Paper Towel Buying Guide and Deals [Updating]

posted Jun 26, 2020

Whether cleaning up messes or faces, you want a paper towel that is strong, absorbent, and soft to the touch. In a new, small study, British researchers found paper towels were better than the air dryers often found in public restrooms at getting rid of germs that are still on your hands after you wash them.

What makes a good paper towel?

Paper towels are made up of ground-up plant material called cellulose, which can include wood, cotton, and other plants. It's very important to consider the physical properties as well as cost:

  1. Paper towel absorbency

    Absorbency property is the most important when choosing the best paper towels.

  2. Strength of paper towels

    Scrub strength can be checked by rubbing, after how many times it breaks.

  3. Softness

  4. Number of Layers

    Generally, three or more layers are better than two layers or single layer. As you know, more layers have more space for holding more water.

  5. Cost

    Keep in mind - each brand has a different number of sheets per roll, so comparing price can be tricky. You may find three layers are more expensive than two layers.

  6. Water filtering capacity
