We all know the cubes that expand into a towel and the t-shirts from Muji, too.Do you remember the sponges shaped like dinosaurs? This gauze cloth won't expand as much, but conceptually it is a distant relative. 8 layers of compacted mosquito net: absorbent and dries fast! Before use, rinse the starch off in hot water and wash.YES, it does get soft. Those geometric patterns make me think of water molecules. I use it all summer as a cooling cloth! Basically also whenever I get stressed.It's the perfect travel towel for hot or cold anything.
