Frequently Asked Questions
Is it machine washable and dryable, and am I able to bleach it?
It is machine washable and bleachable but you cannot put it in the dryer. You can only air-dry your ShamWow towels.
What is the difference between a ShamWow towel and a real chamois?
A regular leather chamois cannot absorb that much water and gets hard when it dries. The ShamWow towel holds 10 times it's weight in liquid, does not drip when you're taking it to the sink, and when it dries, it stays soft. ShamWow towels may also be used for household and plenty of other uses.
What are the dimensions of the ShamWow towels, and am I able to cut them?
The massive ShamWow towels are 20 x 23.5 inches and the minis are 15 x 15 inches You can cut the large ones in half to use as a bath mat, drain your dishes, under your crisper to keep the veggies fresh, and even make smaller ones for dish rags.
Will it scratch the surface?
The ShamWow cloths won't scratch surfaces. They are created with a cloth-like material that turns into a soft leathery feel later.

What is the ShamWow material made out of?
ShamWow cloths are made out of a rayon material which is woven in a certain way to make it feel a bit like it felt when you first get it new. But once it becomes wet, it will become a soft leathery material.
