That was a good laugh..
I thought putting it in the back of the tee shirt drawer was funny.
You on the right track.
Don't keep them in plastic bags till they are very much dry.
Sorry if I alarmed you .

Cool



I think the reason it amused me, men think alike.
I sent my 25 year old nephew some $ for Christmas one time.. He thanked me an said I hid it in my sock in a drawer.LOL

Now how I dry mine is put them in a paper plate an spread them around. an put them on a sunny window sill to dry. If bagged too soon they mold.

Glad your having fun with them.
Its loads more fun when you get a batch in the mail.
