While I haven’t used the body wash towel that long, I immediately noticed much more soapy lathers than from the old wash towel that I am used to. I usually prefer cotton wash towels as I have dry skin, and I found this towel to be a bit rough on my skin. Maybe it’s due to the nylon fibers? or maybe my skin is too sensitive.
I have read reviews that after continued use for several months, the towel starts to fray. This I will need to test and update.
So far, I am loving the foam I get from the towel. Maybe I will use it as a foaming shower ball instead.
After using the Body Wash Towel for several weeks, I am getting to like it a lot more. Soap lathers up effortlessly, maybe it’s due to the amount of water the towel holds and the amount of soap in the towel? I have also been able to create lathers from left over bits of soap!
