Great.  Does it breathe?


/or does it stink like polyester?

Doesn't sound so good on these very hot and muggy days.

Gonna put on my iron shirt, chase Satan out of Eart.

So how do you clean it? I understand that it won't wick up sweat, but if the inside of a microwave can harbor odor, so can magic cotton.

boil some vinegar water in that microwave and let it sit for 20-30 minutes.

Came to ask exactly that.

If it does actually work, we will have surpassed Back to the Future 2 in at least something. No more automatic blow dryers in the garment.

Speaking of clothing that never gets wet, give my regards to your wife's panties.

Dress/business clothing made of this = good (no coffee stains @ work)
Casual/active clothing made of this = bad

I have a few t-shirts/polos that do a great job of wicking and evaporating via whatever magical technology they were made with.  It's kind of fun to sweat and feel like I'm wrapped in air conditioner on a 90 degree day, and then be dry 10 minutes later.  This sounds like the wearer would be wrapped in plastic.

Pfffft, my gimp outfit has been able to do that for years.

ThinkGeek makes shirts like that. You have to take the electronics out before you can wash them.

So to clean my shirts I would have to boil them in vinegar? Pass.

You have an unusual definition of "fun".

That's not a disparagement, btw - just an observation.

Should have specified.  I'm gay so my microwave is squeaky clean.  The one at work, however, smells like a cat took a dump on a wheel of Parmesan and someone microwaved it for an hour.

So I have 100 garments I wash one way then another garment I have to use a special procedure for.

How is this an improvement?

For clarity, I was talking about getting the smell out of a microwave.

Well, duh.  You can't eat that stuff cold.

At $65 a shirt, I won't mind getting my old Hane's one washed and rewashed.

Thanks.  Another "smacks forehead -- I should have thought of that" moment, brought to me by Fark.

White vinegar is farking awesome for many things - so much so that you can pick up a paperback listing it's uses.

Yes Muta.  You are wife's are always wet.

Good enough job for half a gold star.

That sounds like your typical fark tech snob that will call you stupid for not liking a program that doesn't work like all the other stuff, and saying how easy it is to use said clumsy workaround.

If microwaving my sardines at work is wrong, I don't want to be right.

How about learning to eat and drink without dribbling all over your clothing?

Starhawk: Well, duh. You can't eat that stuff cold.

No, the best way to tell if the cat poop Parmesan is any good is to eat it cold.

FlashHarry: i was hoping for some guidance as to what a wet t-shirt might look like.

It's not a difficult procedure.  Get out a t-shirt and pour some water on it.

lindalouwho: White vinegar is farking awesome for many things

That's racist.

Wet T-shirt thread.

Not a single tit anywhere.

You should all feel deep, penetrating shame.

And this is your punishment:

Or, for you chubby chasers, your reward. Come on... I know a bunch of you guys are in the Emma Watson & Keira Knightley threads complaining that she's not built like Ms. America here.

Need to hurry up and incorporate that into automobile windshields and body panels.
 
2014-07-21 07:33:12 PM  
A shirt like this could be a nice addition to the deck bag.  I have a fast wicking pool shirt now, but one that never gets wet?  Even better!
