I bought these Bounty Basic Paper Towels instead of the better and more expensive Bounty 2X More Absorbent. Never again will I buy the Basic again for home use. First of all, they remind me of the Mardi Gras paper towels that crumble very easily and smear the windows when cleaning with Windex, and does a poor job of absorbing spills. Also, the Basic is very thin due to being 1-ply instead of 2-ply like the 2X More Absorbent. Like the old saying goes: "You get what you pay for." In my opinion, I would only purchase the Basic for the kitchen area and break room in the office, and the 2X More Absorbent for home use.
