Absorbency of Paper Towels Across Different Brands
The comparison of paper towel brands in their capacity to absorb water was investigated. A one-way
ANOVA and Tukey’s test was done with the collected data. It was found that Kirkland’s paper towels on
average absorb significantly more than both Viva and Sparkle (p < 0.05 for both comparisons). Bounty,
which performed similarly to Kirkland, absorbed significantly more than Viva as well (p < 0.05). Viva
and Sparkle performed similarly (p > 0.05). Bounty did not outperform Sparkle significantly (p > 0.05).
Kirkland is perhaps the most optimal and safe choice for consumers which outperformed the most brands
or at worst performed similarly, with Bounty following after
