Default How large should a flour sack be?

I want to buy one for plopping, but don't know how big it should be. Is 16 x 26 ok?

I wanna use this method: Plopping the Live Curly Live Free Way

I suppose it depends on what size your head is! I use the 28"x29" FS towels from Walmart but my head is big.

The ones a got from target are 28 inches square. I fold one corner under and put the fold at my forehead, they're plenty big.

On the bright side you can always use it for drying instead of plopping if it's too small.

+1. Even though they seem too thin to do anything, the FST are incredibly absorbent. I just lay mine over my hair before getting out of the shower & it just pulls the water out like a magnet.

I bought mine from Target, but I'm not sure how big it is, and it has since shrunk (hubby didn't realize not to put them in the dryer

Also, don't use fabric softener on them, as it reduces absorbency.
