That Little Towel Olympic Divers Use Is Perfect for Drying Dishes

I’ve been using a swim shammy as a dish towel for several weeks now, and I haven’t looked back. I google “special towel divers use” and discover a swim shammy. A swim shammy is synthetic PVA material designed to replicate the lint-free and highly absorbent qualities of a traditional chamois. I’ve been experimenting with the shammy in the kitchen and found that it does, actually, dry dishes remarkably well. Sure it’s a little weird to use an Olympic-grade towel for drying your dishes.
