Double layer: Tuff terry on the bottom, and a puffy on top
The Tuff terry is what I have laying around. The puffy is pretty.
Terry is corportate. The puffy is from ETSY
Theme : Skulls

I was death in an ice show. Somehow, the skull thing just happened.

They are at least 10 years old with giant holes in both ends. I have a nice cotton terry towel on my sewing chair set to make a new set. All I have to do is sit down and actually take a half-hour and sew the danged thing.

Okay, my predjudice here. TUFF Terry's are the only ones that last. I've tried other brands, but man they die quick and I never remember the brand.

Single soaker
Blue
Bought
No clue-I thought I was ordering terry but it's super fluffy
The first time I saw these (I ordered late at night and clearly wasn't paying enough attention) I thought "Yikes-I now have cookie monster soakers"  but they haven't developed holes.  I think I have had them for 3 years or so.

Impossible for me to answer the poll question because I don't use soakers. I dry the blades with a terry cloth and don't put guards on the blades until they reach room temperature to prevent condensation from forming.

1. Single soaker per blade
2. Plain color (light lavender)
3. Company made
4. Terry
5. None

I used to have turquoise ones but needed to replace my old ones and light lavender was all the skate shop had that I liked in my price range.

Homemade ones sound lovely though.
