When you have thick and long hair like I do you need a towel to get that moisture out but be soft on your hair too and mine tends to hold water in for days if not blow dried. The microfiber hair towel is perfect for this. It dries my hair without the damage of a regular towel. Easy to clean and light weight and so very soft.
When it comes to dishes I don't use a strainer because I feel like they are a breeding ground for bacteria. I have always washed and then laid the dishes on a dish towel to dry. This microfiber dish towel also soaks up the water and dries quickly and is very soft to the touch.
Disclaimer: I received both products for testing and review purposes both exceeds expectations.
