This is an answer I'm very proud of. Years ago I used to sing with a cover band and my friend who played the sax would wax it to make it look shiny and new. Waxing works by filling in the porous structure of the horn. This fills any tiny holes and cracks and smooths out the surface of the horn. Another thing I noticed was that after waxing it seemed like the horn seemed lighter and more responsive. However, this was also the case the first time I ever played my horn. I have no scientific proof that any all of this is due to waxing, I just have a hunch. One of the main reasons I don't do it anymore is that I am really bad at it. I usually end up getting some wax on the mouthpiece which is a pretty big no no.

Mop and Glo is not the best cleaner to use on horns. The problem is that the cleaner contains ammonia and can be harmful to your instrument if not used carefully. It can remove finish and cause the wood to rot. If you use Mop and Glo, you must be sure to wipe it off as soon as you're done and let the horn dry completely before it touches any other instrument. Also, you should only use Mop and Glo on brass instruments, not woodwinds. Or, you could buy a good buffing brush and wipe the horn down every now and then. This ensures it stays clean and shiny without harming the finish. But I would leave the cleaning to a professional every few months.
