Anyone heard of this trick???

I haven't tried this yet, but a guy at the local fly shop told me he uses Pledge furniture polish to make yarn and similar materials more bouyant. He claims that the wax in the spray penetrates the material and makes it float better, and that it doesn't leave as much of an oil slick as regular floatants.
