If you're odd, you're in excellent company. I'm not brand-obsessed in the least...I buy most everything in the HEB or Hill Country Fair generic brand,
but some things are just worth the money to buy branded.
I don't use Viva...I've got seven cats and three dogs (all rescues) to clean up after and I use a LOT of paper towels...but I cannot stand Bounty.
They used to actually be "The Quicker Picker-upper", but now they're the "Mediocre Picker-upper But Only If You Use An Entire Freaking Roll", and that
simply will not do...I am a consummate neat freak and I'm constantly cleaning.
I buy Sparkle paper towels because they're decent quality and I can get a huge pack of them for less than six bucks. I'm sure they're even less
expensive at The Evil Empire, but I won't shop there.
The only thing that irks me is sometimes they're only available in "Select-a-size", and I do not want to make a selection. When I pull those off the
roll, they typically come off in pieces. Who the hell actually uses a piece of a paper towel anyway? Screw that noise...I'll buy something else if I
run into that situation.
That's how I found out how much Bounty sucks, actually. HEB had the stupid aforementioned perforated Sparkle, so I bought Bounty Basics instead. I'll
never buy them again, that's for sure.
