Machine wash (with no laundry detergent) and tumble dry separately is the absolute best way to wash you Rapid Dry Towels.
Don’t use bleach, iron, or use fabric softener (incl. dryer sheets). You don't need to anyway. It's best to keep microfiber and regular fabrics separate when you wash/dry. Microfiber won't create lint. But the lint from regular fabrics could get into the microfiber weave - and then it won't be the 100% scratch free microfiber that you are after.

It's 100% microfiber (with a unique special blend).
It's a special weave that we found to be the best in testing. Some people thought we were crazy using such a high quality fabric. But that is the point of Rapid Dry Towels...

Answer - a lot quicker than without.

We dry Porsche 911s in 90 seconds but a regular car will be 3 minutes or so.

500+ machine washes and tumble dries. It really is a great fabric. Honestly.

No - it's definitely different than the wash cloth sized chamois that you pick up at the auto repair shop.

But you will find a new drying rhythm when you use it for the first time.

We use the full size for the roof, hood etc and fold it for the more intricate areas.

You can always put some of it over your shoulder too.

Any questions or suggestions - fire away at makemefaster@rapiddrytowels.com.

You betcha. It will be lightening quick at that too. See above if your boat is called the USS or HMS Something though as you may need more than one.

We have customers that rave about their use on: people, shower glass, windows, dogs, horses, boats, planes, helicopters, jet skis. The fabric is incredibly absorbent and doesn’t streak so it lends itself to almost any purpose that you could need a piece of fabric for!
