I do. First cut it in the size you want. I other words make it smaller. Then set out in the sun or set a dehumidifier by it. If it is really saturated it may take awhile. That does not bother me, I just choose what foam I have for what I may need. If I have a bunch of bricks, I will cut them into brick size and then dry them. Some stuff I don't care if the foam is wet. The only real bad deal about wet foam is you can't use a foam cutter. However, I rarely use those anyway. Hope that helps.
The folks at the hot tub store said they've never been able to get the center of the foam dry, so I was wondering about what sort of difference it makes. This helps! Thanks.
One more question: Do you need any special tricks to get paint to adhere to the foam..?
Well once again it depends on what I'm using it for. For example, I took (1) 8'x8' cover that was saturated. I cut it into 2 ft strips and then took the (4) strips that were 3" thick and glued them together with GREAT STUFF. That is the only thing that I have found that will work on bonding the foam at this size. Then I carved it to look like a stalagmite. Still wet in the middle but I don't care. The column I showed was made with covers cut into 1" thick pieces. I set the 1" piece out in the sun for about a week and away we went. Hope that helps. Also most hot tub dealers have big cover sales in the Spring and Winter. That would be the time to role in and pick up a bunch of foam.
