When you come to the paper towel aisle in the grocery store do you ever get frustrated and annoyed by all the brands to choose from? Every brand is telling you that they are the strongest and that their brand will absorb the fastest. Have you ever actually taken the time to figure out which brand is indomitable and absorbs the quickest? Well today I will fill you in on this mysterious secret and tell you not only which brand is not lying to you but also which brand you are getting your money’s worth and if paying that extra dollar is worth the name brand!

When I was finished looking over what had happened, I wrote down the results and everything all of my observations.
The first brand that I decided to start with was Scott. Scott brand claims to have fast absorbing ridges. I bought a package of ninety-six one-ply sheets for a $1.69.

It has fifty-five sheets with the figure 27.4 by 26.4 centimeters. I figured that each square costs somewhere around 0.018 cents.

The fourth brand that I put to the test was Bounty. Bounty says to be the “quilted quicker picker upper”. I have to beg to differ a little bit. This 2-ply roll with sixty-four paper towels allowed some...
