Well, a while back I thought my E string was getting very worn, so when I took it to the “violin doctor” to fix my chin rest, I asked about the string. He said if I drink a lot of soda, when I my fingers sweat and touch the strings, they’d cause it to rust before breaking, I guess because the sugar in the soda comes through the oils in your skin. Thought that was interesting, but I am sure it differs with different strings.
