Default Re: Stiff hoses

If they aren't 100% washable, DO NOT RUN WATER thru them. Those types of hoses, I hang over the steam pipe i have running thru my apt with small weights tied to the ends. after a day or two, they seem to straighten out - if they are kinked, you might have to worry about new hoses. only one of mine came like this, but it was a very poorly made cheap hose, so i just tossed it anyways.

washable hoses are alittle easier to straighten, run ultra hot water thru them for a few min, then strech them (carefully now, don't pull off the end tips) and then let them lay out straight to cool.

But nammors, this trick doesn't seem to work very well. (or home-made mod hoses either). I have a nammor with kinks in it STILL so I can't help you there much.
