Where to Buy Absorbent Towels, etc. Online

I met someone while cruising this last six months who told me a good resource online to buy those special absorbent towel and clips and other useful items to have on the boat. Trouble is I can't remember the name of the company. Any ideas?

were they the microfibre towels? friends of ours have them and absolutely love them as they are like sponges and naturally take up so little space... she got hers in the UK, but try google?

Good luck!

We bought the Costco towels and use them as utility clean up (i.e. boat towels). For People we use the great micro fiber towels from Steve and Ana Hall at NEAT items | shower heads, micro fiber towels, beach carts, potting benches, and more

They are fellow cruisers and have great products at fair prices.

We bought a supply and have been using them for over 7 years and love them. Work great on board.

Just remember that when you wash them, do it in very hot water and DO NOT use fabric softener.

Regards,
Bill

p.s. the shamwow is basically garbage - had one - didn't work for us.

Glad to know, never tried one...around here that's what comes to mind as the best known name. I guess that means the ads are working!

Personally, I just use an old towel. If that's not absorbent enough, I get another one. Hasn't failed me yet
