Absorbency

Don’t be fooled by all the claims out there about which is the “best” towel. Here at GUS Towels, “claims” of absorbency don’t make the grade. That’s why we put on our lab coats to test the absorbency of every towel. As a baseline, we only carry towels that absorb more than 200% of their own weight. Remember that in some situations a towel can be too absorbent. If you shower multiple times a day or live in a humid climate, a towel that scored above 600% absorbency may not completely dry out between uses.
