    Consuming alcohol via an enema bag gets you drunk twice as fast for a fraction of the price.

    True. I have "saved" many pairs of running shoes, by doing this.

    Also, it helps to stuff them with newspaper or telephone book paper.

    Tried it yesterday and it was a success. Screw paying $4-5 or a small tube of shaving cream.

    I actually wash my towels first then leave a couple in the dryer while I dry the rest of my laundry, it really works...

    I leave a towel in the dryer and if I am running late and need wrinkles out of a shirt I spray water on that towel and run the shirt in the dryer with that towel for a few minutes and it comes out wrinkle free.... they say you can hang your shirt in the bathroom while you shower and get wrinkles out but it's never worked for me....

    It can't work that well. The only way it could speed drying time is by absorbing water from the other towels thus increasing the surface area(of the water) allowing the water to be removed from the system faster. This of course means the dry towel must absorb water faster from the wet towel than it would have otherwise been removed, which does make sense but I don't see how it could cut the drying time that much.
