    Out of curiosity, would a cologne make a decent string cleaner due to its very high alcohol content? I know after shave can be used, but there's not a single bottle of that in this house. Thanks.

    How about rubbing alcohol?
    Much less expensive, doesn't have extra chemical stuff.
    Save your cologne for better usage! :)

    I saw this thread and thought, boy, if this isn't a tailor-made question for Francois, I don't know what is! ;)

    Yeah, but rubbing alcohol won't give your bass that enchanting musk all the ladies dig...
