Paper towels are a common sight in every household’s kitchen and bathroom. When Arthur Scott came up with the idea of the disposable paper towel back in 1932, nobody would have had the slightest clue as to how popular and commonly used the product will become. It is the simplest way to get rid of difficult spills.
A paper towel (or kitchen paper) is an absorbent towel made from tissue paper instead of cloth. Unlike cloth towels, paper towels are disposable and intended to be used for drying and wiping. Paper towels soak up water because they are made from paper pulp : Virgin Fibers, TAD Towels and Recovered (or Recycled) paper, Other fibers are now been used such as: Bamboo pulp and Wheat Straw pulp.Paper towels can be individually packed (as stacks of folded towels or held coiled) or come in rolls. Paper towels have similar purposes to conventional towels, such as drying hands, wiping windows, dusting, and cleaning up spills.
