The secret to staying dry is getting wet!

Edited: September 28, 2018, 9:21 PM · Ok, well, not exactly.
Just wanted a catchy title.

I still sweat a lot and moisture still condenses on my fingerboard on humid days. But, after the varnish melted off, the deterioration of my gut strings has suddenly stopped.
What changed:
• I'm taking a very intense swimming class
• This also includes general strength training
• Less red meat
• Baking soda. Makes a big mess, though.

No exact conclusions, but my problem is about one half solved now. Hooray.
