Ok, so a lot of places say that boiling strings in water is a real bad idea, and that "denatured alchohol" is the best way to clean them... What is this stuff? Is it the same as white spirit (I don't know if that's a UK thing or whether it's something completely different). I've also read that some people who boil their strings recommend baking them at max temperature in an oven for half an hour afterwards to get all the water out of the cores... Any truth behind this?

I need to do something to my strings, and I need to do it tonight before I go to bed! Please help

Fuck it, I'll boil the bastards. I challenge them to hold any water inside of them in this bloody heat
