Bondage Rope Maintenance

Jute rope needs a lot of care, both when you first receive your purchase and then over time. By initially treating or regularly maintaining your bondage rope, you’ll be able to extend their lifespan and lower the chances of accidents resulting from breakage due to excessive wear and tear. 

You can choose from a variety of products like rope wax, rope oil, rope cream, or rope paste (there are so many kinds!) to lightly nourish the fibers within your rope or coat them with a protective layer.

Friendly tip: Jute rope users may want to learn at least two (2) different bundling methods. Pick a default bundling method and whenever you finish using a particular rope, use the alternate method when you store it back in your bag, bundle, or container. 

This helps you mark which ropes were recently used so you can cycle through your whole set without overusing/excessively wearing out the same pieces of rope.

Esinem writes: “This was made in order to settle some debate about the causes of failure of bondage rope. In another video, we were shown how synthetic rope could easily be cut using friction. In this example, the static part was cut due to the heat generated by friction.  I wanted to test if my belief that natural fibre behaved differently was correct.”
