    How to clean a bowstring?

    I have a blue/white/black string that I got from bucknasty on here and I have gotten it dirty (mainly the white). Does anyone know what I can use to safely clean it with out damaging it, and make it look all new again. I think it is made out of 452x.

    Its not what I do.........Its who I am..

    Scorpion makes a cleaner wax.
    I think Winners Choice also makes a cleaner wax.

    You can also just rub in a huge amount of regular string wax,
    with your fingers until your fingers get warm.

    Then, with a 12-inch or longer strand of dental floss,
    wrap around the bowstring once or twice.

    Pull tight on both end of the dental floss to tighten up the loop of floss around the bowstring.

    Start from one end and go down to the other end.

    The loop acts like a scraper.
    Keep the floss tight,
    and pull and slide the loop down the string.

    The excess wax builds up on the dental floss.

    Repeat several times (wax up the string, and then scrape off).

    This kinda works.
