A good rule of thumb when it comes to paper towels is that if you can buy it, you should buy it.
And when it does come in handy, you may be surprised by how quickly it starts to smell like your sweaty feet.
That’s because the smell of sweaty feet, when combined with other odors in the environment, can affect the quality of the paper towels you buy.
It’s a problem that’s especially acute in a world where many people are exposed to pollution, and where people are often left with little control over the quality and smell of their personal care products.
For the last two years, Consumer Reports has been tracking the odors that people are reporting on paper towels and found that they are particularly prevalent in places like the East Coast.
And the bad news is that the more times you’ve used paper towels the more likely you are to have a problem.
It could also be that people who are particularly sensitive to the odor of sweaty legs are more likely to report it to Consumer Reports, which is why it’s important to buy paper towels in smaller quantities, says Matt Lantz, Consumer Affairs manager for consumer protection.
“The smell is an important factor in a paper towels purchase, but it is only one factor,” he says.
The scent of sweaty or burnt paper towels can be easily distinguished from other paper towels when the towel is wet, says Lantz.
“It doesn’t smell like a real paper towel,” he explains.
In fact, the smell can be stronger if the towel has been wet, but the more the towel dries, the weaker the smell.
The smell of burning paper towels has been reported to be especially strong in areas where there is high levels of urban smog, such as in the South and Southwest.
The odor is also stronger in places where paper towels are stored, Lantz says.
If you buy paper towel for a particular occasion, it’s wise to take it to the cleaners to try to wash the scent off of it, he says, but if the smell isn’t noticeable, it probably won’t affect the paper towel in any way.
