11 highlights of 1907 - which paper towel is the most absorbent
2 Invention of paper towels were invented by a cunning teacher in Philadelphia who found a way to prevent her students from catching a cold for a long time.
Instead of sharing the same towel, she cut some paper into a separate square with scissors.
Scott paper, who is already working on toilet paper, learned the story.
Fortunately, the company has a railroad car full of paper that is rolled too thick to be used in the bathroom.
Arthur Scott came up with a way to replicate the teacher's design on a larger scale.
It wasn't long before he sold them as a product called Sani --Towel.
