Where's the link to the thousand uses for fabric sheets. You think somebody actually used one in a drier lately? Silly guy, must live in a very sheltered building.
Oh, moisture can set off sensors. Years ago I was mudlogging off shore in Utah. (Amoco, Parker Drlg rig on 1/4 acre of floating barges welded together on the north side of Great Salt Lake. Oil in every well.) Had H2S poison gas every well at about 140 feet when we were pushing drill collars through the old dead fish in the shallow mud. We maintained the poison gas detectors along with the hot wire chromatograph. About every day the detectors would go off, frequently when they weren't even drilling. Found a roughneck washing down the rig (and the detectors) with water....another story, I was driving into Salt Lake to get the wet H2S detector repaired before they spudded the next well, figured out with the limited time before spud I needed to go straight east over the railroad causeway instead of going north around Promontory Point, Thiokol rocket testing, Honeyville; risking running into a train coming west. Part of the stretch you are driving on the tracks itself. Got across the causeway to dry land, found a locked gate, dang! Miracle, somebody came along almost immediately and opened the gate....got the detector back to the rig for the poison gas on the next well, roughnecks washing down the rig again...
