Boiling Silk-wrapped strings HELP!

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Masterbasser71, Nov 28, 2005.

  1. How do I boil my Rotosound silk wrapped strings? I don't want to ruin the silk wrapping like I have before. Is there any way to cover them when the strings boil, and then viola! the silk wrapping is just like when you put it in to boil? Suggestions? Thanks much, you guys rock.

    don't use silk wrapped strings ;)
  3. Soak them in denaturated alcohol like the rest of us ;)

    I just orient them in the boiling pan so that the post winding end isn't in the water...I'll have to try the alcohol thing sometime, but I get good results from the boiling.
