This will save me a month or two at most...
If you want to keep them clean, one better idea is to use some liquid like this one : http://www.thomann.de/fr/dunlop_formula65.htm - I have had the same Daddario strings on my bass for 4 months now, no sight of dirt on them
any instrument, whenever possible. Have you ever bought strings in bulk, like a case? They are much cheaper that way. When Guitar Center opened a store in my city, they ran an opening special- buy one get eleven free (for guitar or bass).
