You might just have really acidic sweat...

1. what type of strings do you use?

2. do you wipe the strings off after you use the cleaner? Cuz i just use water on a microfiber cloth and wipe off the strings and it works quite well.

Look into elixir electric guitar strings

I do believe you just used Blink 182 and hard rock in the same sentence. It would seem you're rather confused.
I have a quote in my signature! And it makes fun of blink-182! I'm cool now!

You suffer from acidic hand sweat, just like I do. Check out Elixirs; they are a life saver.

One thing to note, dont bother buying them from guitar shops, they'll charge you approx £13.50, at least the ones round here do :/

Best thing to do is buy em off the internet, I get mine of this eBay shop which sells em for £7.50, £1 postage.

I've never heard of that before. That's crazy.

Elixir is probably your best bet, but Ernie Ball now makes coated strings. It might be worth a shot . . .
