Drying clothes and footwear near the fire

Clothes dryer is desirable to provide a special "hangers" 2-3 stakes driven into the ground, slingshots stacked them zherdinami transverse or parallel to the bonfire stretched ropes. They must not be located above the flame, and at some distance from it. The temperature in the drying zone should not exceed 45—60°C, otherwise the clothes may lose its original strength, and synthetic – melt.

Strong heating not only dries much spoil things! Check the temperature regime is easiest placing in the drying zone face or arm. If your skin is hot, then heat is excessive and "dryer" better to push away from the fire.

At short halts, when there is no time to build sheds capital-reflectors, they can be made from soaked outerwear than combine business – warming the frozen bodies with their own helpful – drying of clothes. To this end, the sleeves of jackets, coats and so on. Skipped rope, which is then stretched parallel to the bonfire behind the seated near the fire people.

Instead, you can use a long rope zherdinu laid on twigs near trees or "hangers" – stakes driven into the ground, to which are attached the cross stick, push the sleeves.

Shoes before drying it is necessary to unlace, spread, and if it does not hold a shape, stretch tops of the sides with small sticks inserted inside. Then it is necessary to put the shoes on the side they planted a dry stone, hang on the branches stuck in the ground, or tie up over the fire with the help of ropes. Just be sure to cotton, which is not afraid of fire. And be sure to push away from the fire.

Most inexperienced travelers do the opposite, ie. E. Wanting to get a quick result, trying to shove wet shoes or boots almost in the most fire. As a result, excessive dot overheating causes the skin to crack and warp shoes, boots "dry out"And synthetic coatings may simply melt.

By the way, I once had to travel to "skukozhilas" the fire and therefore lost their shape and reduce the size of the three shoes. And had to see my socks of artificial tissues are transformed into warm, running with fire crossbar synthetic jet and drops. The criterion for drying shoes should recognize surface heating shoe, which should not exceed 40—45° C. That is, when the fingers touching the skin should not feel the heat.
