Biggest thing is your mouthpiece!  Wash with HOT HOT HOT soapy water,  
use dish soap like Palmolive etc. NOT dishwasher detergent!!!

Rinse well & then give it a splash of Listerine or Scope mouthwash & 
rinse again.

Scrub your upper tube and leadpipe with a brush & same soapy solution & 
rinse.

That's about all you can or need to do.  Maybe wipe anywhere your hands 
contact the horn with an alcohol wipe.

And wash your hands often with plain soap!
