A Throw-Away Lesson

Recently, Kimberly-Clark launched its newest Kleenex-brand product: disposable hand towels for the home.  On its website promoting the new throw-away paper towels, Kleenex helpfully offers these “hand drying facts”, attributed to the Center for Disease Control:


  • Even if a hand towel is not visibly dirty, it does not mean it is clean.
  • Regular washing of bathroom hand towels does not ensure clean hands.
  • One-time use towels have been shown to be more hygienic.
  • Hand drying with disposable towels can help prevent the spread of germs.
