I used one of these during my latest Texas Revolution reenactment at George Ranch Historical Park this past weekend. I included it in my supplies for personal hygiene. There were no showers or indoor sinks available. I washed up in the privacy of my tent using a small basin, water, soap, and a washcloth. I dried myself with the cotton woven hand towel. It worked well. It absorbed water easily and dried on the back of my camp chair quickly.
