Had a small stretch - house going on the market. Couldn't quite the wrinkles out. Had my buddie hit them with some really hot water from hi TM then stretched - worked great! Was thinking of bringing my steamer along from now on.

That was how we dealt with jute back long ago. Wet it stretch it and let it shrink. Todays carpet cant do that. Wet it and it looses memory and latex. But if they came out for you awesome. I wouldnt make a habit of it though.

I've been good. How you been? I haven't been here in a while (though I have been lurking here and there) so I figured I'd better get my ass in here and shake things up. Too much B.S. I'm reading. LOL.

Keeping busy is all that matter pal. Never stand still too long. You'll rot faster if you do.

As for you melting. HA! Come to Sarasota where it feels like 105 every day for 4 months straight and humidity so thick you can shovel it off. The summers here are starting to wear on me. But it's still better than snow blowing.
