Deana is at it again! I don't like waiting for the tassles to eventually unbend when putting new ones on my Bal-bags. So after a few different ideas, this is the one I found most effective. I take a clean tupperware container and I wrap the tassles around it. Some take only one night and others I have had to wrap one way for a night, then take it off and wrap it the other way for a night. After the kinks are all out instead of putting them back in plastic to get wrinkled again, I hang them from a pants hanger, cover them in plastic and hang them in my closet. Anal you say? Yes I am, but it works! My tassles are all smooth and pretty. Does anyone have other techniques?
