They will often become pale and clamped.

I have a question too....If you wrap the cup in a towel, wouldn't you be getting traces of detergent in your tank when you float the cup to acclimate?

I wouldn't think so.....unless you use a LOT of strong detergent when you wash your towels I really don't think there should be any/much left on them once they're clean and dried and all that.
I have specific towels I use for my fish, but I wash them just like any other towels. I've wiped down the inside of tanks and patted dry decor after rinsing it with these towels(so it, you know, didn't drip all over the place when I moved it back to the tank)and never had any problems.

I have a special "fish towel" that I have for drying my hands before doing a water change or feeding. I just wash it in hot water with extra rinse. But yeah I guess I am pretty paranoid lol. XD

Oh I think I have like....three big towels, three or four medium towels, and probably a good six or so small towels I use to wipe things off during water changes/lay out when I'm doing things in the tanks do the water doesn't get all over our hardwood floor. xD I'll just use and hang them to dry a few times and then wash and dry them with the rest of my laundry every once in a while.

I totally know what you mean though. It can definitely be good to be safe rather then sorry.

I love how this topic went from traveling to towels, haha. I don't have any special ones for my fishies. Maybe I should?

I got a new betta on Tuesday and he endured the 2 hour drive home in the little cup that he came in. I had posted a thread asking about how to safely transport him too, lol. It was a spur of the moment thing.

My favorite thing to do cause of my new car is hold my bettas in my lap. I put the cup between me legs really close to me so there isn't any space on both sides of the cup, but only on 1. I then wrap the side tht has space with a jacket that's in my car.
