Recently I was in the Trinidad rainforest during its rainy season. I sweat easily and can completely drench my clothing in very little time, especially if it’s hot or if I push myself hard while exercising or sightseeing.
I usually bring along detergent to wash things out in the sink and hang them to dry. However, I stayed in the mountains where a clothes dryer wasn’t available, and it was so humid the entire time that my clothes never dried; instead, they began to mildew after a day or two (I hung them in my room, which didn’t have the greatest airflow; perhaps things would have been different if I could have hung them outside).
How do people in humid climates launder their clothing? How do they dry them, or at least how do they avoid mildew?
