    The need for water makes me wonder how this could be an emergency tool? Water seems more precious than the ability to wipe your whatever.

    Anyone else able to think of a usage for this? Interesting idea otherwise but I can't think of a need. My only thought is you could urinate on one but then what?

        Weeellll,,,It is harmful if swallowed so I think it is too dangerous for me to own!
        But I can think of many uses for this type item, but as you know cost is everything. At my last deployment as a wildland fire fighter the shower trailer was handing out super large (2X3?) paper shop towels as disposable shower towels.

          Why get anything disposable? Just buy a synthetic microfiber towel for drying. If you are thinking TP that's why God invented broad leaves!

            Diesel,

            Myself, for washing, I would just use real towels and wash cloths air-tight sealed in one of those large-size Hefty Zip-Locks. I would carry enough so that I have one set clean and one set washing in the wash pot and drying in the Sun at all times.

            As for paper towels and toilet paper, I would just carry a Zip-Locked bag of fast-food-type napkins. They're flat and fit easily in a glove box, suitcase, or BOB.

              Legionaire, Broad leaves are good too, as are the thin, paper-like bark of some trees.

              Just remember the old rule of woodsmen and Scouts everywhere: "Leaves of three, leave them be." I'm sure that Calomine lotion doesn't make a good enema.

              :D

                If I was to put my conjugatin' mind in gear I could come up with some instances where a disposable paper towel would be handy, superior to a cotton bath towel, as in decon proceedures.
                But my personal feelings are that this particular item, unless it is dirt cheap, is not 'that item', too small perhaps?
                These paper towels look like what you get onboard some super expensive yacht after you have landed a sea-trout or spilled champange on your silk jammies.
                Too me it is all a cost vs performance equation. In this case price is everything.
