Default Sticking reeds on mouth calls Any Remedies?

I find my doubles and triples tend to stick together. It seems if you keep them in your mouth long enough they finally seperate. However if I need to change calls quickly now thats a problem. Any solutions out there? I usually rinse after the hunt and try to dry as well as possible. If any place will have answers I'm sure this forum will thanks in advance guys

Before I go out in the morning. I put the call in my mouth. Basically holding it about 50 out of my mouth. Then blow out some air really hard. The call will make a sound like a 300lb mosquito. The idea is to run air over the top and bottom of the reeds. It usually loosens them up.

You could soak them for a few seconds in a mouthwash and water solution. This cleans them out really well and leaves them tasting minty fresh for your first few calls!

I've seen people stick toothpics in between the reeds. Haven't tried it myself, but I believe it works...just don't damage the reeds.

I carry a small water tight container in my vest that I keep my calls in and every day I wash them in mouth wash and just keep them in the cantainer while hunting... When I get home I was them off real good with water and put the container in the freezer until next trip... I usually get two to three years out of my mouth calls
