    How I dry my shoes and socks

    Rigged this up at work this week.A paint curing lamp and some plywood Toasty warm and dry socks/shoes when it's time to head home. Notice the welding clamp/sock holder. Kinda stinky once it gets cookin', but not as bad as my spitty, salty facemask.

    Italian Steel would like to commission 7 of those for tanning purposes. That clamp looks like it could solve our inner thigh tanning problem.

    seems like a lot of stuff/electricity to dry some socks and shoes. I would just roll up a small electric heating pad to carry around with me.

    Shoes are size 11
    A heating pad?
    The point is that this heat lamp is something I use at work anyway, and is readily available.
    Anyways, I thought it was funny.
    I don't even know what to say about the inner thigh tanning prob, but at least someone was trying.
    Carry on.

    I think that is the coolest thing ever. How fast do your shoes dry?

    My method is I jam a ton of newspaper into them and close em up
    then I put them under my fridge or near a vent. I'll change the
    newspaper once or twice or if I need them dry faster I sit there
    with a hair dryer. I own this dryer just for drying my shoes
    not for drying hair.

    Whatever works. I have an old fashion radiator and can put my very damp swimming gear on top and have it dry overnight. I've also used it for shoes; but I use the residual heat after I turn off the steam valve. If there is any adhesive in your shoes, too much heat can make a mess. The IR lamp seems a kinder, gentler method.
