Until I touched the top step before I went to bed 7 hours later. Tacky. Sticky. Gummy. Not good descriptors for stairs. Still not good the next morning, either.
The dehumidifier we parked at the top of the steps has been running all day. With any luck, it will suck those descriptors right up. I wonder if it could suck the water out of the wet load of laundry stuck in the washer?
Update: Stairs finally dried (mostly) by Sunday night. That's 72 hours later... I removed all the plastic covers from the TV, console and furniture...and moved all the small furniture pieces back down. Nope, no footprints on the steps. And no mold on the wet clothes in the washer. Phew!
