The workhorse of the kitchen, craft room and work shop, paper towels are flexible, durable and decidedly a first defense for both big and little spills. The unfailingly handy paper towel is a fairly new invention. It has gained in strength and functionality since its accidental inception more than 100 years ago.

Paper towels are basically a collection of wood, cotton or other plant that has cellulose fibers. Cellulose fibers are large molecules that are bound with many small molecules, which are all linked together to create a strong bond. The smaller molecules are sugar, which is the key behind how absorbent a paper towel can be. As liquid meets the paper towel, the water molecules cling to the cellulose fibers.
