Foldable paper towel manufacturers like Amazon and Staples have been pushing customers to buy their paper towels in bags, rather than using a single large roll.
However, a new study suggests that a folded towel can make for an even more efficient way to wrap your hands.
The study, conducted by researchers at Stanford University and published in the journal PLoS One, found that a person using a folded paper towel could be able to fold a sheet of folded paper in under a minute, with the same amount of energy used by a normal paper towel.
In contrast, a regular roll of folded towels would take about two minutes to fold, the researchers say.
The paper towel, or roll, can be folded on its side to form a tube that’s just the right size for the person to use to wrap their hands, the study found.
But for those who are looking to fold the towel in a single motion, it’s important to know how the towel is folded, the authors wrote.
The researchers used a paper towel that was wrapped on the top and bottom of a plastic table, with a folding device that folds the paper towel onto itself.
The paper towel was then placed in a container, which was then filled with water and the towel was dried.
The team then measured how much energy was needed to fold one sheet of paper towels, compared to the amount of heat used to warm the towel, as well as the amount that was needed for the towels to expand, according to the paper.
For example, a normal towel would take 3.8 minutes to unfold, while a folded one took 5.1 minutes to fully expand.
However, if the paper towels were folded in half and stored at room temperature, they took 4.5 minutes to expand.
When the paper sheets were kept at room temperatures, they remained relatively cool.
The study also showed that a folding paper towel did not use much heat to expand and expand, compared with a normal roll.
In contrast, when the paper roll was folded on one side, it was actually used more heat, and that heat was then used to expand the paper rolls, the team said.
However the team notes that the study is just one way to look at the efficiency of paper towel folding, as there are other factors involved that make it an ideal tool for wrapping hands.
For one, the paper sheet folds and expands much faster than a normal rolling towel, which can take about 10 minutes to open, the group said.
And because paper rolls are less flexible than paper towels and can be damaged when folded on their side, the towel can also cause damage to the rolls.
