Shandali Towel Product Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. One of the most recent products that I was allowed to review was the Shandali Travel Towel. Product Details Microfiber lightweight material Ultra absorbent Absorbs wetness and dries 10 times faster than cotton towels Multipurpose- can be used for travel, camping, sports, working out, beach, and more Comes in two different sizes S: 20" x 40" and M: 24" x 48"  Available in 3 different colors: Pebble and Stone (gray), Light Blue, and River Blue No bleed dye Hook attached to hang easily   Tip from the company: Machine wash with cold water, at least the first time. Hang to dry quickly. See the handy hook at the top of the towel? My Thoughts on This Towel I was really curious to see how this towel would be any different from a regular cotton terry towel. Well, it really is. Why? Because the material that it is made from is different. It's very soft and smooth.
