The Benefits of a Manky

Quick to use

Mankies prefer to be stuffed in your pocket, up your sleeve or tied to handle bars, not folded up each time.

Waterproof

Yes, Mankies are brilliant for wet activities.  The microfibre material is super fast at drying.

Polishing cloth for glasses / phones / laptops

Mankies are made from optical grade microfibre cloth, the same cloth used to make glasses cleaning cloth. Mankies love to absorb oil and water.

Powerful marketing tool

Because they are a durable cleaning cloth, the Manky will promote your brand for a long time.  People wonder how they survived pre-Manky once they have one!

Souvenir product

Being a light and thin material, Mankies are an excellent gift or souvenir product. Cheap to post, Mankies are also easy to carry in your backpack.  They're very likely to be hauled out at dinner time in the backpackers when comparing activity notes with fellow travellers.

Great in windy conditions

Mankies love the wind. Unlike paper they will not blow away or rip in the wind!

Can be upcycled

You can use a Manky time and time again. It does not fray, tear or fade. Once it stops being used for information you have a fantastic household, car or office cleaning cloth.

Kind to the environment

Paper maps often get dropped in their playground once they get wet or damaged. This has negative effects on the local eco system. Durable/useful Mankies won't be thrown away so readily.

Can't run out of battery

No explanation needed here!

Machine washable

The Manky is good for over 200 machine washes. Avoid fabric softener though as it blocks the super absorbent fibres.

Can be written on with a pen

Indeed you can. Amazingly you can write on a Manky with a rollerball pen.  The ink does not run, it behaves just like paper. A brilliant feature when out in the field.

Photo quality print

The super tight weave of the microfibre allows for print resolution that is virtually as good a paper. Has to be seen to be believed!
