: : You're removing all the oils, dirt, and gunk from the strings, so they're going to vibrate more freely.
: That's not what the boiling does. when you play the strings, the windings get loose. boiling tightens the windings so the string is restored somewhat to it's original condition.
Actually, it does *both*; the fact that it tightens the winding up is something that we don't really think about, though...
