A professional entertainer can never overlook clean-up, so Michele uses a trusted brand like Brawny® paper towels. For tough challenges, she likes their thickness and absorbency and especially their strength when wet. Note that Brawny® paper towels come in larger role size packs: new “Mega” roll size and “Big & Giant” roll items. Also, check out Brawny® Towels on Facebook and Twitter and look for product promotions this winter.
Have a great holiday season!
