A warm, very shallow soak soak in an enclosed container, for about 40 minutes wouldn’t hurt either. Remember, only the vent needs to be in water. We’re just talking aboiut a few millimters here, at least in situations where the snake isn’t allowed to get out. Another thing that sometimes loosens them up is putting them in a container on top of the clothes dryer while it’s running. That trick can be combined with the very-shallow warm water trick, to get double value out of it.
