Bamboo paper towels are trash!

This is a PSA that bamboo paper towels are absolute trash. They're supposed to be better for the environment, but they are the worst at actually cleaning up spills. I just spilled a cup of coffee and had to use an entire roll to sop up the mess. One. Entire. Roll.

I've never even heard of them. I appreciate the PSA just the same though. No one likes to feel duped after spending their money on a product.

Yes, they are awful! Unfortunately, I bought a ton of them on sale, so I'll be using them for a while. It's pretty much the only paper towel I've used that's pretty much nonabsorbent.

I've never seen them either. They don't even sound like they would work! I'm sorry you got suckered into buying them. I sure hope you didn't buy too many.

I've heard of them before, but not bought them. One version states that rayon, produced from organic and sustainably sourced bamboo, makes these paper towels are non-biodegradable. Another theory claims that they're biodegradable thus environment friendly.
