Why does paper towels absorb water so well?

    Because they are made up of cellulose fibers that consist of many small sugar molecules. These sugar molecules are key to absorbing liquids; when the towel gets wet, the water molecules cling to the cellulose fibers. The capillary action created by the spaces between the fibers in paper towels also aid in absorbing liquid.
