    Until I hear different I am saying that he’s clueless or just making a joke. I see no reason to ever iron my strings.

    Using an iron to heat the strings causes the windings to relax and the subsequent cooling retightens them at the string tension realigning the chronosynclasticity thereby enhancing mojotility.

    But it doesn't work very well with nylon tapewound strings.
