Need to Dry Out Important Papers that Got Wet?

After our home flooded, I pressed our air hockey table into action. I put old towels on top of it and with the air blowing through all those little holes beneath, I could press things flat and dry them at the same time... less wrinkling and molding that way. I did still move the papers around to different locations on the table so the towel did not get too wet in one spot. Worked rather well. More advice I hope you never need.

    I hope the moisture doesn't damage the table!

    I will forever look at air hockey tables in a different light now! What a great idea! Might be a great sweater dryer too for those sweaters that they say, "Dry flat" have you ever noticed how long they can stay wet when laying flat?
