Best Paper Towels TechnoBuffalo 2020

Life is messy, and sometimes you need a quick fix for spills. That's where paper towels come in handy, for cleaning all the dirties that come your way. While some paper towels just flat-out work better than others, some come conveniently sized to suit different needs. Here's the rundown of what we like and why.

Blitz it: Regina Blitz Household Towels

Staff Pick

Durable, absorbent and reliable, that's Regina in a nutshell. The build quality is streets ahead and will see you whiz through all your household chores with ease. Regina Blitz works excellent on several surfaces around the house, including glass and glossy ones without leaving any fluffy or lint residue. It can double up as a napkin or clean your pet's muddy claws.

Jumbo sized: Amazon Brand - Presto! Jumbo Pack

If you long for old fashion full-sheet paper towels, this 18-count pack from Presto! will impress. With 80 sheets per roll, you'll get well over one thousand thirsty paper towels per box. These Full-size sheets are sourced from sustainable forests, something we always like to see. Do they work? Yes! The towels can soak up big and small messes, and suitable for handling food. As a former user of big brand name paper towels, I've made the switch to Presto and haven't noticed a difference in quality.

Tough on grime, easy on the planet: The Cheeky Panda Kitchen Towel

Cheeky Panda has made a name for themselves producing eco-friendly toiletries that are easy on the planet yet tough on dirt. These paper towels are made from 100% naturally sustainable bamboo, which is a joy to eco-warriors and packs excellent absorbency properties compared to regular paper towels. Although the sheets are two-ply, the towels don't disintegrate into mush mid cleaning.

Towels you can take anywhere: Scott Essential Multifold Paper Towels

Scott paper towels don't come on the usual roll but are instead folded and tucked into cardboard packs. There are 16 packs included, and each contains 250 sheets. In case you're not doing the math with me, that's a whopping 4,000 paper towels per box! The towels can fit in most universal multifold paper towel dispensers, or a glove compartment, on your kitchen counter, or anywhere else you need them.

Our top picks

If you prefer to use one paper towel for a little bit of every chore and on multiple surfaces around the house, Regina Blitz Household towels is the go-to paper towel. The build quality is fantastic, way ahead of alternative brands, which lets you whizz through chores easily. Boasting super absorbency qualities, the sheets don't disintegrate into mush mid cleaning, and they work great even on glass and mirrors, without leaving lint residue.

Harness the power of nature by switching from single-use paper towels to the Ecoegg Re-usable Bamboo Towels. The towels are made from sustainable bamboo, and bamboo is one of the strongest and super absorbent materials available today. Even better, the towels are machine washable and reusable up to 85 times. You'll get fewer towels per roll, but they still seem to go as far.
