A Towel That Doesn't Get Dirty

Originally designed as a helimat to stop helicopters from kicking up debris during landing, the Sandless Beach Mat ensures no unwanted particles will ever reach your personal belongings. Unlike other beach towels, this beach mat designed by CGear Sandfree Limited will always stay clean, even if you drop sand directly on the surface. Layers of patented woven polyurethane act as a one-way filter, instantly distilling the sand and preventing it from reemerging through the bottom of the mat. The mat, available in three sizes depending on the size of your beach party, also eliminates dirt, dust, and water from the surface, ensuring a good clean time at the beach.
Cost: $59.99 for a medium.
