Paper Towel Test
by Steven Babiak
We're on a roll
I took many different brands of paper towels and put them through different test.
First, I put a measured amount of water in a bowl and sunk the paper towel, till it could hold no more water. I then found the amount of water the towel soaked up.
Second, I did a softness test, where I asked people to rate how soft one towel was. I presented this and let people in the science fair try too.
I did this in 6th grade, but I didn't win. I would do it again just to remind myself of the results.Barry's Response
- I subscribe to Consumer Reports. That is the type of research they engage in and is very useful to the public. More so than your typical scientific project
The other criterion advertisers tout so famously is paper towel strength. At least that's what I have seen in most of the commercials.Search
