    Default Treatment for Hover/Intermediate lines

    Anyone know of a line treatment that will not make hover/intermediate lines float?

    wash your line in warm water with a little fairy liquid in it rinse well before drying this should rid any grease on the line
    Id rather have something I don't need than need something I haven't got!!

    Thanks for the reply.
    I wash all my lines a couple of times a season in warm water & washing up liquid then I treat the floating lines with line treatment. I used to treat all my lines but found that it affected the sinking lines making them float or sink slower. I was wondering if there is any treatment available which does not make an intermediate line float.
    Cheers

    Very bottom of the page in this link, Snowbee do a small bottle of line degreaser (removes any grease / silicon residue on the line). Read the instructions.

    I treat all my lines regularly with airflo line dressing and then go over the sinkers with the snobee degreaser. I'm not sure if I am going to too much effort and wasting time dressing the sinkers, or indeed messing them up. Any thoughts?
