Paper towels, whether used in your kitchen or bathroom, can be found all over the house.
But if you have a place to store them, it can make them a little less convenient for those in the home.
A few days ago, a couple in the Indianapolis suburb of Greenwood, Indiana, decided to get rid of paper towels from their house because they weren’t seeing much use.
They decided to keep the paper towels for a month in the garage.
When they opened up their garage, they found a pile of paper towel packets on top of their shelves.
“We didn’t expect to see that much,” one of the owners told WTHR.
The couple said the packets were all over their garage.
“It was so weird.
We thought maybe they’re going to throw away the paper towel bags, but we didn’t think anything like that would be going on,” the owner said.
“I have a lot of respect for them, but I just didn’t feel like they were taking advantage of me.
I didn’t know how I could take advantage of them.”
While many paper towels are disposable, the owners of the garage found the packets that were being sold were made of synthetic fibers.
“They are very, very cheap, but they do not last long,” the owners said.
So they were worried they would have to use up their paper towels by the end of the month.
“They’re the last thing you want when you’re in the middle of the winter,” said the owner.
The owners also found that the paper bags they found in the yard were in bad condition.
“The packets were just completely ripped.
They were so old.
They weren’t broken, but you could see the fibers that were in there were just starting to crack.”
In a Facebook post, the Greenwood owners said that they have been dealing with the packets for over a week.
“When we first opened the garage, we were expecting that the packets would be gone in a day,” the Facebook post reads.
“But instead, they were there.
We were so happy that we decided to have them stored for a few more days in the carport.”
