Made of a unique material called PVA (Poly Vinyl Alcohol), This chamois cloth is vastly superior to a terrycloth towel and leather chamois. A uniform, sponge-like pore structure enhances capillary action, giving it drying capabilities no other product can match. Besides being a great automobile drying tool, it has endless uses that include: cooling your skin in the summer or after a workout, and drying your dog! With proper care your chamois lasts for years and can be stored moist and ready to use in its handy tube. A chamois is ideal for vehicles, boats, personal drying, dogs, household chores, and much more!
