Paper towels are also known as kitchen paper and are an absorbent towel which is made from paper instead of cloth. They are disposable and are intended to be used only one before being thrown away. How they work, is that they soak up water as they are loosely woven that enables water to travel between them, even against gravity.
They can be packed individually as stacks of folded or held coiled. They also come in rolls.
