Recently, I was scrolling through Instagram (as you do) and saw a suggested ad for something I thought was impossible – a beach towel that repels sand.
There's nothing worse than a towel/bag/car/house full of sand, but it's almost unavoidable after a day at the beach. I'd kind of just accepted it as a first world problem I'd always have to live with, because SURELY there's no such thing as a sand free towel?
But I was still dubious, so I ordered one to really try it out for myself.
So I went for a swim, came back out, and sat on the towel getting it all wet and prime for optimal sand stick-ability.
And when I shook it out – ALL THE SAND CAME OFF!
Also they were not lying about it being quick-drying. I hung it up in the sun after swimming, and it went from very wet to bone dry in about an hour.
And yep, it folds up really small which makes it so easy to carry around everywhere.
My verdict: It works! It's great for the beach, the sand slides right off. If you love fluffy towels, though, you should steer clear.
