To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First off, the positives; or why you might want to buy this product: As a dry towel, the paper material is great - it has a very nice smooth feeling, and those slight ridges in the design provide a nice texturing effect. If the goal is a single-use soak of liquids, it is very absorbent and soaks up liquids right away.
The big negative; or why you might be unhappy if you buy this for the wrong reasons: It is very mediocre as a cleaning towel, yes it's super absorbent, but the paper gets super gummy and loses any friction; and after just a few wipes on a counter-top it begins to tear and break apart.
Bottom line: If you're expecting this to also wipe up larger spills or to wring it out for multiple counter-top runs, this is not the product for you. If you're buying this as a place mat during messy meals, or to quickly soak up oils or spills in a one-use capacity, or for your neck during a hair trim; or just as a very nice feeling paper cover for something - it's great for all of those things and you should get it for those reasons.
These are a little thinner than paper towels, but they’re still really durable. I actually like using them around the house for polishing quartz countertops because they bring out a shine much better than regular paper towels. I normally have to wet my paper towel to prevent streaks on my countertops, but with these, I can just use my cleaning spray and the texture on the Wubbies towels cleans without having to scrub.
These towels are great for keeping around my art studio as well has having in a workshop or kitchen. They are light and fluffy but also quite absorbent. I like these instead of the roll because of how easily I can access one on my desk while I’m doing watercolor painting or need to wipe up a spill.
Towels, everyone needs some, so I got some. The bag they came in was sturdy but easy open. The towels are stacked individually as opposed to interlocked like some brands. They are soft enough that they don't feel rough against my hands. Each towel was super absorbant and durable. I was able to wring them out a few times before they began to break down.
