Q: Is it OK to use Bounty paper towels to clean my plastic eyeglass?

A: Most opticians do not recommend using paper products to clean plastic lenses. Paper comes from wood. Wood fibers, even though very soft, can damage sensitive plastics. Check with your optician to see what is recommended for cleaning your plastic lenses.

Q: What ingredients are in Bounty paper towels?

A: Bounty paper towels are comprised mostly of the following:

• Wood pulp and water – Raw ingredients found in nature. Our pulp is sourced from softwood and hardwood trees.
• Printing ink - Water based printing inks are used for decorative patterns only. No ink exists in the white version.
• Water based adhesive - Holds the 2-ply product together, the product to the cardboard core and keeps the end of the roll secure before the first use. These types of adhesives are used in various applications and are typical of materials used in food thickening and pharmaceuticals.
• Conditioners - Added to improve the overall experience of the product. For example, conditioners may improve softness or strength.

Q: Does Bounty contain animal derived ingredients?

A: All Bounty products may contain animal derived ingredients. Whenever possible, P&G uses plant-derived or synthetically-derived ingredients to substitute for animal derived materials (ADMs). In those cases where ADMs are necessary for product performance, P&G requires that all our suppliers provide ADMs that are safe and compliant with all regulations and industry guidelines.

Q: Do Bounty products contain gluten?

A: No, Bounty products do not contain gluten. There is no gluten in the adhesive used to hold the first sheets of the roll onto the cardboard core.

Q: Are Bounty paper towels made from recycled material?

A: All of our finished product inner cores, cartons, and paperboard packing in Bounty, Puffs, and Charmin are made from more than 95% recycled fiber and are recyclable where programs exist. More than 84% of this packing is post-consumer recycled.

Q: Can I use a Bounty paper towel as a coffee filter?

A: We haven't designed or tested Bounty for use as a coffee filter. The thickness and absorbency of Bounty are very different from that of coffee-filter paper.

Q: Why can't I find my favorite Bounty paper towel variety?

A: To find a store that carries your favorite Bounty paper towel variety, click on “Shop“ at the top of this screen, select the product you’re interested in, and then click the “Buy Now” button on that page. Because stores decide for themselves which Bounty paper towel varieties they carry, you might want to mention your preference to the store manager. It’s also possible that the paper towel you prefer is temporarily sold out or available only during a particular season.
