Tattered Towel

Deasy: Was sweating when I came to the office today from the morning swim. But it was a good feeling. I don't turn on the aircon nowadays especially with the relatively cooler weather. I only turn it on when there's heavy traffic on the way to the office.

I noticed that my first Arena Sports Towel is starting to fall apart. There's now a big tear 3 inches long and there are other smaller tears and holes. Has it been a year? I've had this towel since (hold on while I search the archives)... Yup, been more than a year. I've used it since July16 of last year and has served me very very well. I just don't know if the way I washed it recently contributed to its decay. It's been getting stubborn stains lately and I used bleach to remove them. The instructions clearly prohibits it though. Here's what I did to remove the stains and make it spotless:
  1. Wash the towel well with detergent - no scrubbing, just wringing.
  2. Leave the towel to soak in the soapy water for a day.
  3. Rinse it well.
  4. Soak the towel in water with 2 tablespoons of bleach for a day.
  5. Rinse well and aerate in the shade.
  6. Roll it up and put it back in the tube.
  7. Pour a little vinegar in the center or core of the towel.
I modified the wrestling move I described a few months ago so it'll look ultra cool.
  • Do NOT touch/ grab the deck or wall to support you.
  • Push water down with both arms simultaneously to pull body forward and bend back.
  • Raise your legs simultaneously so that the top of the knees break the surface. You'll need to ensure a lungful of air so the head doesn't sink.
Felt sleepy all afternoon today. I was up until midnight last night reading these articles/ blogs about migration.
