Best Uses
Consumer Reports rated these towels with the same number. 68. as a national brand that I've been using for months. When I saw the packages of this towel on the shelf they were so similar in appearance to the brand I normally purchased that I was delighted and bought a package. When I actually used the paper towel, however, I realized that it was MUCH thinner than the Brawny towels rated similarly. Then.. I used it. These towels are incredibly strong and incredibly absorbant despite the fact that they seem so thin. They are the paper towels that I'm now going to purchase.
How long have you owned it:
