Curiously enough the first thing I like about this product is that it tears perfectly along the perforation, using just one hand. Most others fail in this regard. Secondly, it absorbs both water and oil equally well - something I noticed while wiping the oily gas stove top, and bring water sprayed glass table top. It also smells good, when you quickly want to dab your face while in the kitchen. I also used it for eye glasses and mobile display cleaning and there was no lint or fibre left behind. Overall, a very good buy that I am happy about.
