You’re going to want to be sure you have a reliable paper towel to pick up after guests who make a mess, and leave germs in and out of your home. Here are the best paper towel brands and the crown goes firmly to name brands, not store brands.
The brand’s DuraTowel captured the #1 spot and was a recommended buy.

Switching away from the name brands, a couple of stores brands also made a decent showing…

The sizing here is 41 square feet per roll.
This Costco favorite came in right in the middle of the pack with a score of 61.
