How to make durable paper towels in a day?
Paper towels are becoming increasingly popular among the public, with Australians increasingly preferring the cheaper alternative of a stack of cheap paper towels to disposable ones.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has reported a rise in the use of durable paper towel, with the number of people using the products rising by almost 50 per cent in the past 12 months.
However, a recent survey found that a large majority of Australians still preferred disposable paper towels.
More than three in four people surveyed, 57 per cent, said they used disposable paper towel more than once in the last 12 months, up from just 30 per cent who used it once.
According to the survey, just one in 10 respondents said they had never used a paper towel before.
However, it has emerged that the vast majority of respondents, 78 per cent of respondents to the ABC/AAP poll, are satisfied with the quality of the products they use.
Despite the popularity of disposable paper, the ABS also found that the majority of Australian households still used a disposable towel at least once a week.
More than a third of respondents said that they had been asked to replace a used paper towel in the previous 12 months and a third said they have used the product for a similar period of time.
The ABS also asked Australians about the products that they would like to buy over the next 12 months as well as the products people are currently using.
Overall, more than half of respondents (54 per cent) said they would buy a new paper towel at some point in the future, while 22 per cent said they were considering buying a new towel.
But just over a third (33 per cent), or nearly half, said that their use of paper towels was at least five times or more in the month before the survey.
The survey found most respondents thought that the paper towels they used were safe to use and that they were good for their skin.
However the survey also found a significant increase in those who were using disposable paper to wash their hands, as well.
Almost two in three (34 per cent or 47 per cent for men and 30 per of women) who used disposable towels said they felt they were using them too much.
The survey also revealed that the use and quality of paper used in the workplace was one of the most important factors that influenced consumers’ purchases.
Nearly a third, or 30 per per cent (31 per cent men and 28 per of men) said that the quality and durability of their paper towels were important for their work, while 21 per cent cited work environment as the most influential factor in their decision to buy paper towels from a business.
