First time out of the package, rinse it a few times. Best to stow it wet when not in use. Have used these for years for drying vehicles in my detailing business and at home. They work perfect, leave behind no lint as towels do and are very long lasting. In addition, using The Absorber for soaping the vehicle removes more soil from the paint than does a brush or wash mitt, leaving the paint looking better - but don't reuse it to dry the vehicle, as you will likely never get all the soap out. I use an old, practically worn out Absorber for soaping the vehicles. Sometimes I use a wet Absorber in the close dryer when drying soft or running shoes after having washed them as it can remove scuff marks. But wash the shoes by hand as a washing machine can seriously damage them. The Absorber is also great for washing and drying virtually anything, whether indoors or out. And for it's many uses, the price isn't bad. I always keep a few around at home and at work.
This Thing Is AMAZING !!!
I was a little leery when I bought this because it seemed too good to be true. Well this thing is amazing!! It soaks up so much water before you need to wring it out it's unbelievable. I highly recommend this over anything else I have ever tried. Buy it - you will not be disappointed. Also, a big shout out to Walmart for offering great products at a great price and the shipping time is better than any other vendor I have ever ordered from.
I have only used it once. I bought it to replace an old chamois which was disintegrating. It works as well as the chamois did (when new). I used it after washing my car. Now how long it will last will be the real test. At most I wash my car about once every two weeks, so if it lasts a couple of years that will be a real bargain at the price it sells for.
Does what it is supposed to do
Excellent product to have. I will probably buy a few more. It dried my Silverado very nicely. Only had to ring it out about 3 times to dry my whole truck
works best if u rinse it out good first, then use it, after that it dry really good
This towel is excellent for drying my vehicle and after use, it can be put back in the container wet.
Super absorbent towel, works great. highly recommend.
I have used this product many times in the past. It absorbs liquids in an instant. Makes drying a washed car quick and easy. Great product.
Awesome drying performance
Really happy with this purchase, dries my SUV good.
It is super absorbent. 5 stars for absorbency. However. Do not use this product on your car if you care about the clearcoat being scratch free. It doesnt gouge, but there are fine scratches all over my paintjob. Better off with high quality microfiber for drying cars. FOR CARS: 1 STAR. However. For other purposes, this thing is really neat. Cooling properties for sports applications is one, it's like another product on the market that you put any temperature water on, wring and snap.. COOLING: 4 STARS OVERALL 3 STARS. While the product is really cool, I'm not sure it's for me. Not telling you not to buy one, just be cautious. Try using it on an inconspicuous spot first and see how you like the results.
Does The Job!!
How much can you say about a car drying product? It does the job as advertised--after it is wet and wrung out, it works very efficiently at drying a car, Also, the Walmart price for this drying towel is the best price anywhere--I know--I've shopped everywhere before making this purchase. Overall, I believe this to be the best value in car drying products--far cheaper than a genuine chamois at less than half the price--and it will last as long or longer than any other drying product on the market--I know, I've owned them all.
Great for trucks
I had the smaller version of this and used it for about 5 years before I finally wore it out. Went to Walmart looking for the same thing, and much to my surprise I found this XL version! Went right from the store to the pressure wash station and tried it out. Guess what, it dries my truck just like it is supposed to, glad to have found this XL size here, did not even know they made it.
GREAT PRODUCT !
I would say that I have had the Absorber for twenty plus years and it still works , has never ripped and I have washed it in the washing machine several times over the years. I highly recommend this product for anyone who likes to take good care of their car and keep it very clean. Prior to using the Absorber I always bought regular leather shammy cloths but they don't last anywhere near as long as this item has and they are much more expensive. I have no idea how many more years I will get out of the Absorber that I have but I don't see any need to replace it yet . The way I figure it , it has payed for itself in longevity . I like many was skeptical of buying this instead of a real shammy but where leather gets stiff and tears , this cloth remains soft and very absorbent.
I'm a believer!
Fifteen years ago I was skeptical when I purchased my first Absorber. After 15 years of use mine is finally worn enough I feel the need to replace it. The Absorber works great! It meets all the promises it makes, and I am going to Wal-Mart today, and I will buy a new one. I will keep the old one around for super-dirty messes, such as soda spills in the kitchen. I recommend this to anyone.
Wow! This really soaks up A LOT!
I am so grateful for the other 400+ reviewers who wrote their experience with this product with accuracy because I can now join the team. This product works! I have used this towel to clean up a bathroom flooded with water with ease. It was just five soak-and-twist times to dry up the space. I have washed and dried my car with this towel. Easy. All I did was wet the towel with warm water after opening package for the first time and then twist to dry per instructions. I can store this in the plastic container with no problems. Also, I air dried the towel and it became stiff, so I wet it with warm water and then twist it dry and it was back in action as if nothing happened. I love this product.
I've owned one for over ten years and it has always worked well for me. I even use it on the interior windows. Just rinse it out often and keep it moist. I had to replace mine recently after it was stolen from my car. Didn't hesitate to but another one.
Picks up water very well
I had no trouble with it works very well
Finally Had to Replace it after 3 years!
Honestly, one of the best purchases I've made. Works so well, today I had to finally replace my second one. The first one lasted 2 years and this last one lasted 3 years. I'm hoping I can make this new one last even longer!
Awesome multi-use item
This is the best water absorbent you could have. Not only is it great for vehicles, but wonderful for drying thick coated dogs after swimming or bathes. I also use one to wrap my own wet hair out of the shower. Makes blow drying so much faster.
Absorber used in crafting
On the recommendation of a crafting/rubber stamping blog, I used a wet absorber to clean ink off of rubber stamping. It works great. While the ink does stain the absorber, it does not effect the usefulness of the product.
