It's a conspiracy! This nasty of all nasties was found in a reputable establishment. Unlike my other recent run in with a reusable roller towel hand dryer thingy, this one was found in an outdoor sporting goods store that we visit occasionally. At least the one from the antique store in the boonies was clean! This one was clearly well used. Let's just say it was another opportunity for me to test how well my clothes double as towels.
