    actually, i bought it because sometimes i'm lazy to put my camera back into the dricabi.
    and i'll just leave it in the room.
    at least 50-60% wont really encourage fungus growth.

    Skip the dryer, use the bleach solution. And when you hang-dry your clothes, point a fan at them so that they dry faster.

    bleach actually corrodes your clothings...slowly.

    what's worse is bleach corrodes metal.

    Hmm...
    Interesting topic. Well, i guess the blackness is due to the fact that these towels loss their fibre content that actuall holds the actual color pigments perhaps. And loss the effect of making them look white under light. I guess just like the hollow needle like furs in Polar bears which make them look white. But its actually greyish blackish transparent...

    Most of the old towels seem to loss thier fibres and hence lack ability to "glow" hehehe....my theory...

    This "unexpected romantic encounter" involves any exchange of money?

    Naaah... Why worry about smelling like sweat if you paid for it? Besides, I don't spend $$$ there... I'd rather save up for lenses or a nice steak dinner.

    Well, in the small solutions I use, the clothes would get corroded so slowly that I'd be throwing them away/turning them into rags before they get corroded anyway

    If u don't have time to sun-dry your shirts or T-shirts and u get that horrible sweaty smell the moment u start perspiring, a simple solution is to soak them in bleach solution overnight. Guarantee to get rid of that sweaty smell even if u don't sun-dry it.
