1. Boiled rope:
Boil the rope for 10-30 minutes. The boiled rope has the effect of removing some peculiar smell and disinfecting.
2. Waxing or oiling (optional):
As an optional step, the melting point of this type of material is close to room temperature. Apply oil or wax to cotton gloves or thin towels or cloth, and evenly spread it on the surface of the rope body, so that the rope can maintain a certain strength during singeing, and when singing It will melt completely deep into the rope.
It is recommended to use a household gas stove, other appliances such as alcohol lamps are more dangerous. Fold the rope in half and hold both ends of one section, and open the flame to the minimum. Move the rope quickly on the flame several times until the sparks on the surface of the rope disappear, which means that the burrs on the surface of the rope are burned. Then move to the next section and repeat the operation. Floating dust will be produced during singeing. It is recommended to wear a mask. Wipe the surface of the hemp rope after burning off the burrs with a damp cloth. A small amount of fine burrs will reappear when wiping, which is a normal phenomenon.
4. Waxing or oiling:
In the same step (2), apply jojoba oil, horse oil, baby oil, beeswax or formula wax on the surface of the rope body. The function of this step is to maintain the toughness of the hemp rope fiber and improve the skin-friendly properties of the hemp rope.
