Excellent towel. Absorbs a great deal of water Its large size allows use as 1 large blotter to lay down on a hood, roof, or trunk lid avoiding the need to wipe And when folded twice you get 4 good sized surfaces also. I dried my entire car (VW Eos) and barely needed to wring it out. ...................... After writing the review above I washed the towel in with my other microfiber cloths & wash mit. Exactly as I have been washing them with great results. 1 hour soak in hot water with Ecos pH neutral detergent. Then wash on gentle cycle in the same water & rinse in warm water. Air dry in the dryer WITHOUT HEAT No fabric softener anywhere in the process. This towel came out of the dryer with multiple loose threads & loops. Not good at all However I like this towel's performance so much that I am going to request a replacement as opposed to a refund.
