    This is NOT a replacement for the usual rod cleaning of the flute. These are not design to dry or clean the inside of the flute. They are designed for drying out THE PADS ONLY. I have used these for more than 4 years with NO adverse effect. I do use them the correct way. After using any of my 4 flutes I do the regular rod cleaning/drying and then I plug the pad savers in and move them back and forth in the flute so the most hairy part of the pad saver sticks out of each hole, I then depress each and every key so each pad makes contact with the surface of the pad saver. The pad saver itself must be cleaned in hot soapy water at least every 2 weeks and let air dry. Never use the pad saver without rod cleaning the flute first unless you have no choice. The pad savers work on diplacement of humidity against the large ‘hairy’ surface. They DO work if used properly. I have had no health issue, no foul odor or any pad problems in any of my 4 flutes for the last 4 years.

    So I have heard from my instructor NEVER TO LEAVE THIS IN THE FLUTE FOR STORAGE, Just to keep that as important information, it will keep moisture in the flute leading to mold and pad rot. On the other hand, this thing is amazing for getting moisture out of the flute. It is very thirsty and can dry out the wettest flute in a few seconds. I recommend leaving it out to dry before storing it because it might mold if you put it away damp. (thus why leaving it in the flute would be a terrible idea.) I rated 4 instead of 5 because it claims that you should leave it in the flute, when that has been shown to be counter-conducive to flute health.
