    My bottle exploded in my bag foday andny textbook is soaked and stinks of it. I used a hairdryer earlier and its dried some partsof it.
    I am going to leave it over night to see what happens.

    Can anyone give me any advice on how long it would to dry and if the blackcurrent juice smell will stay. Also, is there a chance of mould growing on it?

    Realitvely little chance of mould if you keep it dry from now on, could take until friday morning to dry out properly. Pages mught be sticky or brittle from now on though. Don't know about the smell

    Smell will likely remain if you sniff closely. But hopefully you don't go around sniffing books. Anything spilt will soak into the pages. As mentioned pages will likely be stuck together. You can attempt to leave the book out in the sun to draw out moisture although the pages may also yellow if left too long.

    I recommend keeping your drink and books separate in the bag. Either use a plastic folder to protect your books or a bag to isolate your drink.

    Well I think our usual few days of summer started this week. Not that I'd know being stuck inside working.

    Funny you should say that. I live in the South but one of the outlying villages near me apparently got snow the other week.

    Not sure if I should be jealous or thankful. Snow would be cool but I don't want to deal with having snow. Especially at 6am when you have to go wipe it all off the car :/
