Default Tried and proven trick...guitarist/bassists read!

So i heard that boiling old guitar strings will make them as good as new....but i also heard people say it doesn't work...and some claim they only sound good for a while then they go dead...so after playing my acoustic today i thought...these strings suck...and figured worst that could happen was i get new strings anyways...so i tried it...and it works amazingly...brilliant sound and feel....good as new...but i will only play them after boiling them until they go bad again then i'll get new strings...because im sure boiling them will take something away from their durability...so if you have bad strings and cant afford new ones...BOIL THEM!

i did that before on a bass. It sounded exactly like GDs bass on the funeral for a friend song "streetcar" for a bit.
