Red Dye on white cabinets

I bought a package of the 8 count Bounty Basic. The 8 pack was on sale and I thought that it would be nice to have some color instead of white. Luckily it was my husband who sprayed a little bit of cleaner on the towel and the red from the paper towel was all over the cabinet.

I purchase Bounty Paper Towels in the 6 or 8 roll package. I usually purchase them when the towels are on sale. In the past the paper towels were great to use. Several months ago I made a purchase, put them in my pantry. I opened the towels a week ago. I had to dry my hands, my hands were ruined with the smell from the paper towels. You could even smell the odor on the towels when the towels were dry. I'll admit I do have a very sensitive nose. My daughter has a pet mouse in her home and the dirty mouse cage is what the towels smell like. Has the paper formula changed? The towels smell like they are made from some kind of corn formula. I can't stand wiping up anything with the smelly towels. Sale or no sale I won't purchase the towels again due the smelly order emitted from the towels!

poor quality

the past several times I purchased bounty paper towels , the rolls are supposed to be 2 ply, but they have been paper thin single sheets. I THINK I WILL CHANGE TO VIVA . I HAVE BEEN BUYING BOUNTY FOR OVER 10 YEARS, BUT THE QUALITY HAS GONE DOWN HILL.

bounty Paper Towels

My son just purchased a large bulk of paper towels at Cosco and they smell like urine or dirty socks. We can't use them for napkins because of the smell..My whole family noticed the foul odor too.

The Dye in the paper towels

I use my paper towels for drying my fruit after washing it - cleaning my sinks - cleaning messes and have never had a problem with my Bounty Paper Towels until today. I was cleaning my sinks with the new blue printed Bounty Paper Towels and the ink off the paper towels stained my white kitchen sinks. I was using a spray household cleaner. I grabbed my Comet Powder but even that did not get all of that blue dye out of my white sinks.

After this experience I am afraid to dry my wet fruit with the blue printed paper towels - afraid I will be eating the blue dye. I purchased an 8 pack which had 2 green printed rolls and 6 blue tinted rolls. I have 4 more of the blue dyed rolls in my cabinet and I don't know what to do.

Are you going to replace them for me? Also, could I have been poisoned by the blue dye since I have evidently been eating it too.
