: I don't know if it will "bring them back" if they are very dried out, but walnut oil is suggested for keeping gut strings healthy. You should use a sharp implement to nip off the hairs, perhaps a high quality nail clipper would be a good choice.
Thanks, Bob. They're not too dry, it's more the hairiness. Nipping seems like quite a project. Do people ever just lightly run a razor blade over them? I might try the walnut oil too. Would that come from a furniture shop or something?
