    the only one i've found is member's mark (i.e., sam's club) brand paper towels as a substitute for bounty paper towels. not sure how they compare price-wise, but sam's gave away free rolls one day so i took one and used it and thought it worked better than bounty. so that's what i use now.

    i've heard there's some grocery store brand ketchup that is supposed to be better than heinz, but i'm skeptical.

    they might be fucking up america and, by proxy, the world, but they sell a legit paper towel product bro. what's a white guy to do -- NOT destroy the world and buy paper towels some other place? that seems like a lot of work to me.
