    S817. Viva Paper towels, 12 sheets

    Recommended by Harvest Crittenden for wiping pen points and brushes:
    "I've used them exclusively for at least 8 years. They don't leave fuzz on the pen points or brushes."

    We have made these available for those outside the USA or in areas where this brand is not readily available. This is a small pack of 12 sheets for easy shipping.
