I have never had an instance when using it that there was any wetness on the client. I like that it is reusable and washable. I really like that the fabric is movable and not bulky like the plastic neutralizing capes. I usually just put a towel around their necks and than shampoo. Almost all of the time they get wet. Our bowls and chairs don't seem to line up very well. However with your bib I never have even a wet towel. The velcro has worked out nicely. The black color is great it stays clean looking since I do a lot of color services. Wipes off easily saved on having to use extra towels.
