The Absorber PVA Drying Towel (27" x 17")

Part No. 51149 Warranty  
The Absorber Synthetic Drying Towel

The Absorber PVA Drying Towel has been one of those quick drying towels you can depend on. Its super drying ability can handle anything from cars to boats, even animals. So what's the secret behind this chamois? It's basically the sponge-like structure throughout the product that enhances capillary action. Not only does it work fast, but it also leaves a streak free finish behind, unlike some quick drying towels that leave a scratch or two.

Here are the benefits of the absorber synthetic drying towel:
  • PVA drying skin for use anywhere you would use a towel, chamois or sponge
  • Resistant to most chemicals and unharmed by grease and oil
  • Hundreds of drying uses for better results
  • Car care products that's tough and lint-less for lasting performance
  • Machine-washable for added convenience
The absorber synthetic drying towel can be used in so many different ways. You can lay it flat on the surface and pull it across when cleaning the hood, trunk or car top. Or, you can fold this chamois to dry the side panels, as well as the nook and crannies of your vehicle. Let the Absorber PVA Drying Towel do all the work by sucking everything up (we mean water).

With a mesh scrim for added durability and strength, the Absorber PVA Drying Towel makes it safe for all paint finishes and won't remove wax from your car as you dry it. Plus, it's very easy to clean. So, if you're looking for quick drying tools, make it an absorber!

CleanTools, Inc., is a well-established company that takes pride in researching and developing extraordinary car care products. Products such as the Absorber which when introduced established a paradigm shift in the Automotive and Aftermarket drying industry.

      Comments about The Absorber PVA Drying Towel (27" x 17"):

      I purchased my absorber from a vendor at a PT Cruiser meet in Niagara Falls in 2002. I use it on both my cars everyday. I've owned it for 12 years and as long as its moist and kept in its original container, it will last me many more years. I love it.

        This towel is nice and large letting you dry a large area between wring-outs. It is super thirsty and does a great job. My Prius was left dry and spotless.

                      This is the second one I have purchased, I still have the first one after 5 years and a lot of washes. It can be a little difficult to keep clean but reward is worth the risk. Just make sure you store it back in the holder damp, I have never had a mold issue.

                      I have mixed feelings about this product. I may be biased I don't like wet stuff being stored.

                      It's hard to clean the product after usage. Maybe next time I would try a washing machine.
