I've been using these for years and I haven't found a better one yet. Even Sham-Wow falls short in some areas.
Absorber Uses: In the shower, wipe down tiles and glass quickly, dry your hair, wipe off water from your bod. In the garage, 'shammy' your wet car. In the yard, wipe dry wet lawn furniture. In the house, wipe clean any surface, damp-wipe dirty screens, dry Fido after a bath (Sham-Wow works a bit better for this). On the lake, keep one in your kayak/boat to wipe dry after use. To maintain, just wash it in the washer. Never develops a sour odor. Great product. This is my 'Magic Towel'!
BTW, Sham-Wow works okay for the above, but does not dry surfaces without streaking. Also, you must maintain it more, by not washing it with softeners. Sham-Wow excels at picking up (absorbing) liquids from carpet or fabrics. The Absorber isn't made for this type of chore.

I've been using absorbers for longer than I can remember. I never dry my car or motorcycles with anything else. They don't damage the finish, soak up tons more water than towels or other chamoise, and actually help you stay streak free when drying. This is by far the best drying tool available anywhere. Swimmers use them, car cleaners use them, any time you have liquid that needs to be picked up... this is it. You can even through them in the dishwasher or washing machine when they get dirty. One of the best inventions EVER!

To be honest, I grabbed one of these in a hurry and expected something different, but I'm amazed at how well it works. At first the odd wetness was a challenge to get used to, and it never feels right, but it really works. Just rinse with hot water before first use and store it damp in the tube when done. If you forget to do the whole damp tube thing worry not, as it'll just dry as a dry stiff board of a rag. Add water, ring out, and store in the tube.

As far as using the Absorber, it's very absorbent and keeps soaking up more water. Wring it out every now and then, and it's back to its rubbery uber absorbing self. When done, wring it out again and store in the tube, which is great for hasty winter car washes, as you can throw the tube back in your trunk or whatever for the next go round. Does it dry a car perfectly? It gets damn close, but I've gotten slightly better results with other types of towels (though I need multiple ones to beat the Absorber), but then I have many wet rags to deal with (a pain in the winter, especially if you wash away from home).

Absorber is a great travel towel. Two of my summer trips involve very humid weather the whole week. No hope of drying a towel. The absorber is the perfect solution. It doesn't have to be dry before it is ready to absorb tons of water again.
Tip: I did find that it smells much better when you leave it to air dry between uses. Storing it damply in the container had previously led to a very stinky towel halfway through the week. No problems when it air dried.
I purchased the small size so it will fit right in my toiletry bag. It works just fine. However, if you want to try to tie up your hair with the absorber, you might want a larger size.
My only complaint is that I was sent a white (maybe cream) colored absorber. That is not a good idea if you care about the appearance of your "towel." The white looks grungy after only a few uses. Our colored versions look fine.

Great product.

I'm impressed with the volume which this absorbent material soaks up. I use it to wipe down my jetski after each usage. It removes water from nearly all hard-to-reach places and leaves the craft virtually dry. Conventional towels or other rags would take 2-3 wipings, and this thing seems to act like a squeegee, except it doesn't push the water, it soaks it up.

I am giving this product 4 stars in hopes that it will be 5 (let's see how it stands up over time) in a few months.

For the cost of this item, which is similar to the cost of a full sized Absorber, you'll be better served purchasing the full sized version and then cutting it in half.

I wholeheartedly recommend Absorber chamois and use them for everything from drying the car/pets/people. If you have trouble getting your hair dry with a towel, then this is the item for you. If you are like me and don't trust hotel towels (or don't wish to make an unnecessary laundry load for those with whom you are staying), then this item is for you. It will have you drier and in less time than a towel and takes up little space in your luggage. You can even let it dry out, flat, so that it'll be a cinch to pack (just pour water on it to reactivate).

As stated above, while I recommend the overall product, I feel that money would be better spent of the full sized version cut down to the size you need.

This was a life saver at Disney World! There was torrential downpours during our trip and the Absorber was amazing at drying everything off. My husband thought it was an unnecessary purchase for our trip BUT when he got soaked I had him use it to dry his pants. He couldn't believe how well it worked. It is also amazing at absorbing water from hair.

We purchased this Chamois fifteen years ago to dry our boat after washing it. We recently bought another to dry the clear glass door on our shower stall in order to keep it spot free. It works beautifully and is far superior to the ShamWow we originally used.
