Zorbeez is a chamois cloth which is claimed by manufacturer Vertical Branding to be capable of absorbing over 20 fluid oz (600 mL) of liquid. It was claimed that the initial sales of the product were pleasing by the CEO of Vertical Branding Nancy Duitch.[1] KCBD said when it was compared with a paper towel and a cloth towel, it prevailed against the two other products, though they commented at its tendency to fray.[2] A test by WTAE-TV channel resulted in a 2 out 4 rating, with them commenting that "it does not clean well".[3]

The product was popularized by American pitchman Billy Mays, who advertised the product in 2009.[4]

Popular American YouTuber and Twitch Streamer DougDoug, known for his gaming challenges and comedic videos, has frequently used the Billy Mays infomercial as a running joke in some of his videos, popularizing the product again in the 2020s.[5][6]
