    lowe's and home depot brands do not soften when washed ONLY TYVEK does. don't waste your money on the knock-offs.
    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    Just go to a lumber yard and ask them if you can take some of theirs. Almost all lumber comes in Tyvek and most places throw it out.

    Lack of preparation on your part does not constitue an emergency on mine.

    DO NOT use fabric softener, according to reports it seems to break down the bonds between the fibers. I wouldn't even use detergent, maybe a small amount of something very mild.

    To "soften" tyvek I suggest stuffing it in the drier on no heat and throwing a few tennis balls in with it.
