The unpaper towels are super absorbent 100% cotton and are serged around the edges for a clean finish. You can expect these work-horses to last for a very long time. Use them to mop up any spill, dry your hands, or for any typical use of paper towels. I throw mine in the washer and dryer with any and all loads of laundry (they take up very little space), because no special care is required. Finished size is 11 x 12 inches, and is made from a high quality birds-eye weave diaper fabric. Try them and love them, or send them back for a 100% refund.
