From drying your hands to wiping down surfaces, paper towels are essential cleaning items during the coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately, their versatility has led to massive paper towel shortages. 

So if you're wondering where to buy paper towels, you've come to the right place. We're rounding up all the online stores where you can still buy paper towels and have them delivered to your home. 

As you shop for paper towels, keep in mind that some stores may limit how much you can purchase. Also, if an offer is sold out, check that same offer later or simply try a different deal. 

Editors' Note: In order to prevent paper towel shortages, we highly recommend that you buy only what you need for the short term. This will allow retailers to restock and for others to gain access to these products. In the event you need to venture out to a store, make sure to check out our guide on where to buy face masks.

    I just spent time checking all of the retailers mentioned in the article. They ALL have paper towels listed as "out of stock". What a useless article.

    Just keep in mind that when the article was written, the sources may have been good to go. Stock levels change dramatically as folks continue to hoard stuff and make it difficult for many to find sources to meet their needs.

    This article was written yesterday and paper towels disappeared weeks ago and haven't reappeared since, hence the conclusion about the article.
