Default From drying towel to taco salad bowl

So I got a Black Magic drying towel, used it (it was... okay I guess), and hung it to dry. Yeah it dried, but it dried really hard and it kinda curled in. It looks like a taco salad bowl. And it is completely useless. What did I do wrong

Your post makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever.

Can you post in french? (or clarify and get more specific?)

For the less visually inclined, or may be I am FAR too imaginative for my own good (likely)..

My soft drying towel changed to this:

heh, it really does look like a taco salad bowl

Maybe they don't have them in the west?

We have taco bowls here. We just don't have black magic towels (and that towel don't look black to me).

Is it supposed to work like a chamois? If so, did you get it damp first?

Wet down before you use it again. It'll be just fine.

Ditto that. Looks like a chamois. You just soak it first before using it again. I hope you did that that first time, otherwise you must have some nice rub marks where you first used it. Of course if your car is white, you probably can't see it.

Psst.. Rach.. the instructions may have said to keep it semi moist or moisten before each use. When you finish using it.. leave it wet and put in a ziplock or other container that'll retain some of the moisture and you'll never fear making a salad in it.

I scrolled through the thread, and I couldn't find if you had let the towel soak in some water. Does it feel like a cast? How does it taste with refried beans?

Willwren, est-ce que tu parles Français, véritablement?
