comment How to deal with wet feet?
"polyester socks for sleeping because it cannot absorb water": Polyester (the the partial exception of specially-woven polyesters) keeps the water on your feet (skin) instead of transporting it out. Wool is best for transporting moisture away from skin, not to mention maintaining comfortable temperature no matter your level of activity.

comment Washing clothes on long hikes
Not precisely an answer to the OP, but very important: wear wool! Besides regulating moisture and heat better than most other materials, wool is naturally antimicrobial and can potentially be worn for weeks without washing -- odor-free and comfortable.
