Chill Out and Muc-Off!

     It isn't always easy to get all your fluids in to cool yourself down, in what little summer time we have in this country and handheld fans go through AA batteries like the Fast and The Furious cast go through gears. Now the clever people at Muc-Off have come up with the 'Ice-Fresh Sports Towel' for the ultimate fresh, clean feeling ideal for when you're on the go.

     First of all a little history lesson for those of you who haven't heard of Muc-Off and their fabulous products before. It all started in 1991 when Rex and Marilyn Trimnell started X-Lite UK, designing the world's first twin crown bicycle fork and came across the problem of keeping their goods clean as a whistle. 3 years later the Eco friendly pink cleaning fluid was formulated, keeping components clean and corrosive free, and in their words "the best thing since sliced bread". Since then they have been making leaps and bounds into various cycle and motor sports with a vast range of products to keep you and your kit crisp and clean. Even becoming one of the leading brands on Le Tour de France for....

      Back to the product, using its revolutionary, high performance materials the towel can react with the moisture to provide an instant cooling sensation. Which is ideal for cooling and cleaning when you're on the move. Keeping in with the same style as the rest of the range, the packaging is simple but very effectively creative with the standard issue black and pink. Like many other Muc-Off products i've used in the past, I also found several uses for the packaging after the towel had come out.

     I must admit it is one of the weirdest sensations of being cooled down with moisture but not actually getting wet that i've ever had.... Not only does it keep you cool, with it's built in Factor 45 (SPF45) it shields you from harmful UV rays when you're in the sun as well. Here are the simple directions on how to use it, but I mean its a towel.... How hard can it be right?!

Step 1 - Wet towel with water.

Step 2 - Squeeze out excess moisture.

Step 3 - Hold the towel at both ends and pull apart, snapping the towel at both ends. (Watch out for the odd moisture to the eye.... CHEEKY!)

Step 4 - To reactivate, simply snap again. To reactivate a dry towel, repeat steps 1 to 3.
      As you can see after use the towel quite easily can be folded neatly back again to it's original packaged form. Because NO ONE likes trying to cram a tent back in it's bag again do they. You can find the Muc-Off towel at most cycling and sports shops between £6-£10, so not a bad buy considering the longevity of use you get. We highly recommend this product not only for sporting use but general outdoor shenanigans as well.
Most importantly don't forget your fluids throughout the day!!
