- Thickness of the paper normally varies from 17GSM to 45GSM
- Absorbency of the tissue more the thickness / bulk, better the absorbency
- Wet Strength strength of the paper is very important. Lower the strength of the paper, faster the disintegration, in water. Towels have better bulk, better absorbency and better wet strength to carry heavy duty activities like hand drying and surface cleaning.

Hand washing and hand drying solutions
Proper hand washing before and during food preparation is one of the best ways to prevent spread of food-borne illness. Hands are washed thoroughly with soap and then dried with paper hand towel to ensure that the bacteria do not transfer from one surface to another. There is a wide range of hand washing and drying solutions that could be adopted.
Use of the same cloth to clean surfaces and equipment that have held both raw and cooked food could transfer food-borne bacteria throughout food production and service areas.
Wipes are used for efficient, hygienic cleaning and wiping to ensure compliance with stringent hygiene standards. Today, it’s a business necessity to serve safe food. Such incidents could be prevented by using the right cleaning products and setting hygiene procedures in place.Abhay Kulkarni, Marketing-Manager – India Kimberly-Clark Hygiene Products Pvt. Ltd, India
