    Yes, but shavings are much easier! Mary

    Is the cloth smooth or made of loops (ie terry cloth type)?

    By looking at/touching it -- it will either feel smooth or it will feel puffy (think like a bath towel) -- the issue with loopy fabric is that toenails/toes can become caught in the loops and this can lead to issues/injuries. From the photo it appears likely to be smooth.
