You will need
- Pot with lid
Fill the pan half way with water and bring it to a boil. Boiling water will allow you to steam the tube until tender.
When the water is boiling, remove the pan from heat and immerse the sieve into the pan so its bottom does not touch the water. It put the cork from the bottle.
Cover the pan with a lid and leave the tube stripped 2-3 minutes depending on the size of the tube (to seal the champagne will have to steam the tube from him for about 5 minutes).
Now the tube you can easily squeeze between your fingers. Don't hold out too long tube of the pair, as it can crumble when cooled and becomes too spongy and it will be difficult to get into a bottle of wine.
After placing the tube in the neck, leave the wine bottle upright for a day or two. This will allow the cork to swell back to its previous size. As soon as it increases, the bottle can be put on the side so that the wine is constantly moistened tube.
Re-steaming the tube often leads her into disrepair, it can crumble right in your hands.
