Franco Harris is a big guy. The former Pittsburgh Steelers running back, 9-time Pro Bowler and 4-time Super Bowl champion is an imposing six-foot two inches and weighs a good bit over 200 pounds. When this man exercises — which he says he does daily at his gym — there’s little doubt that he pours on the sweat. This, he told me in a recent meeting at the Men’s Journal office, he sops up with his company’s cloth, the SilverSport Silver Towel. Then — in a cringe-worthy admission — he says he doesn’t wash it for at least two week. The reason he can do with without making a serious stink, he claims, is the Silver Towel, a fabric that, like some smell-ridding clothing from companies like Adidas, Brooks, and Columbia is embedded with nanosilver particles. A natural enemy to bacteria, silver particles work best when they come in contact with moisture, like sweat. While some questions about the environmental safety of nanosilver manufacturinghave been brought forth by the EPA, it’s a proven antimicrobial agent. The Silver Towel comes in 20” x 30” and 20” x 60” sizes and the SilverSport also sells a yoga mat and pilates roller with embedded particles.
LOVE IT: Is it really feasible that the Silver Towel could handle two weeks worth of Harris sweat? This (admittedly sweaty) daily bike commuter and 160-pound runner felt the need to triple that time and give it a sniff. Miraculously, after six weeks of daily use, the towel gave a faint smell of a dank basement, but this was overpowered by a fresh, new car smell. In short, the towel worked a miracle on my man musk.
LEAVE IT: While the towel does away with smell, be sure to hang it out to dry. While it’s not quite sponge-like in its absorbing powers, it sure holds onto that sweat.
