Not worth the money you "Save"
Non-absorbant Tears Easy
Best Uses
Sparkle is a joke. A bad joke. I've had printer paper that was as absorbent as this junk. My wife bought some because of the money she would save over the top brand, the one that begins with B and ends in Y which we've used quite successfully for years. Well we have to use so much more Sparkle that we ended up losing money. My advice is to stick to the brand that holds so many of the top spots in this category.
