To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I really like this brand and any time buying other for a bit of price saving makes me sorry. I'd strongly prefer if Bounty returns to the "old" square format and fabric though. The idea of "durable" washing napkin is defeating the purpose of it. This fabric (or manufacturing process) leaves little stains (like oil stains) on the glass which the "old" did not when wiping glass or other shiny objects.
1.0 out of 5 starsbut it's not that good a value for the money

These are NOT the "huge" rolls that are sold in retail stores, they are about 2" shy in width of a real huge roll. Not sure how this was pulled off, but it's not that good a value for the money. VERY disappointed and will not order these again.
I've been a faithful BOUNTY brand paper towel user for decades, thus I was pleased to discover the availability of their towels in BOUNTY HUGE SIZE rolls. I like the option of not having to replace the roll so often, plus they required less space to stow away.
My Sept. 2018 delivery of BOUNTY HUGE TOWELS was surprisingly disappointing. I was surprised at the reduction in quality! These towels were visibly MUCH THINNER, ROUGH/SCRATCHY, and NOT AS ABSORBENT. For years I had become accustomed to BOUNTY's usual thick, tough, soft, absorbent quality and overall integrity of their paper towels, so I wondered if perhaps I had somehow erroneously received their BOUNTY ESSENTIALS level towel.
Why must manufacturers offer so many options for ONE SIMPLE PRODUCT? Just make a HUGE ROLL at TWO price points; basic 1 ply BUDGET, and PREMIUM 2 ply version. I'm certain that consumers will appreciate less fuss/confusion regarding size/cost comparisons, and as well, retailers will appreciate less complicated ordering and enjoy more shelf space in their stores.
UPDATE: The HUGE ROLL towels I received were thin and stiff only at the beginning of the rolls (about 6-8 half sheets when first starting the rolls). The remainder of the rolls seemed okay and without issue.
These are great paper towels. They come in large, dense rolls, so you don't have to replace as often. They seem to be reasonably priced. (Pricing seems to be as opaque for paper towels as for TVs on Black Friday, ir worse.) One star off because they're not certified sustainable. P&G, get off your butt! If you're turning ancient forests into paper towels, stop! If you're not, it should be straightforward to change over to using only wood from certified sustainable forestry. Sure it couldn't happen overnight. But it would make a huge difference, esp given that, well, it's P&G - not exactly a small player.
my first order was good and reasonable due to the crisis we are facing in this country due to the Coronavirus you can’t order again how amazon lets price gauging go on totally disgusting will never order this again from Amazon
These work like every other Bounty paper towel and are great but they arrived smelling extremely strange and almost gag-worthy. I left them all out to 'air out' for a week or so and they still reek. Not sure why but it leaves the smell on anything I wipe them on.
