blowdrying towel

Yes, it can get wet.

A towel made of a fluffy porous material - or a towel with a system of interconnected tubes - which is connected to a wall-mounted unit, which forces air throughout the towel. Perfumes and colognes can be added to the unit for easy application.

Towel Warmer http://www.thehardw...h_towel_warmers.php
There are 113 versions of towel warmers on this site. Surely one of them can warm your fluffy, porous, terry-cloth towel adequately. [jurist, Oct 05 2004]

       2 layers with the warm air in-between - nice. I want one   

       oh! its not for me, its for fluffy :(

       Would be really nice in the winter. +

       Towel warmers already abound. (link) Are you sure that you really want a blow-dry version with all the attendant risk of fire danger? And heat-gel perfumes are readily available as plug-in room scents, so does there really need to be a separate perfume vat if you are already using a plug-in towel dryer?

       you have changed the category - so its NOT for fluffy then?

       A fluffy porous material that is also a system of interconnected airtubes, and is presumably comfortable enough to use on one's skin - magic technology, if you ask me.

       //magic technology, if you ask me.//   

       It would be possible to intergrate small vented tubing with holes along them into a cotton towel. Besides, I described it as a fluffy porous material (something akin to a sponge but sealed at the edges) OR a towel with a system of vented tubes.

       The air needn't be necessarily heated - the point is to have the air drying you, not heat. The actual powered unit is mounted on the wall, the towel connected by a tube to prevent any risk of shock or fire. And the perfume/cologne feature is for application on yourself, not the room.

       For what it's worth, oatcake, I understood what you meant and I like the idea. Maybe have it set up kinda like the vacuum cleaner system where the main unit is in the garage and there are ports through-out the house. Only this will have a blow port in the bathroom and all it would blow is air or perfumed air, no (or little) electricity involved.

       I was considering that, but I figured a mounted wall unit would be easier to install. The wall port would be far simpler and discreet, though.

       Did you delete my anno, or have I lost my mind?
bristolz, May 18 2003
  

       You must've lost it. I didn't delete any, unless I made some slip-up click unbeknownst to me...
oatcake, May 18 2003
  

       Yeah. I must have.
