Soaks up just about everything you throw it at!
I've been using natural chamois cloths for years to dry off my cars, due to their high absorbency. But they are expensive, not easy to work with, and don't last very long. I bought this synthetic chamois cloth based on its high rating, and now here I am leaving a five-star review myself.
When used properly, this product works better than natural chamois. It's noticeably more absorbent and easier to work with. But I stress, it needs to be used properly, like a natural chamois.
1. When you first take it out of the tube, drench it with water, then wring it out.
2. If your car is freshly waxed and water is beading on it, before you dry your car with the Absorber, use your hand/arm like a squeegee to quickly swipe excess water off the topsides of your car.
3. Move the Absorber along in relatively slow motion, allowing the water to soak into it. Wipe half of one topside surface, such as the roof or hood. Wring out the Absorber, then re-wipe the area to soak up the residual moisture. Repeat those two steps for the rest of your car. If you're getting streaks, wipe a little slower. (A chamois is not designed to be used quickly like a rag or dish towel.)
4. Don't wet the absorber and put it back in the tube no matter what the directions say. Hang it over something, such as a towel rack, and let it dry. When you need to use it again, just drench it with water until it softens, wring it out, and you're good to go.
