If You Care Reusable Paper Towels are made in a patented process from a three-dimensional blending of cellulose, non-GMO unbleached cotton and mirabilite – a natural mineral salt. In production, the mirabilite is washed out, leaving the remaining blend (70% cellulose & 30% cotton) extremely porous, which makes the towels extraordinarily absorbent. They can absorb up to 16 times its own weight in water. Unlike bamboo towels, If You Care Reusable Paper Towels do not leave fibers on the surface even after multiple washes. There is no better or more effective towel for wiping countertops in kitchens and bathrooms. If You Care Reusable Paper Towels clean streak free. They absorb liquids easily and release them with simple wringing. They are remarkably durable, tear and abrasion-resistant, and reusable for at least one week.
