boil then soak!

  1. Hi TBers, i know there are a few threads floating round about boiling or soaking strings but i had a bit of time on my hands so i decided to try both!
    I boiled the strings in water with dishwashing liquid (detergent), let them dry for a couple of hours, then soaked them overnight in denatured alcohol.
    The strings came up an absolute treat - i have tried both methods seperately before and doing both really makes them sound better than either one method!!! :hyper:
    give it a go and let me know what you think!
