Sweaty Hands when practicing

  1. Hey People,

    One problem, I'm getting sweaty hands whenever practicing with cards. The moisture will obviously effect the deck of cards which isn't too good. They don't sweat loads but you can feel they do sweat, and I can see changes on each deck after practicing.

    Any tips on how to resolve this problem of sweaty hands??
     
  2. Baby powder.
     
  3. cool cool. but doesnt that just make them soft, I need them to be bone dry as well if you get me?
     
  4. No. Baby powder's main purpose is to absorb moisture from skin.
     
  5. right cool, i'll get some - thanks alot man... DO you put it on every morning?

    When abouts do you use it
     
  6. Naw. I just put it on as I need it. Depending on the humidity, it last on average like an hour or two - but you can probably get more.
     
  7. Costco sells bricks of red and blue bicycle decks for $12.99 That comes out to $1.08 a pack. These are the good ones, the Rider Backs. That way you don't have to worry about trashing your practice decks, because they are so cheap.

    You can use your Guardian deck or whatever when performing.
     
  8. I would just recommend washing your hands before practicing (cold water) then drying up your hands. Not only will it get the sweat off its also hygienic :D
     
  9. ahh yes, however will it prevent the sweat? Thats my main problem, when flourishing my hands just sweat lol!!

    :)
     
  10. I have said this in may posts before but I guess I will repost it again for the 10th time....ha ha.

    Hand Sanitizer will work wonders. It has a little bit of alcohol in it which dries the hands. Purel and many other brands will work perfectly.

    Just apply some to your hands....rub them together...let you hands air dry for a minute and your are good to go for at least a half hour. Then apply more if you need to.

    Hope that helps ya.
