Unless you like malt whisky - DON'T USE DETTOL!!!

Manitas soaked his whistle and recorder fipples in Dettol about 14 years ago. There is STILL a whaft of smell when you open the case.

Use rum or gin. It will kill the germs just as effectively and won't stink the place out with an unbearable pong!
