My girlfriend and I were shopping in B.J.'S Warehouse and in need of paper towels. They had the Bounty basic which quite frankly is a piece of junk good only to throw away to be honest with all of you. They had also the Bounty regular which is ok. The one we purchased (the Bounty extra soft ) in our opinion is the better of the three. It has done pretty well picking up spills and in various types of cleaning projects. However I do have to also honestly say that we have both also have used the Viva brand of paper towels and the Bounty extra soft are not as strong as those. Don't get me wrong though we do like the Bounty extra soft and they were a very good deal at B.J.'S Warehouse. I did a little house cleaning last weekend and used almost an entire roll of these and they did a darn good job. The Bounty brand was the only choice of paper towels we saw at this particular store on that shopping day. Certainly an above average paper towel but we would probably have purchased Viva if they stocked that particular brand because we like the strength that they bring to various cleaning jobs ect.
