Coming back to the bass after a 15 year separation. I recall being told once by a luthier that it was a good thing periodically to clean metal strings with some mineral oil on a clean cloth.

Does that sound right? What else do you folks do to clean and maintain metal strings? (If it matters, mine are Helicore Orchestra mediums.)
