Product Description

Use this drying cloth instead of a sponge, towel, chamois or paper product. It is an amazing absorber that will slurp up ridiculous amounts of moisture in order to leave surfaces totally dry, but also free of any streaks, spots or lint. The silky smooth texture, and soft, squishy feel make it both comfortable to hold, and incredibly effective to use. As you wipe down a surface, it will lift and absorb any grime while it acts like a vacuum to suck up all of the moisture. There is never any risk of scratching, and since it is not a regular fabric, you never have to worry about lint either. These drying towels were designed for use in auto detailing, but they have many standard cleaning applications too. You will get a showroom shine on vehicle surfaces, but it will also work great for drying surfaces while boating, wiping down counters, drying spills, defrosting the freezer and more. It is similar to a super shammy because they are both extremely absorbent, but the material on this one is much different. It won't be quite as versatile as the super shammy, but for drying surfaces quickly while leaving them free of spots and streaks, it is hard to beat.

This PVA shammy has the look and feel of a traditional leather chamois, but it is far more absorbent, and way less expensive. When compared to a traditional chamois for performance, this one will be softer to the touch, easier to use, and faster with the actual drying. Thanks to the PVA material, it will be able to pick up grit and fine particles as you wipe, but it won't hold them in the cloth to scratch your car with subsequent uses like leather versions do. Instead, it will lift them off the surface and hold them until you rinse the cloth clean, at which time, they will wash off with ease. It is so soft and smooth that you will never have to worry about any surface it touches because there is no possibility of scratches or marks. When you dry a surface, it will do the job quickly, and it will leave the area spot free, and without any streaking. You won't have to go over the are several times to get the job done right either. A single pas will eliminate all moisture from the surface you are drying.

What Is It Made Of?
This drying cloth is made from a highly absorbent synthetic material known as Polyvinyl Alcohol, or PVA. It is essentially a giant, flat sponge, which is why it can dry so well. PVA is designed to mimic the composition of a natural sea sponge, but do so with higher efficiency in order to make it a better absorber. The cell structure is more uniform and connected in order to allow this drying cloth to soak up amazing amounts of moisture. In order to make this particular cloth more durable, a mesh support structure is imbedded in the PVA material. It is completely surrounded by the silky smooth, PVA so it does not add any risk of scratches, but it does make the cloth incredibly tough and long lasting due to the added support. Thanks to this effective and resilient material, this drying cloth is also resistant to chemicals, and unaffected by grease and oil. You can machine wash it if it gets dirty in order to use it over and over again, and it will last for years without needing replacement.

How To Use It
This PVA Drying Cloth will absorb nearly 20 times its weight in water. When wet, it becomes soft, squishy, and super flexible. When dry, it becomes very stiff and rigid. For this reason, many people like to store them damp, in some sort of resealable container or bag. Drying out does not ruin the functionality in any way though, so you can store it wet or dry. If it does get hard, you only need to wet it in order to make it soft again. Just let it soak for a minute and it will start feeling just like it did when you first got it.

There is no real trick to using it because when it touches moisture, it soaks it up. Just place the towel over any wet area to dry it quickly and easily. For counters, simply wipe in a single direction to remove all moisture as you move. If you are pulling a spill out of carpeting, lay the cloth over the wet area and then press down to initiate the absorption. Liquid will lift out of the fibers and become locked into this sponge-like cloth. For vehicle surfaces like the hood of your car, spread the cloth out all the way to give yourself maximum surface area. Once spread flat, just pull it towards you slowly, and let the cloth do the work. It will act like a vacuum to dry the hood completely, and leave it without any spots or streaks. For other areas of your vehicle, or different drying tasks, you may want to fold it in half or quarters, in order to give you a better size to work with. On the side of your car, just wipe with deliberate motions to dry any part. Because this cloth is so soft an flexible, you will be able to get into every small space in order to leave the surface looking perfect. It gives you the same sort of removal ability as a blade or squeegee might, but it is far more versatile, and more able to do the whole job.

Treat your vehicle right, and make detailing easy. This cloth takes all of the annoyance out of washing your car because it makes it easy to achieve a showroom finish. You can quickly dry all surfaces, and because no moisture will remain, you never have to worry about spots afterward. Don't just save it for your car though. This amazing tool can help you all over the house because it can quickly dry spills anywhere, or allow you to wipe down counters and other areas more efficiently. If something is leaking, dripping or melting, just place this cloth in the path, and no moisture will get by. Due to the incredible absorption power it gives, you will be able to dry large areas without stopping or going to get a new towel. It is designed to be used wet, so a little water is not going to stop it from working. Once it is fully saturated, just wring it out, be amazed by the water it releases, and keep on going.

Care Instructions
This cloth is totally machine washable, but you never want to place it in the dryer. Wash by hand, or throw it in the machine to clean it, and then air dry to finish. Never wash with fabric softener because that will reduce ability over time. When brand new, you will want to wash before your first use, and for best results, you will want to wash it after every use. Because it is a sponge, it will collect and absorb things as you use it. This stuff is all easily washed out, but if you do not, it could result in problems. It will always be most effective when it is as clean as possible.The cloth can be stored wet or dry. It is anti mildew agents built into it, so if clean, it can be stored damp without worry. Just wring it out, and place it in a sealed container or bag, and it will be soft and ready to go at all times. If you store it dry, it will become stiff and rigid. This does not harm the cloth or affect the life span, but it will require you to moisten it prior to using it. Once wet, it will get all soft and smooth again. You can use this cloth in a single large layer, folded up to form a thicker pad, or sort of bunched in your hand. Try all three techniques to determine which is best for you.

PVA Drying Cloth - Far more absorbent than any standard towel or cloth. Will soak up liquid like a vacuum thanks to the sponge-like material. Has the look and feel of a traditional leather chamois, but is far more absorbent.Order Yours Today!

PVC drying cloth
This is a great product ! I'm glad I purchased it. I use it on glass, granite counter tops and more. I only have one issue, the machine that cuts the product damaged one side. It still works but is coming apart on the one side. I still give it a 5 star !!! I will purchase it again.

3 Question(s) So Far...
Have a question about this stuff? Ask Now.
For soaking up water, how is this different than your 20x27 inch commercial grade "Large Super Shammy"? Which soaks up more water?, say for wiping down a shower.
Asked by:  on 2/22/2014
Either would be good for the job, and it will really come down to preference. Absorbency will be pretty similar, but this cloth is thinner, smoother, and more clingy in comparison. It also dries completely hard, so it may be the more sanitary option if you intend to leave it in the stall. People often use the PVA sponge for showers because it is a thick, compact block, that will suck up moisture and squeegee the surface all at once. This cloth is made from the same material, and it does the same thing when you drag it or wipe, but it covers a larger surface area. This may be advantageous or annoying depending upon who you are.

HI. since the PVA cloth does not scratch. what about when using it while dry and hard?
Asked by:  on 10/13/2013
They are meant to be used wet only. When dry, it is almost like cardboard, and would not work well. You might need to worry about scratching when dry, but after it absorbs moisture, it will be super soft and scratch-free.
