I need one!

I've got some "supershammies" made from super absorbant rayon, but they're shredding AND shedding:(

I use the Absorber. https://www.cleantools.net/WebSite/inner.aspx?pg=../productDesc.aspx?pid=3&desc=../website/htm/the_absorber.htm
They work really well and hold up great. Should be able to find them at the local auto parts place or Wally World.

I second the Absorber. I use it on four vehicles and the boat. It's held up much better than any other chamois that I've ever used.

I use the Absorber.

Same here, they work really well and last a really long time (one of mine has to be at least 5 years old). And I like that you just roll em up, put them back in their tube, and throw back in the boat to store for next time.

Absorber. Throw it in the washing machine if it gets dirty after prolonged use, good as new.

my Hilton towels finally gave up after 13 years:cool:

and for some reason, I still have my towels from July 21st, 1984, although they don't mean anything to me anymore:cry:

I always carry towels for vehicle clean-up wherever we go and I always take the older ones and trade them in to houskeeping for some newer nice fluffy ones from the towel rack, if ya know what I mean. Big ones, for drying the vehicle finish, handtowels for door jambs and detailing and the washclothes for wheels, dash, wax and protectant application. I have some, 15+ years old, cause I can't turn in Holiday Inn towels to Best Western, so they untimately become oil change towels/rags.

I always wondered why the hotels felt that they needed a placard in the room telling me that any missing towels were going to be billed to my at $10 each. I always wondered "who in the hell would steal towels".

No I know.;)

oh man!!!!

just went and bought 2 Absorbers....
one pink for windows (inerior & exterior)
one yellow for exterior finish

amazing towels:headbang:


but, I noticed when I opened them, they have moisture in the cellophane wrapper...
do I store the towels in the tube DRY or DAMP?
no instructions for that:(

Just wring them out good and put them in the tube. So I guess that means damp. If you let them dry completely they get as stiff as cardboard.

They are preconditioned, damp and ready to use, but back in the day, they had to be soaked in a bucket of water for several days before you could even use them for the 1st time.:)

Never store dry! They will get ruined that way! Just ring the excess water out and then stick that bugger in that narrow tube!
