I would prefer Bounty if it was the cheapest. All my messes end up in the sink anyway

Bounty - I just stock up on 3, 6 or 8 roll packs when they are on sale, so it's as cheap as anything else.

well, color me curious - you and mudbug have both mentioned these - what kind of flour are you buying that comes in cloth bags? Or is this just a kind of kitchen towel?

subfus: they are a kind of towel, made from soft cotton material that resembles flour sacks of old. very soft, thin, light, and usually large size. You can get them at Wms Sonoma as well as at my local grocery. I love 'em and ditched all those terry ones I used to use.

I buy the prettiest! my favourite has winnie the pooh on it, my next favourite is the Forever Friends with teddy bears. At the moment our kitchen towel has vegetables on it, not very cute, but never mind (dh bought that one!)

Scott, they don't leave lint when we french drip the coffee through them, and they allow the water through at just the right pace! The people who use french drip pots here swear they're the only way to go, don't use the cloth filter cause I don't like washing it. So I just buy the Scott brand and use them for everything.

I voted for Viva. We use that for all around kitchen stuff. And we use a lot. But for the cleaning purposes I have always preferred bounty WHITE.
