The "kitchen cloth" <https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71mC52h-hIL._SL1500_.jpg> from Trader Joe's is a synthetic chamois that works amazingly in for this purpose. $3.99 for 2 pack. We usually cut each one in half (so you have 4 per pack) and use them around the boat and house. They launder reasonably well and they come in various colors. On our 30-2 I take a half and stick it through the toe rail. They stay put and will wick amazingly.
