It's probably so that they aim for lintfree, but to achieve that it also becomes wetproof.


Then the brands I buy fail spectacularly to achieve that that. If I do so much as blow on a tissue, I can see particles flying off of it. I have a box sitting close to a wall, and the wall and surrounding area are covered in that dusty material.

I sadly can't ask my father anymore, but he used to manufacture paper and knew most of it from a technical point of view.


Interesting. Everybody has his own specialty I guess. It's not the sort of thing I've ever given much thought, but you're right, there's gotta be an expert on even such a topic out there.

He thought people were really stupid buying brown coffee filters that are first bleached and then coloured brown to make people believe it was environmentally friendly (Pulp for coffee filters is grey untreated)


Can't be much worse than the red coloring used to make meat look "better" and easier to sell than it otherwise would be.
