    I've also have used a damp tea towel on more delicate materials but I have yet to do silnylon. I've only used polyester material as far as camping gear.

    I like to use a thin smooth cotton tea towel as opposed to something that is more like a thicker bath towel. It's easier to use, less bulky.
    Yep, I've used a cloth napkin or something thin like that too. I guess I've got to go hijack the family iron down to my workshop. Anyone know where I can buy a heavy duty supercharged chrome and camo iron with flame decals on the sides?

    Get a European one. 220 volts can't be wrong.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?
