The household towel is a truly wondrous thing. In addition to drying your hair and skin, they make fetching novelty turbans and play an integral part in the delivery of newborn babies (we saw it in a movie once). However, all this is small potatoes compared to the towel’s true calling in life -- as saviour to broken Xbox 360s the world over.That’s right; with just two ordinary towels (or two extraordinary beach towels), it is possible to reverse the dreaded red-ring-of-death and nurse your X360 back to a healthy green glow. (Let’s see a flannelette do that). Instead of waiting up to a month for Uncle Bill to fix your console, you could be playing Halo 3 again in around 30 minutes.
