strings dieing and coming back to life and dieing again

  1. I took my dead strings and boiled them. I put them back on the bass after like 15 minutes of boiling them. The E string sounded quiet dull and dead, but the a d and g were nice bright and new sounding. then the day after i played the bass again to find that the E string sounded good and bright and clear again but now the A string is dead. Earlier today I played it hoping that the A would come back to life too but it didn't... this is odd
