Hi, after the short time I have had to experience the flannel un paper towels, they are absorbent , and great hand size for kitchen/cleaning. My concern, after only a few washings, the surge stitching is already unraveling. As the stitching comes off, unsure of the wear of the flannel. I appreciate the survey. The dish bar soap is a bit of a disappointment, one must hand dry to prevent the soap spots.
