Title: rope washing
Post by: bennybrew on September 01, 2013, 12:06:21 pm
SHE and a friend went climbing yesterday in acadia and the rope ended up in the ocean a bit. i think the rope should be washed but it is supposed to be humid/rainy for the next few days. should the rope be washed immediately and allowed to dry very slowly or should i wait until it can dry well?

I'd do it sooner, rather than later...

Do you have AC? If not put a fan on it... it will dry fast enough to not mildew...
