    There have been threads about this already.

    Consensus: Taking 5 minutes to explain a 2 minute process is not good time management.

    You must read very slowly.

    Enjoy having your thread moved to the strings section.

    I like the sound before better than after.

    It's like wacking a rug with a stick. Knocks the gunk loose.

    That's my theory anyway.

    Always wanted to try this out, but was afraid I'd lose something even more valuable: my frets.

    Try doing it over a large sheet of white paper to see if crud is actually falling out of the strings.

    This is not nearly as useless as boiling.

    I remember doing the boiling thing when I was a kid and couldn't afford new strings

    I hope I'm not the only one here who got that "thrifty Scot" reference! Very good on ya!! However, I still think we Micks have perfected the skinflint stereotype, though. :D:D:D:D

    If it works for you, it works!

    I use flats so I don't have crud on my strings. ;)
