Product Description

Color: Natural

The Absorber is not a leather chamois, nor is it a terry cloth towel. However it could be one of the best drying tools you'll ever discover. The Absorber is made of a unique material called PVA (Poly Vinyl Alcohol). The secret of the Absorber's power is it's amazing uniform, sponge-like pore structure. This design enhances capillary action and gives the Absorber it’s super drying ability. Colors may vary.

My wife was extremely pleased to find that this item is Made in Japan--both because she takes it as a sign of quality and because she's Made in Japan herself.

We're also familiar with this kind of product in Japan, where it's called a "gum towel."

I bought two actually, one for her and one for me to use on my bicycles--thinking it would be something like a super absorbant chamois rather than a gum towel. It's certainly super absorbant, but doesn't have the chamois quality I would need to, say, polish my bike frames. That is to say it's more sticky than soft, more like a piece of foam rubber or neoprene than a cloth.

So if I just hosed down the bike while cleaning and wanted to get on with the next steps of polishing and relubing, this towel is a great way to dry the bike when it's neither hot nor dry enough of a day for the bike to dry out on it's own in a fair amount of time.

It really draws the water out too, from every knook and cranny, so no need to use DW-40 before lubing my nice clean parts.

My wife uses ours for everything from picking up spills to quickly drying wet clothing that can't go in the dryer. If you wash a sweater for example, it's best to roll it up in the Absorber before laying it out to dry, as this will cut your drying time to at least half and make it less of a hazard that the sweater will get out of shape.

We use my far more grungy one as you might use a wet vac. It actually does a better job than a wet vac though.

Add that I've used several gum towels in Japan, mostly for swimming, and this is by far the thickest one I've used--therefore more absorbant. And at 27" x 17" it's big enough to be used as a bath towel without having to ring it out over and over again.

Color: Blue
Pros:
- works better than chamois in absorbing water.
- does not produce streaks when drying cars - Spot free!
- I cut it to half and quarter sizes - makes it great for the kitchen tops, sink and bathroom
- works great for kitchen spills
- available almost everywhere
- cheaper than chamois

Cons:
-You have to store it moist in the canister or it will dry stiff as a cardboard. (Dip it on water and it is good to go again).
-Storing it moist promotes growth of bacteria and micro-organism. Forget about using it on your body as a towel or drying your plates, pots and utensils.

First off, for my people that hate reading, THIS IS THE CLOSEST THING TO A REAL CHAMOIS, if you don't want to get the real thing, but want something that actually does what a chamois does, BUY THIS. Now back to my blurb.
-----
After watching the silly "ShamWow" infomercial once or twice I developed the desire to purchase a chamois like product. My first attempt was with the previously mentioned "--Wow" which really left a lot to be desired. Quite frankly, it was crap! Once I was burned by the hype, I figured I'd try a different approach, I'd do some research. (novel idea) Upon hitting up Amazon I found that this one always got high reviews and people seemed to be saying, "yep, it's the one!". So I bought it and I haven't been disappointed. It works like a chamois, period. Get it a little damp, use it to suck up liquids, squeeze, repeat. It gets the job done.

If you want something that acts exactly like a REAL lambskin chamois that's not a REAL lambskin chamois, this is the product for you. Just buy it and be happy.

Other than drying your car, this cloth has many other uses. It can be used on countertops, on your dog after a bath or as a bath towel in itself.

I remember swim team kids having chamois in Korea that they used to dry off with and this cloth does an excellent job of that. The pool, the beach or as a sweat rag, this chamois can handle anything. I take mine whenever I travel and use it as a bath towel and I never have to worry about how sanitary towels are.

When it gets too dirty, all you have to do is throw it in the washing machine and all the dirt gets cleaned off. Remembering to store it wet and in its' tube goes a long way toward having it ready to use.

One more thing, no matter what it says, it can indeed get moldy. No matter what, DO NOT store this in a dark place. First the smell arrives, then the spots and before you know it, you have an absorber that has mildew damage and while it still works, it wont last as long.

Overall, this is a great product and I will continue to buy them til they are no longer in production.

These will dry your car with no streaks and you can use it over and over and throw it in the washer. Best of all you can wring it as you dry your car so it becomes bone dry again. Great for windows where streaks usually show up, but not after "the absorber."

I've used one of these for over five years and it still works great! It is rare when you can find a product that does what is says and lasts as long as this one does. Just remember to put it away in its container and roll it up damp. Amazing!

At my job we transport all levels of VIP and this calls for clean, detailed vehicles at all time. We count on these to help keep our vehicles clean and dry. I bought my first ine in 1992 and used it almost weekly for 8 years. They're grest for houshold spills too. On top of that, you can just throw it in the washing machine if it get's dirty. They are great to have and the make great gifts.
