How long will a Frosty Towel® last after I open it before I have to moisten it for the first time?
It will depend on how high the heat and humidity are as well as whether you are using it outside or inside. Typically, if you follow the instructions, you should get 6 to 10 hours out of one towel the first day if it is below 85 degrees before you have to lightly moisten it again. DO NOT SOAK THE TOWEL OR DIP IT IN A BUCKET OF WATER, only put a little amount of water on the towel to keep the natural plant oils and extracts moist. If it is above 85 degrees you will get 3 to 4 hours plus out of one towel the first day before you have to moisten it again. It you are using it inside in normal conditions you can get several days use of one towel. Please remember this, if you are constantly waving the Frosty Towel® in the air you will dry it out much faster. You should only have to wave it in the air once every 20 to 30 minutes after the first hour under normal weather conditions.
How many times can I use a single Frosty Towel®? (Is this a one time use towel? NO)
This will depend on how you are using it, what you are using it for and if and when you get it dirty. Please follow the instructions on how to lightly moisten the towel, do not soak or run water from a faucet on the towels.
If you are using it for a sporting event like watching a ball game, golf or tennis you can use it many times again following the same directions after you have open the package as describe above.
If you are participating in the sporting event it will depend on how dirty you get it. For example, many people can use the same Frosty Towel® for three to five rounds of golf.
If you are using the Frosty Towel at a theme park where Frosty Towel® is sold you can get several days use out of one depending again on how hot and humid it gets and/or how dirty you get it.
If you are using the Frosty Towel® for hot flashes or menopause you can use the same towel up to two or three months to help you through hot flashes by keeping the Frosty Towel® lightly moist and in your refrigerator, cooler, or freezer after it has been open the first time.
If you purchased the towel because it has citronella and lemon grass to repel certain insects then you can use the Frosty Towel® for several weeks by keeping it in a refrigerator, cooler, taking it out only to wipe down your skin prior to going outside.
Finally: At night or when you return from using the Frosty Towel® lightly moisten the towel as describe above. Roll the towel up and place it back in its Frosty Towel® re-sealable package and place it in your refrigerator, freezer, or cooler after it has been open the first time. Frosty Towel® will be ready for you to use again the next time you want to stay cool.
How to take care of Frosty Towel® for additional uses:
At night or when you return from using the Frosty Towel® lightly moisten the towel as described above. Roll the towel up and place it back in its Frosty Towel re-sealable package and place it in your refrigerator, freezer, or cooler. Frosty Towel will be ready for you to use it again the next time you want to stay cool.
If you can still smell the oils and the towel is not very dirty you can keep lightly moistening the Frosty Towel and keep it in your refrigerator for multiple uses. At some point the essential oil in Frosty Towel® will run out or get really dirty.
Once you decide that it is dirty you can wash the Frosty Towel® in the laundry. Once you take it out of the dryer all the essential oils are gone. You then have two different choices:
first choice, because we use a high quality cotton you can rewet the towel with water. Place it back in a zip top package and put it in your freezer or refrigerator. You will then have a nice cold towel to use anytime you need a cold towel only; just like the expensive manmade cooling towels
Second choice: use the Frosty Towel as a wash cloth, bath cloth, sports towel or shop cloth etc. The towel will last for many years around the house or shop.
How long will the Frosty Towel® last if I leave it in the package unopened?
It has a two year shelf life.
Does Frosty Towel® have any harmful man made chemicals in it to make it cold?
Frosty Towel only uses natural plant oils and extracts to make it cold. These are all derived from plants. As a result we do recommend that read the package carefully prior to using our towels.
Do I need to refrigerate the towels or ice the towels down prior to using them?
No you do not, the Frosty Towel® is pre-moistened with purified water and natural plant oils and extracts. So all you have to do is wave it in the air and it cools down. Personally, on very hot days I put them in the freezer or in a cooler full of ice to make the super cold, but this is not required.
Do I need a water source to start the cooling process?
NO, you do not need water to start the cooling process like the other products in the market place. Frosty Towel® is pre-moistened with purified water and natural plant oils and extracts. So all you have to do is wave it in the air and it cools down. After you have used the Frosty Towel for a while (depending on the heat, humidity, and wind) the towel could dry out some. Lightly moisten with a little bit of water. You can splash some on it with you hand, take few cap fulls from a bottle of water, or put 3 to 5 ice cubes in the towel. DO NOT SOAK THE TOWEL OR DIP IT IN A BUCKET OF WATER, only put a little amount of water on the towel to keep the natural plant oils and extracts moist.
