    An old friend turned me on to this one:
    Put a couple of tablespoons of corn starch in a cloth sack (an old sock for instance) and put that in a plastic bag in your guitar case.
    Dust your fretting hand with it to prevent stickiness. Works like a charm.
    Only caveat: can imbed in wood grain causing white streaks in your purty rosewood fingerboard.

    Please feel free to add your own.

    Old man hack. If you’re like me and you like to drink while you play, keep your cappuccino off the top of your amp. Your dog will knock it over trying to steal your cookie. :lol:
