Brush drying competition

#24
24 hours, disappointed, with only 1,26g water left after initial 12 hours last night I was sure boar would be bone dry and ready for a new shave this morning but no, still got 0,72g left, meaning only about half a gram difference in the last 12 hours :-( (need to retest this brush)

This is why I think air breeze helps. It regulates the humidity around the knot to be at room condition instead the water vapor creating a small microclimate.

That link is incorrect as it was always taught, at least here, that mold is a fungus and you mould bullets, metal, soap, etc. Verbiage with the "u". It is only recently that grammarists have surrendered to the idiots now running PC education and allowed ignorance to thrive by allowing people to spell however they "feel" thereby moulding idiots.

Any (non-US) links to substantiate that claim? I'll stick with "mould" until then.
Here's Wikipedia:

56 hours, Zenith 24 mm boar is finally dry, then in true forum style to complicate things I gave it an hour in the sun, result was an extra dry brush, but back on my desk it seemed to draw moisture from the air because after an hour scale showed a step back from extra dry to dry. Enough is enough, back to shaving again :)

That's very interesting. I never thought about my boar brushes soaking water from the humid bathroom air in their bristles. They probably do. I remember a chap keeping his large brush collection in his bedroom instead of the bathroom. Now I wonder if this was his reasoning behind it.
