    Hello Farers, have recently “come in” to some 1/2″ black braided sheets which don’t seem to have had much use [ no apparent scuffing etc] but seriously unpliable. Obviously been stored for a long time and have taken on the shape of the coil from which they don’t want release. Any ideas on how to soften them would be appreciated. Pete [Redsky]

    Try warm water with a bit of washing up liquid in it!

    Thanks colin, will try that in the bath, might add some fabric softener to it also. ❓ ❓ Pete

    After one week soaking in soap and softener they are still stiff when dry, so I’ll just use them for non sailing stuff.
