    When people talk about cleaning strings with alcohol is vodka O.K. or should I be using mentholated spirits?

    Denatured alcohol is what I use. It's worked fine so far.

    Edit: Just realized what side this is on- no idea if denatured alcohol works for DB strings. Sorry.
     
  3. A bottle of isopropylic alcohol which you can buy at the local drugstore for $2 is what people use.
    Not the drinking alcohol...
     
  4. alco level has to be at least 70% for cleaning... but i never use alco to clean strings...

    just whip them with a clean cloth after you stop playing
