Guide to keeping your straps and masks in pristine condition.

This is a guide to keeping your masks and straps in the best condition possible.

Parts Needed
1. Bags long enough for your straps to fit in folded in half.
(availible at Wal-Mart etc.)
2. Stain Remover.
3. Cheap Straps for ea. rare strap you have on a mask.


Storing your masks.

When Storing your straps when not on masks, use the baggies. Just Take the strap fold it in half place it in bag and remove as much air as possible.

Next When storing your full masks keep them somewhere were they are not being crushed. Also keep them in a place were they wont get all dusty like a garage or a basement.
Good Place to store (Nice cool closet)

Bad place to store



How to set up your rare flex for play.
I recomend when using a **RARE** strap use the blind double strap method. This makes it so your strap does not stretch out.


When getting home from playing you are going to want to clean your strap of all dirt and paint. This is how I do it.

First I get out my Stain Remover.


Next I grab my strap i played with that day.


Now take the stain remover and spray it all over the strap.


Next Take a paper towel and wipe all around the strap removing as much paint as possible.


Now take the strap and run it under hot water.


Next Stretch out the strap and place it under heavy books.


Once dry remove it and your strap will be good as new!

Ion - There is already kind of a thread on this... Since we already have the Cleaning and Refurbishing thread. I'm not sure we need a thread devoted entirely to just how to store your straps and what not.


A+ for the effort though.

Yah. Came=past tense of ***. Sounds better than cummed imo.
/akward OT.

Idk, mattresses dont seem like they would push down on the strap as much as books.

All I'm saying is, its not that much different than the other cleaning method. Even matrix's thread says to use stain remover, and its just common sense for a quick clean. Good job nonetheless ion.
