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

Scrubbing: 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.
