Popular with groomers. They're super absorbent because this specially designed synthetic chamois absorbs 15 times its weight in water. Thick, synthetic Chamois Towels absorb more water than traditional terry cloth towels. Dramatically cuts drying time by "drinking up" water from wet coats after bathing.. Machine washable to use over and over again. Each towel is 20" X 27". Great for mopping up spills from floors and countertops or for quick cleanups around the shop.
