Gear: I’VE GOT A SECRET RUNNING TOWEL


In the past, I have paid between $9.00 for cheap to the most expensive from REI $15.00 for towels to wipe the sweat for my head and other dripping wet parts after a run. I know not something pleasant to talk about but a fact of life in any physical activity.

All of the towels that I purchased or were given to me as “race swag” did an okay job but never really could keep up with the sweat and were useless after a few minutes. Hand towels, you use at home, work good but seem kind of big? Maybe heavy is a better word.

It wasn’t until two weeks ago that I realized that in the past, I don’t know, three years plus or minus one? I found the perfect running towel by accident. I didn’t even realize it until my wife used it one day and then asked what brand my running towel was because she wanted to order one to use.

Oh, that’s a car towel, I laughed, not something made for sports. She looked at me confused and said, what? I explained, well, after a run, one day went into the garage to get something, and the sweat was running into my eyes; I spotted a package of new car detail towels that I had bought and took one out to wipe my face. It worked great, so that’s the only towel I have ever used since.

I never even thought about it. The perfect towel for ridding your face and body of workout liquid has nothing to do with sports! and the best part is you get a pack of two 24 ¾” X 15 3/8″ towels for $3.50. What a deal!

The design of how the fiber is put together is why detailing towel does such a good job removing the moisture. It’s the bumps and twills that work magic at removing sweat. The package read One Side Cleans and One Side Polishes, Lint Free, Non-Abrasive, and Absorbent.

The detail towels are made by Grant’s Part number #64283 and are available from Harbor Freight at $3.49 for a pack of two. Harbor Freight is the only place I have found these particular towels. So if you are looking for a great towel to reduce that running or workout body moisture, give these a try. For $3.50, you don’t have much to lose.
