As a reference, CT sells one roll for $2.50 per 55 sheet roll at regular price, with lots available, so CostCo is currently cheaper.

Also, it's good for it's original purpose.. cleaning up spills in the shop. It's great for oil absorbancy and way more durable than your regular paper towel.

"Inserting two of these towels into an ordinary cotton mask brought filtration up to 93% of particles as small as 0.3 microns, the smallest their machine could test. Meanwhile, the cotton masks filtered 60% of particles at best in their tests, Schempf said.

Polyester hydro knit towels are readily available at hardware and automotive stores. The two brands they tested were ToolBox's shop towel and ZEP's industrial blue towel. Interestingly, Scott's pro shop towels, which are also made with a hydro knit fabric, didn't work as well, Schempf said."

Maybe also because this brand is not recommended for masks.

From what I read it sounds like they are saying that the blue shop towels are better than cotton, but that the Scott brand of blue shop towels don't work as well as the other two brands they tested, which is different than saying "not recommended".

Maybe getting down voted because it it posted under "Computers & Electronics > Other".

Car Towels <> Computers & Electronics ???

Exactly, so why not get one of the two that are highly recommended?

Shouldn't cut corners on Covid protection.
