1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    How hot is a fabric steamer? A hairdryer might work also, I'm not sure which one gets hotter

    It depends on the type of steamer - I have a travel steamer that emits steam similar to the steam from boiling a pan of water on the stove. I have a professional steamer that steams as hot as a steam iron and it does a great job of removing odors and wrinkles from wool clothing. Never tried it on jeans though.

    Not a bad idea... might get some of the you-stank out of them as well. (You in general, not you ron [​IMG] )

    Welcome to the forum BTW.


    Thanks j. Although I must admit it has cost me a few hundred bucks since I found this forum a couple of weeks ago - just ordered some jeans from Denim Bar the other day (hard for me to pass up a good sale).

    I had this exact same problem with my dry jeans when i did a cold soak and then sat at my desk until they dried; the knees were stretched out quite a bit and then dried to a point where they were annoying the crap out of me about 1 week later.

    So what I did was just get a spray bottle, filled it with water, and sprayed both knees until they were damp (misting level). I let them dry overnight and well, in the morning they actually shrank back down to an acceptable level and i love them to death [​IMG] nothing really magical to it, but it seemed to work!
