Rub some sandpaper on it and run it under hot water. Also, wash it with conditoner/shampoo. Should break it in pretty well.

Try shaving cream. I always fill my pocket with it after it is strung, let it sit for 15 minutes then rinse off.

I have never tried goalie mesh but for my mesh i stretch it out dry, then soak in hot water for 5 mins, Stretch till its almost dry, rinse under hot water while stretching, massage in hair conditioner for 5 mins then rinse under hot water while strectching. Sting while the mesh is still wet.

windex and a pocket screw, repeat every three hours for three cycles. I used to work as a stick stinger, nothing seems , at least for hard mesh, to work better than this (at least for the labor put into it).

put it in a box full of shaving cream and conditioner for a day. It will come out perfectly semi-hard
