I have been trying to imagine a type of clothing that is easier to wash.

I have been trying to imagine a type of clothing that is easier to wash.

Normal clothing is designed to be comfortable and thermally efficient and it mimics traditional clothing that was woven by hand out of animal or plant fibers.

Fibrous clothing has a high ratio of surface area to volume so it can hold more sebum (the sticky skin oil that bacteria eats and farts smell creating body odor.

Fibrous clothing takes longer to dry because it can absorb so much water onto it's surface area

so I was thinking of some kind of hardshell flexible fabric which was designed not to stick well to sebum. This nonstick property means less soap and water is necessary to clean it.

the not sticking well is hard to do because it would have to be an oil-phobic material.

ideally you would.be able to take this fabric and just hose it off with water and all of the sebum and dead skin and hair would just roll right off

It would be quicker to dry because it would have less surface area and would ideally be hydrophobic

    what are you doing?

    why do you write like this?

    who does this?

    your idea is shit.

    you're stupid.

    and you're going to look like a fag prancing around wrapped in a mylar blanket with a zipper on the ass.

    Congratulations, you have "invented" latex. Enjoy being horribly sweaty all the time.

      Latex is not a comfortable enough or thermally efficient enough fabric and I am not sure if it is even easy to clean

        It's very easy to clean, you just wipe it down. The features that make fabrics comfortable to wear are what make them hard to wash.

        Normal people don't consider the hour their clothes spend in the washing machine, or the hour they spend drying, as any real kind of issue. People buy more than one outfit, so they don't sit around naked all day waiting for their one set of clothes to finish washing.

          nobody sits around in front of the washer and dryer waiting for them to finish.

          OP is an idiot.

            Well, an entire washing machine enthusiasts community exists.
            Collectors have rooms filled with machines, inviting other enthusiasts, and yes, doing laundry with them while talking about spin cycles.

            this is just the kind of retarded idea to be posted on PrepHole. Take a shower you smelly fuck. It's not your clothes, it's you.

            stop being poor.

            nobodys confirmed.

            non poors don't stand in front of their washer and dryer, and also wouldn't be able to afford OP's bullshit clothes.

        It's not"fabric" at all.
        Properly formulated rubber is a highly efficient insulator that is so efficient that it's used in garments like wetsuits and survival suits that protect against hypothermia.
        That superior insulating quality is a huge part of why its rarely used in garments that need to allow some body heat to escape to stay comfortable.

        People are comfortable wearing it, and over in

        [...]

        people have confirmed they wear it for 24h+ at a time. As for thermal properties, you can add a layer of closed cell expanded polyurethane (PU) between an inner and outer latex layer (or PU instead of latex).

        Years ago over on PrepHole, one anon wanted to make a banesuit. I never heard how that project went

    Woolly jumpers dry almost as soon as you take them out of the washer.

    Slightly finer wool already do 90% of what you want, except it can still be water saturated even if its hydrophobic. And it has enough Lipophobicity to not have the scent problems a lot of synthetic fibers have.
    Wool do 99% of what you want, it just have to be turned into a fabric which is thin and layered enough to not allow major water saturation.

    The key problem is that IF you have fibers, the fibers can store water from mechanical space.
    But if you have something like latex... then there is no fibers to store anything, but its a complete PITA because no fibers means its air tight, which carries its own set of problems.

    Just wear wool clothing. Anything else is a scam created by the cotton and washing machine industries. Airing out anti-microbial fibers overnight cleans it enough to where any dirt or skin cells leftover just needs to be shaken off. I've been wearing the same set of wool thermals for 3 years now and have never failed the smell test

    It seems like the best way to do this is to wear a thin wool shirt and if it gets cold just keep adding on an additional wool shirt.

    Each individual shirt will dry quickly but when worn together they act like a much more fibrous insulator
