I really love this towel! It actually absorbs water and doesn't just push it around like some towels. This may sound crazy, but I like my things to have as many purposes as possible, and since this is the perfect color for me and the texture doesn't seem like a towel at all I'm going to sew in a d...

A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.
More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) discovers that a hitchhiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitch hiker might accidentally have "lost." What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.
Hence a phrase that has passed into hitchhiking slang, as in "Hey, you sass that hoopy Ford Prefect? There's a frood who really knows where his towel is." (Sass: know, be aware of, meet, have sex with; hoopy: really together guy; frood: really amazingly together guy.)

Very thin and soft. Doesn't seem like it would dry off and hold a lot of liquid but it does. Dries quickly. Rolls up tight and was soft enough to wrap around clothing to stuff in a stuff sack easier. This is the second one I've bought.
I can only speak for us but we washed ours in the washing machine and dried it in the dryer. It came out fine. Cant speak to how this might affect the towel over time. I love the towel and it's better than a similar one we ordered at the same time.

We have washed them in the washing machine, cool water, along with other items. Have always hung them to dry, just in case heat has anything to do with affecting the quick-dry performance of them. So far, they still work good as new.

Yes you can. I wash them in cold just because I do everything except whites in cold. I put fast drying items like these on low if I'm in a hurry but usually just hang them up. I love how fast they dry! I use a bamboo drying rack to save electricity where I can. I first ordered them to use for showers while camping. I have a class B RV and needed to conserve space. And I don't like the look of towels hanging for hours waiting to dry. I liked them so much I ordered 2 more for the beach. They are just as big as a regular large bath towel. And they weigh so much less, it makes the beach bag so much lighter to carry. They come with a sewn in loop for hanging.

I've not washed it a bunch, but I have thrown it in the washer/dryer at least a few times and it's been perfectly fine. It dries super-fast, though... I love traveling with it because of that. I've washed it in the machine and then just hung to dry more often than putting it in the dryer just because it doesn't seem to need it. It does pack down really small, too, which is great.

I wash these along with other no fabric softener items, and dry them on low heat. They are just like new, excellent towels.

Label states: " Wash before use. Machine wash cold, no fabric softner, no bleach. Hang or dry low heat", but I've washed on warm and dried on warm without any visible problems. They seem fine after several washes. I do pull them out early from the dryer though because they dry more rapidly than our cotton towels and tees.

My wife uses this towel all the time and machine washes it. Not sure if she dries in a machine though. Ideal would certainly be to line dry, but I believe tumble drying on low with other clothes would be fine as well.

I wash them with other towels, and I have light and dark colors of mcNett towels. They go in the dryer fine. And I wash and dry on hot, not warm, no issue.

You can wash this towel however your little heart desires. It's the most durable towel i've ever come across.
