If you love a day at the beach but get tired of dragging all the sand back to your car or home, a sand-resistant beach blanket promises to help solve your problem. These blankets are made from a lightweight material that keep sand from sticking. Other beach blankets, made from a terry cloth or towel-like materials, are hard to completely shake free from sand. Some sand-resistant blankets have wide, woven fibers to help sand pass through instead of clinging to the fabric. Built-in grommets can provide a space for stakes. A convenient carrying strap is available on some models.
