Straightening circular cord

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to straighten the cord on bamboo circulars? Can I boil the needles or just the cord?

Nevermind! I just found on this blog that if you boil the bamboo there’s a good chance the needles will expand. Soooo instead, I just boiled water, removed the pan from the stove, and soaked the cord into the hot water. Then I just stretched the cord for a little while. Voila!!! Sraight-ish cord! :thumbsup:

I remember seeing that Q answered somewhere here, Danielle…you may want to try a search of "straighten cords"

U don’t always have to boil the water. I’ve found that if I fill my sink with all hot water and drop the circs in for a few minutes, then they straighten right out
