Heat Moulding Archies Thongs

Archies Thongs are made from a specialised form of thermoplastic foam, basically, when heated to a certain temperature, the thongs will return to their original shape.


In order to re-tighten your strap, you need to apply heat to it. As such, EXTREME CAUTION must be taken not to burn yourself. So please be very careful. 


Option 1 - Hot water method:


1. Boil the kettle.


2. Put the plug in the kitchen sink and pour the boiling water in.


3. Place the thongs upside down so that the strap is in the hot water. Allow to completely cool before trying the thongs on again.


Option 2 – Hair dryer method:


1. Using a hair dryer, on the hottest setting, apply the hot air to the strap for approx 2-3 minutes or until you can see it start to change shape. 


2. Allow to completely cool before trying the thongs on again.


Both of these methods should re-tighten the strap.
