I've heard a lot about cleaning guitar strings. Well what do you think about using Javex to clean them?? i remember when i was a teenager and money was scarce for buying strings so when my guitar strings were on for a few months i placed them in a tub of water with Javex added-yes you could see the dirt leaving them-that was the days of Black Diamond strings-at least it worked. anyone have this experience??
maybe it caused the strings to corrode, and what you saw was the result of putting the strings in water. i just wipe my strings off with a cleaning cloth. it works fine.
I use wd40 a little on a cleaning cloth, specially good if you live close to the sea like i do. Cheers
