You don't want to "boil" .... Just dip in very hot water. This in effect shrinks or tightens the cord and any knots tied in it.

It gives the cord more consistency when tying. all good whip makers do this so the cord doesn't shrink differently if it gets wet after a whip is made. Or any other project for that matter.

I will say, if you make monkey's Fists, you'll want to dip the finished mf in hot water after you make it to really tighten up the cords. :)
