The best of both worlds?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by themajorrager, Jul 1, 2005.


  1. Hi TBers,

    on the topic of soaking Vs boiling strings, has anyone tried doing both? ie boiling the strings (maybe with some dishwashing liquid added) then letting them cool before soaking them in denatured alcohol overnight?
    just thought it might be the best of both worlds as the soaking after boiling would eliminate any water trapped in the strings from the boiling :eyebrow:
