Hey there,
I hope this is the right forums section to ask. My electric's strings seem to get dirty so fast. I just changed them and they were awesome, nice and smooth and slippery. Now after a week of playing a good amount they are sticky and rough, probably something to do with sweat and oil from my hands.

What should I use to wipe them off and get them back to somewhat normal?

thanks

if you wipe them every time after playing it should help alot
not just after it builds up

use a cloth and wipe it down before and after you play. if you can get your hands on mechanics rags, there great, i just dont know where to get them, so i cant tell you. and i suggest using a string cleaner/lube. i like "dr kysers stringfellow" or "fingerease".
jackson dinky build!

^ GHS Fast Fret is also good.

i dont use normal string cleaner everytime, but i do use a cotton rag everytime i remember to (maybe 1 out of 4 times). that helps a lot.

also, unless i change the strings after about a month's use (what i consider quick) then i like to clean the fretboard with lemon oil and q-tips.

i brought a few of these a while ago, and swear by them to keep your strings clean (even underneath!) and prolong their life
