I just got Labella plain gut strings ( G & D ) and Eudoxa ( A & E ) strings as well as Olive ( G & D ). I have some question...

1. What is the proper care and maintenance of those plain and wrapped gut strings ? Almond oil or something else?

2. I also heard that the nuts and bridge slots have to be adjusted to allow free movement of the strings, otherwise they would break. Does it happen all the time? If so, Is it easy to make those slots widen by myself or should I bring it to shop?

3. I also heard that gut string can be useless quickly by too much bowing playing. Is this true?

Thanks for your answering
