Boil your strings!

I don't know if there already is a thread about this, so I decided to create one. I was once given a tip by another bassist. He said instead of buying new strings every time they sound dull, that he boils his strings in water, and it cleans them so they sound like new. I tried it myself, and was surprised to hear how good it sounded. If I remember correctly, it's almost as good as when I just bought them. You should have seen all the white dead skin and crap floating in the water after
Give it a try
