This product is so useful, not only as a hand towel, but for other things too when paper towels may not be suitable. For instance, I use them to remove make-up using a face cream (in my case vegetable shortening.....yes, really); I also use them to wipe down the dog when he comes in from the rain; and they make great napkins as well. I use them for scrubbing the tub and shower, and applying furniture polish. Also for polishing silver. They are so sturdy and durable, yet soft feeling. I highly recommend them for many uses. The only thing I don't care for is the fact that you need to turn the box upside down over a towel rack for proper dispensing, otherwise if you use it upright, about half way through, they no longer pop up and you have to reach down inside or rip open the box to retrieve the rest of them. Great product though.
