      I have to admit I’m often appalled by the outrageous prices for paper products like paper towels, but I’ve found that some of the bargain brands are so bad they are practically worthless at cleaning up anything. So last time I went to pick up some paper towels, I decided to give the new Bounty Basics a try since I had seen a commercial about it a few days before. At a little under a dollar for a single roll, I purchased two of them to give them a fair try - and even if they

      didn’t work, at least I wouldn’t be wasting much money!

      I should mention up front that the prices struck me as kind of odd, and I’m not sure if it’s because of the grocery store from where I bought them, or if the pricing is dictated by the product’s company. The single rolls were something like $0.96/each, but the 8 pack was over $8, coming to more than a dollar per roll. Maybe I’m being too nitpicky, but I thought it was really weird; I’m disappointed in whoever was in charge of the pricing. It’s very deceptive for shoppers on the go.

      Since I’ve bought the paper towels, I’ve been nothing but happy with them. If you compare them to more expensive towels, they seem to clean up just as well, typically using a similar amount of towels which means you’re not going through more and thus costing you more. There’s no frilly designs or colors of any sort on the towels, and I actually really appreciate that. I think the designs are a way for them to increase the price of paper towels that are the same quality as plain towels, and I ...


      • Bounty Basic Paper Towels
      have actually found it to be increasingly difficult to find towels that don’t have anything printed on them. The towels have a good weight to them, but I will admit they are a tiny bit thinner than other, more expensive paper towels. It doesn’t really affect the quality, however, and I am really impressed by the absorbency. I also tend to get more than one use out of towels which is great for saving money and saving the environment. I’m often able to use a paper towel to put food/snacks on, and then later use it
      to clean up a mess. And best of all, they aren’t that awful soft/clothlike consistency like Scotch paper towels, which I hate!

      Overall, I’m really satisfied with the product. You do sacrifice a bit of thickness, but you still get great absorbency and cleaning ability. These towels definitely live up to their Bounty name, and I’m so glad they made such a simple, cost-effective product for people on a budget. I actually think they’re less costly than bargain brands that are much thinner and less useful! I will definitely be buying more and will recommend them to others.
