Try a little Gold Bond.

they were really neat, well insulated, etc, and, all folded down flat for moving and went right up..........
that'd be a neat way to go.......

I have a two questions about hexayurts though....
1. The seem pretty simple to erect, but what about taking them down. How hard is it to cut the tape? What tools do you use... a razor blade, scissors...? And what special care, if any, is required to make sure it is clean and usable for the next year?
2. I hear that they are great at keeping the dust and heat out, but what about noise. I actually enjoy sleeping to the ambient techo and playa sounds. Will I lose this in a hexayurt?
Thanks in advance and I'll see you in a hexayurt next year!

We talked about using battens from e Hobie Cat sail to diagonally stiffen some panels - would that be needed you think?
Did you anchor the yurt at all? What about flooring?
And one big question - when I see the pics of shiny hexayurts I always wonder whether the reflections off them would blind your neighbors. Doesn't the shiny nature of the hexayurt doom all around you to blindless, and your tented neighbors to them being kinda extra-cooked by the reflected light?
