What can I do with old guitar strings? Answered

Since I started performing semi-regularly I find that I'm getting through guitar strings much more quickly. I feel bad simply throwing my old strings in the dustbin, but the local recycling effort doesn't accept them. So I'm looking for something to do with my old strings. Is there a way to recycle them, or can anyone suggest something interesting to do with them?

Well you could use them to garrote people, but I don't think you're inclined to be a killer. Make an acoustic musical instrument: sound box, bridge, frets - show us what you can do? L

You could always use them for shoe strings, but if ur gonna do that, bass strings would be the better option.

the 3 higher strings are usually rusted, or black and about to rust... so i throw those away. Then i use the others to tie things, or hang paintings. I have lots of strings (have to change them every month or they rust on me!) and lots of artwork.

Use them to clean out carburetor passages and jets.

I don't drive, but I could donate a few to people I know who do. Cheers!
