From time to time clients ask us what kind of cleaning tools we use to get the amazing efficiency and result. Today we want to introduce synthetic chamois. They could be bought from local Bunnings stores, from $8.8 - smaller ones are cheaper.

Synthetic chamois is made of a unique material called PVA (Poly Vinyl Alcohol). It is well known for an auto cleaning tool but it can also be used to cool your skin in the summer or after a workout, dry your hair or pets, baby skin care etc.

We normally use chamois to wipe down mirrors, windows/glasses, or other surface requires drying water from. They won’t scratch. They are lint free. They can dry anything faster and easier.

Below is some information which you can easily find online by google “synthetic chamois”.

Before first use, rinse with warm water or in the washing machine. Do not use fabric softener or bleach. Do not dry in the dryer. After use, rinse them well, wring out, and place back in tube damp (or a self-seal bag (if you do not have a tube). Its anti-mould and mildew technology will prevent rotting and extend the life of the product.

If you allow it  to air dry, it will become stiff – but it is no big deal. Simply re-hydrate it in warm water and it will spring back to life and be ready to use. Routine washing is highly recommended. If you repeatedly place a soiled chamois in its tube, it will still work, but may acquire an odor or grow mildew. With proper care they can last for years.
