Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

it held its own in dusting and proved to be a useful and enduring dry towel. it still managed to scrub the cast-iron and carpet without tearing too many holes in itself.
Bounty – Select-A-Size performed at or near the top in each household test. It’s the strongest sheet, holding nearly 20 ounces of weight when wet.
This well-known brand has been cleaning up messes in homes for years. The two-ply paper towel also comes in select-a-size, allowing you to use less or more, depending on the size of the spill.
You'll like Bounty Basic paper towels if you're looking for an everyday cleaning aid at a slightly lower price. We found that these sheets didn't leave a lot of lint behind and dye didn't bleed from any of the patterned rolls.

What reviewers didn't like

When submerged, it did lose a bit of its strength. It didn’t scoop up as much ketchup as some of the others.
However, because it’s a high-quality product, Bounty is the most expensive one we tested, at $.045 per square foot.
Below-average absorbency. May tear when wet. Thin.
