Depends on how fast it will dry out. Here in AZ, maybe every 2-3 minutes. The towel from my morning shower will dry out in 20 minutes.

Not real practical.

Wretched excess is just barely enough.

hamguy is probably right depending on where you are located and for how long you are staying. While traveling down the road you typically don't worry about it. When you camp for the night you may have trouble with static charge. In most locations the water spray mist will usually work for several hours and by that time I am ready for bed. If you are camped for several days then the spray mist is probably not very practical. Then you will need a humidifier to put moisture in the air to stop the static charge from collecting. We don't have room to carry a humidifier with all the other junk we carry so we use the spray mist method. Works most of the time for us.

Scotchguard helps. We used to use it to keep the secretaries with heaters under their desks (in a 75 degree air conditioned office) from frying the electronics . . . phones, keyboards, etc.
