Default What are you plopping with?

What do you use to plop? Fancy, made for plopping equipment, t-shirts, micro-fiber towels (where do you find super long ones)? I'm trying to figure out if I really need to invest $20 into a plopping towel like that Curl-ease one.

Flour sack towel.
I saw turbin type towels at Big Lots and was tempted to try one.

As soon as I find my camera I'll have the DH take some pics this weekend so you can see how to turbie twist backwards.

I use a t-shirt and that seems to be doing fine, it would be interesting to see if something else worked better, not sure it would though.

Long sleeved t-shirts and tie the arms on top of my head. Works like a charm.

I use a short or long sleeved Tshirt, depending on which of my two "hair shirts" is closer.

Does that make anyone else think of medieval priests and their self-flagellation?

+1. I double up with them though for extra absorption. And they're cheap! Can't beat 5 bucks for a pack!

I want to see this. I love my turbie but my hair is too short to plop.

When I worked in a cafe, we had American Apparel as our work shirts, and if you know American Aparrel, their cotton is extreeeeemely soft! So I have been using my old work shirts since they are so soft and stretchy. They are short sleeved, the only downside, but I've been making them work. Plopping is definitely helping, though, I'm glad I learned about it through this board!
