According to independent research performed by the Sweet Home, Bounty's Select-a-Size paper towels have the greatest scrubbing strength when compared to other commercially available paper towels. These paper towels are highly absorbent, and the select-a-size feature allows consumers to use less material on small jobs.
A paper towel is effective if it absorbs liquid while minimizing the number of towel sheets used. However, absorbency rates do not take into consideration a paper towel’s ability to withstand scrubbing along rough surfaces. The Sweet Home reports that Bounty's Select-a-Size has the greatest scrubbing strength, and that Viva by Kleenex has a higher rate or absorption.
