Default fixing a bubble in a disc

i know there's threads about flattening a tacoed or too-domey disc, but i haven't seen anything on bubbles.

and no, i'm not talking about the tiny comestic flaws you can see in the rims of champ plastic.

i have a supersoft wizard that i whanged right into a tree on a full blast drive about 30 feet away, so now one section of the disc has a bubble that looks like someone hammered into with a baseball, or something of equivalent diameter.

i occasionally try to press it back in with my thumbs, but it just pops right back out.

anyone got a trick to flatten this thing out?

Some people use boiling water. You could probably search to find a more detailed how-to, but bascially what you do is this:

Put a cookie sheet on the countertop.
Put the disc face-down on the cookie sheet.
Boil some water.
Pour the water into the disc, like it's a bowl.
Now take a second cookie sheet, and place it on top of the disc.
Put a pan, phonebook, or a brick on top.
Let the water cool.
Check out the disc - if the dent is still there, repeat.

If the dent is popping up when you look at the top of the disc, I have heard some people putting a coin or two in that area when they place the disc face-down. That way, you get a little inward pressure to help correct the dent.

I've heard the boiling water trick works well, but the easiest thing to do is just keep throwing it and not worry about it.
