The compressed EZ Towel is about the size of a nickel and it is 3/8″ thick. All you need to do is simply add a little water (less that 1-oz required), watch it grow, unfold and use. When the EZ Towel is unfolded, it is about 8 1/2″ by 9 1/2″ and it is durable, soft and absorbent. They are made out of 100% Rayon material that is bio-degradable. The EZ Towel comes packaged in a convenient, re-sealable pouch that holds 50 towels.
