It's called the Absorber. Put it back in the tube wet. Promise it won't mold. They're great.

Re: where to find a good chamios for drying car?

Dang, I wish I could remember the brand I bought last. It was some sort of synthetic chamois I picked up at Checker Auto Parts, and it works great! Don't think I saved the receipt, but I will look into it for ya.

Lots of help, eh?

I bought two of the Absorbers from WalMart, one for my Titan and one for the fiance's Acura. They beat the hell out of traditional chamios. You have to get them completely wet and then squeeze them out. They work great! and cheaper than chamios.

I've had the Absorbers for years and they wear very well. They don't break down and shred either. And they don't stink like fish oil like the natural chamois'.

Thats what I was referring too. I couldn't remember the name. As stated above, put it back in tube wet/semi wet and it will last years. My dads is about 2 or 3 years old and still works like new!
