A reusable and highly durable towel that includes a permanently bonded anti-microbial layer. It is designed to provide clean hands without the use of soap and using a minimal amount of water.

The jury says
It looks just like an ordinary towel, but a built-in antimicrobial membrane gives the user clean, germ-free hands in situations that offer neither running water nor soap. The design solution addresses a practical hygiene problem with a high-tech solution – with the potential to improve sanitary conditions anywhere in the world.
