Disintegrating Pajamas

Pajamas that disintegrate over the course of a night.

You go to bed in the pajamas, but over the course of the night they slowly disintegrate so in the moring you are nude. This is for people who can't decide whether they want to sleep in the nude or wear pajamas. Now they can do both! They would be made of a starch-based polymer, activated by the moisture given off by your skin. The starch would rehydrate and absorb back into your skin. 100% enviromentally friendly. This could also make a fun party prank item.

Same mechanism as this, presumably http://www.halfbake...solving_20underwear

       You're going to have to do better than this.  Maybe describe the material to greater detail and, especially, the mechanism for its disintegration.  Without such detail this is just a wishful, and boring, dream for a magical material and not an invention.

       The shower I can easily imagine how the fabric would disintegrate (dissolve) but I'd like to know how the inventor thinks he or she would create a fabric that disintegrates only due exposure to a bed for a night.   

       Maybe it could rapidly oxidize (like those new EZ-D DVDs) or something but the poster should articulate this mechanism, no?

       But you're not really doing both, just clothed for the first part of the night, nude the rest. How bout you just set an alarm, take off you PJ's, go back to bed? Silly, but not silly enough. [-]

       "Maybe it could rapidly oxidize..."
Make sure you sleep on *top* of the covers!

       Maybe activated by an electric blanket or something. Do they still make those horrid things?

       this part of the world has been so hot and sticky lately that anything water soluble would work. not keen on not being able to find anything to wear in a hurry if there was an emergency though.

       Maybe body hair shreds the material? - but then it would be difficult to put on.

       This was here before. Surprised it's not now. Could have sworn it was one of Ivan Idea's ideas.

       Ivanidea did RollaSheet. I remember the pyjama one vaguely.
