Paper towels...

My mother usually has both oars in the water, but is totally off base on this one. We have decided to let "The People's Court" settle this one.
What is the best brand of paper towels?

I use whatever is on sale. Or if my hubby brings home a roll of those thick blue shop towels from work, I steal those.

I use 'em by the ton from Costco, including the blue shop ones (which are excellent and can be re-used, and re-used, and re-used), but I sooooo wanted to put my #2 pencil in the very last choice.

I buy the best bargain that I can find. I go through paper towels like water so I try to get as many for as little $$$ as possible.

I buy the best value, but only go through about a roll a month. Mostly, I use flour sack towels (I do a respectable load of those every 24 hours).

I'm puzzled though: What do paper towels have to do with the internet?
