Anti-Clogging fluid for fipple flutes
Whistle players, just like recorder players and other fipple flutes, occasionally have an issues of the fipple (windway) clogging up with their saliva. The usual practice is to do a quick “upsuck” during a rest and wipe the droplets of saliva away, but one can treat the inside of the fipple with this fluid made of reduced sodium lauryl sulfate, or Stepanol (same as Duponol solution); stop up the tip of the fipple with your finger with the whistle turned foot-end up, and put some drops of this solution into the exit end of the fipple (windway). Let it sit for a minute or two, then remove your finger and shake it out, then letting it air dry. This will act as a coating to prevent your saliva from “sticking” to the windway. Apply as needed. Not necessary for fifes or transverse flutes.
