Talcum Powder

Tidy Talc Dispenser
  [vote for,

I love swimming but I hate the faintly damp tacky feeling after I am dressed which comes from too little towel and too small changing rooms. Talc is the obvious answer but not only are the obvious health risks if it gets down below, but it usually makes a horrid cement like mess on the damp floor. My solution is a talc puffer like a camera lens cleaner, so you can strategically pfft your talc to your damp areas avoiding the nether regions and the floor. This puffer comes with a lid and comes in a variety of natty designs which your can co ordinate with your cozzie or goggles if you are so inclined.

       health risks? it has been discovered that talc is so fine that it can actually infiltrate through the skin.

       Uh oh, maybe another rethink is required, darn!

       Corn starch will do, now for another naming conundrum.

       Corn Chowder?

       [Exportersindia] seems intent on spamming.   

       W.R.T. the idea, the better solution would be an air- shower that blasts the slightly-damp, post-towel swimmer with warm dry air for thirty seconds.

       Why not simply use a non-toxic hydrophobic spray before entering the pool ?

       Or a topically applied hydrophobic ointment? Like Vaseline?
