The best way to dry off after taking a
terms of getting dry as quickly as possible, is to use the following
two-step, two-towel procedure.
The first step is called Bulk Drying. This is when you wipe
most of the water off of your body. After this step, you'll still be
a little wet because the drying is imperfect. The technical
reason is that as your body get drier, the towel gets
wetter until you both reach some sort of moistness
equilibrium where you can't get any drier and the towel can't
get any wetter.) This uses up the first towel.
The second step is called Fine Tuning. This is when
you dry off the remaining moisture and all of the
little nooks and crannies that remain.
After this, you will be
nice and dry and ready to take on the day. I
For Bulk Drying, you should use a big, fluffy towel; whereas
for Fine Tuning, a thin towel is best.
Another mistake newbies often make is to dry off in the
bathroom. How can anyone expect to get dry in a room that's
close to 100% humiditiy? Go into your bedroom or
something and you'll get dry a lot quicker.
The absolute best way to dry off, in terms of fun, is to have your
boyfriend or girlfriend help
you out. If you do this, you can actually get completely
dry (momentarily, at least) with a single towel due to
enthusiastically vigorous rubbing.
