When you first open a tin of Bounder it will be smooth, creamy and easy to apply.
A quick scoop with the back of a thumbnail and it is ready to tame your ‘tache.
However, if you have found a long-forgotten tin and the contents have dried out, do not fear!
Your Bounder can be easily revived and put back to work on your whiskers.
Bounder can be revived by simply warming and stirring in a drop or two of rum or any other spirits.
Warm it by putting a bit of paper in a frying pan (to catch any spills), place the tin on top (with lid removed) and very gently heat it on the lowest setting.
When it is not quite liquid, stir in just a couple of drops of rum (or any other spirit - even just water, in an emergency)
And “drops” means just that - do not add more than one or two; you can repeat the process if required.
Turn off the heat and and let everything cool with the lid placed, unscrewed, on top of the tin. Be patient - do not test until it is at room temperature.
Do not try and seal it whilst liquid as there is a high chance of spilling it (molten Bounder gets everywhere, instantly) and, even if successful, the vacuum created as it cools will make getting back into the tin with anything less than a pneumatic drill practically impossible.
