Cooling Towels by ArcticBlu™

FAQ

1. What is the ArcticBlu™ made of?

The ArcticBlu™ are all constructed of a proprietary blend of organic and synthetic material that can be located in Superman’s ice cave.

2. How does the ArcticBlu™ Cooling Towel Work?

The ArcticBlu™ material is highly absorbent, (like a sponge) and can absorb up to 8 times its weight in water. Once wet, the towels produce a cooling affect with the help of simple evaporation. As long as the towel is wet, the towels will stay cool. Exposure to the air will keep it cooler even longer.

3. How should I care for the towels?

Simply follow the instructions on the packaging. Once removed from the plastic packaging, wet the towel thoroughly with warm water, wring out any excess water, re-wet with cold water and allow the towel to begin evaporating. If the towel becomes sweaty or dirty, machine or hand wash with standard clothing detergent and rinse completely. Hang the towel to dry, or place the towel in a storage container. Do not put in dryer. When storing the towel, (once washed) you may want to use the original storage tube that was included with the towel or store in a Ziploc bag for safe keeping. But the towel can also be hung and stored dry. (Simply repeat the process and use the towel to use again).

4. Can I put my towels in the refrigerator or freezer?

Yes to the refrigerator but not the freezer. Since the ArcticBlu™ cooling towel material is loaded with water when in use, placing it in the freezer would cause it to freeze and become brittle. However, placing the towel in a Ziploc bag or polybag and placing it in the refrigerator is recommended. This will help the towel remain damp, in preparation for its next use.

5. What happens of my towel becomes dry?

No worries! Re wet the towel (preferably in warm or hot water) and wring out the excess water once the towel is completely wet. If the towel has been dry or in storage for a long period of time, (and has become stiff) place it in the washing machine on a “hot” and wash it like you would a t-shirt. This will clean and soften the material at the same time.

6. How long will my towel work?

Several years with proper care, cleaning and storage.

7. Will the towel become less effective with age?

No. If the towel is washed, stored, and cared for properly, it will continue to work for several years.

8. Can I cut my towel?

Yes. Each towel has an internal mesh reinforcing material that will allow you to cut it into any shape that fits your needs.

11. Can I wear my ArcticBlu™ under my clothes?

Yes, but for maximized use air exposure will increase its effectiveness, the towels should be allowed to breath, and be exposed to air when in use. In fact, turning the towels periodically when in extended use will help the evaporation and cooling process and allow skin to “breathe” as well.

12. Is the ArcticBlu™ material recyclable?

Yes, And safe for the environment, in fact you can shred it and compost it, it will actually keep your garden moist!
