Wysiâ¿¢ Wipe Biodegradable Towels
Indespensible Travel Item
These towels are fantastic! I keep a bag in my purse at all times and they have come in handy so many times - whether I've needed to deal with a small spill, wipe off my face on a hike, or quicly clean my hands, these towels have served as a quick solution with a little water.

Perfect for what they are!
I love that these are biodegradable. Despite that, they are strong and soft. They are not solid but are more "meshy" when they expand. These do NOT have soap on them already ... which is actually great because I used them to wipe a child's eyes and face on a hot, sunny day.

But I'm still searching for the ideal situation in which I need these. I have a package of these stashed in the trunk of my car, but thats obviously not a good place for them, since I never get to use em.
I think part of the problem is that you need two ingredients to make this product work. â¿¿A cloth, and then water. Well, wherever you find one you're likely to find the other. So I'm never missing part of the equation. If I spill something in my car, then I just reach for the healthy stack of fast food napkins in the back pocket. If I need water, than I'll stop someplace (probably a fast food restaurant, or a quick mart); and again, they have napkins. (not to mention a bathroom)
And I don't think it's a good idea to have one of these things tumbling around the coat pocket. The moisture of perspiration and other external factors, like rain for instance, will cause this thing to swell and become a globby mess in your pocket. (let alone if you forget about it and send it thru a wash cycle with your clothes.)
And for that matter again, you can just fold up paper napkin to keep in your pocket. Same amount of work/Same amount of riskâ¿¦
So maybe these things need a little help to make them worth while. They could be pretreated with a little soap or something. At least then, it's a gimmick that's harder to reproduce under normal circumstances.
I guess I just need to take these camping with me, or perhaps to Europe, like one of the other reviewers suggests. â¿¿Anywhere that'll remove me from my normal routines of preparedness. And wont you know, that'll be the exact time I forget to pack themâ¿¦

Though thin, theses were purchased as my college son travels to Ghana for a service progect for 3 months - we tried one of them before he packed and they were perfect for a quick towel - when he wasn't sure when the next wash day would be!
