How does it work:
Supertowel™ is a reusable and highly durable towel that includes a permanently bonded anti-microbial layer. It is designed to provide clean hands without soap, only with a small amount of water. Supertowel™ is designed with a permanently bonded antimicrobial technology. When the towel is being wet and rubbed against hands or on a dirty surface, the negatively charged pathogens will be transferred to the towel and killed. The antimicrobial technology forms a positively charged layer on the fabric. This layer will attract and kill the negatively charged pathogens, like bacteria and fungi. The treatment does not contain any harmful chemicals.
One package contains 3 towels.
- Dimensions: 30cm x 30cm
