About - Bounty DuraTowel

The Bounty DuraTowel is part of the paper towel test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, paper towel models like the DuraTowel are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Absorbency is based on how much water a 5-inch square piece of towel could hold.

Scrubbing is based on the number of times a towel could be rubbed along a rough surface before the sheet tore.

Wet strength:
Wet strength is based on how much force it took for a steel ball to burst through a wet sheet of paper towel.

Best Uses
Switched from Viva to Bounty Duratowel after reading the great review in CR. I guess it works fine, but the ink in the towel bleeds all over everything. I called P&G and they said there was a warning on the package - like who reads a package of paper towels before using them??? This means they knew it bled, but sell it anyway.
