Well hi everyone, I hope you are all okay. I have a question, what is the best thing to clean your violin strings with? Maybe alcohol? Some special liquid? Or any other substances? I heard once you could clean your violin (and it was recommended) with some oil; I can't recall what type of oil it was, but it was like regular kitchen oil (or something like it).
So, what do you think is the best way to clean your strings and why?
EDIT: I remember the oil now; Almond Oil is what they had recommended me for cleaning violins. Anyone ever used this? And is it effective? Also, thanks to everyone who has answered below :)
