Drastic loss of absorbency from a previous brand!
September 18, 2018
Adding this to my Subscribe and Save order was a way to save a few dollars. Turns out I am going to be spending more as these towels are in no way as absorbent as my old national brand. The amount of towels I use for the same jobs are simply amazing to me! I just went into my subscribe and save, cancelled the order, and reordered my old brand. I am not giving the name of my old and brand that I have switched back to as I do not think it's allowed in reviews. Let's just say that with my old towels I would have to edit my order as I did not use all of the product prior to the next delivery. In this case it is possible I will have to order a few rolls to tide me over to my subscribe and save order in October. I did not realize how fast these went until today, too late for a Sept delivery.
The only PRO comment I can make is the size option, I like I can just tear a corner size to put in a coaster or under a hot coffee cup. The CONS are plural - not absorbent as even lower priced paper towels, they do not have the ability to rinse and reuse, they fall apart. Window and glass cleaning is a problem, there are too many small pieces break off while cleaning and lint like residue left behind.
An example of the lack of absorbency is my bird cage. With my old paper towel I could use 1 layer to absorb waste and water , these take 3 layers and I still get leakage to the liners.
I also use another paper towel, a bit more expensive, for it softness and weight. Even that paper towel that I use for purposes like cleaning dog ears, eyes, etc. for the softness of the product is much more absorbent than this paper towel. I regret the urge to save a few dollars when ultimently it is going to cost me much more. First by having to use so many more for each chore, and I now have to buy paper towels much earlier than expected, costing me almost twice of what the paper towel originally did.
