A few observations in this experiment were that the keys to a quality paper towel are absorbency, strength, and durability. I found these by watching commercials and interviewing paper towel users. If the expensive paper towel is a better brand than the less expensive, then it should be able to soak up more water, be stronger, and more durable. The purpose of this experiment is to prove which brand of towel is the best in absorbency and durability. The brands used during this experiment were Bounty(most expensive and most popular),Kroger (cheapest paper roll), and Brawny(not well known).
