Yeah, so i've heard of guys soaking their picks in different liquids mostly for taste (beer, liquor, soda, etc.)...but I'm wondering if there's something you can soak your picks in that will actually benefit the pick in any way.

By which i mean, increasing/decreasing flexibility, increasing longevity, etc.

Let me save this thread from its already brutal beating, as it's gasping for life right now thanks to the-kid.

I don't think there's anything to soak a pick in that will do anything other than make it wet. Dipping it in some hydrochloric acid might make it thinner, but that's quite a dangerous task. Just buy some new picks if you aren't happy with your current ones.
Heads will roll. Throats will be slit. Blood will flow like springs of water.
