I was planning on doing a GB for the "big blue". There's a local dealer in Toronto. He also does Zaino. His price is 2/$50 for the 24X36 microfibre waffle weave. Here's his email addy.

2 for $50 sounds like a scam.. also they refrence their product to a mythological creature that doesn't exist

Aren't those the "Absorber" that they sell at Wal-Mart or Cdn Tire? I don't think those are micro-fibre towels. www.pakshak.com sells micro-fibre towels.

Another vote for Dennis zainoguy@durham.net
You can get the Zaino products from him as well.

There's also another Zaino distributor in Burlington who might carry them. His name is Tom Anthony. He is located around Appleby Mall. His web site is:
