Ice because when you leave some thing to dry it drys but if you let ice to dry it gets wet because it melts

Because it will get wetter as you dry yourself off then it will dry back up to use it next time

It’s a towel. Ice does not “dry”. It melts then it evaporates. Evaporating is not drying.??

It’s a towel because the more you use a towel the Wetter is Gets because the towel is meant to Absorb the Water/liquid while your using it to make you or the Object dry. So the answer is a Towel.

It is a towel but everyone’s reasons are wrong , the towel gets wet while it also is drying the person using it so it gets wet as it dries you.

I think the riddle is searching for one object that is getting wetter as it dries, so the reason the answer is the towel because it dries a person or whatever, is wrong imo. That way the answer could be a sponge, a rag, or anythnig that absorbs liquid. I agree with Ozzy because ice is the only logical answer. Or maybe the riddle doesnt make sense. If the answer is towel, that this is the easiest riddle known to mankind.

Have a nice day.

The question was taken from amazon riddles, I guess, there they gave answer as towel so all so called intellectuals started proving that answer as correct because no one has the courage to question the one who had asked.
You guys forgot to see there is another option given as clouds. Now what’s the difference between dry and wet? Offcourse, the moisture content, right???
Now if clouds loose moisture, its surface will get wet because that moisture turns to liquid form of water, so more the clouds loose moisture more wet will be the clouds as clouds is a form of ice.
All those who think answer is towel because it dries other while getting wet by itself, need to read it again or need to learn the basic principles of english and learn the proper use of “while”. Your answer would be correct if sentence says, “when it dries” not “while it dries”. Also dries was wrong, correct word would be “drys” there, so “while it drys” may be correct sentence for “towel” as answer.
