WE all can't resist a last-minute swim in the morning before packing up (or rushing to check out more likely) but it always leaves us with a load of wet clothing to stuff in our bags.
In case you forgot a plastic bag, or just want stuff dry as possible, there's one simple trick to expediting the process.
Usually, we just give stuff a good wringing then leave them out in the sun to get damaged dried out ASAP, but to get it there even faster do this bit of prep work:
- Lay a dry towel out
- Flatlay your clothing on top
- Roll it together like a burrito
- Give it a few squeezes as well and it'll turn a wet piece into something much more manageable.
in our extensive beach-going experience, we rarely see anyone do this, so we're putting the secret out there for you, bros. Now, three other quick answers to quick drying questions:
Is using a fan to dry my clothes in the room okay if walang araw?
Yes, a breeze helps stuff dry off. The only time indoor drying will backfire is in a really humid room—aka don't try to dry stuff off in the bathroom because it'll actually take longer.
Is it okay to dry stuff in an airconditioned room?
No balcony? No problem. Clothes will actually dry faster in an airconditioned room since AC's suck out moisture along with heat. It's not by a lot, but science says so. Hope you don't have stinky clothes though!
Does saltwater ruin cotton clothes?
While it will be stiff AF when a sea-soaked shirt dries, saltwater doesn't really do any lasting damage to clothing. It takes way longer for cotton to dry off after a soak so why, though?
