I found these paper towels to be very absorbable and did not break at all like other brands, They easily handled big spills with no problems at all. They are great for cleaning and hold their shape. They are eco-friendly which is fantastic for the environment. I would highly recommend these for those who are tired of using half a roll to clean up a small mess. A little goes a long way with these paper towels. I used them when cleaning down my oven and they handled the job with ease without creating a lot of mess. A great paper towel that I will be definitely be buying again.
