Advantages: Cheap but good
Disadvantages: Nothing much
Tesco make a pack of one hundred simple white paper napkins. They are fully disposable and are just one ply. They are a little bit on the thin side in my opinion, because of being just one ply but to be honest for just 48p what more can you expect?
They are grouped and wrapped up together (stacked) in see through cellophane which is easy enough to take off, so long as you have a pair of scissors handy. We once bought some and tried to open them in the car for the little lad. We were in a hurry as he was eating an ice cream on a very hot day and all the ice cream was running down his hand and working its way up his arm - too late. We couldn't get the pack open on time and the result was a sticky mess. Opening the pack is propbably the only downside.
We have a half a pack left under the kitchen cupboard and last time we used them was for his birthday party which was held outside on a bouncy castle. We used the napkins for all of his friends to wipe their sticky fingers after they had eaten their birthday tea and we also used them to wrap slices of his bithday cake up to give to his friends to take home afterwards. We had to use two napkins though because as I say, they are on the thin side and it soon became apparent that the cake was starting to ooze out through the thin tissue.
We also use them to mop up spillages. They are absorbent, and reasonably good to use. They are not the best but then what do you expect for 48p? We also use them for family barbeques and they are great for use ourdoors on these occasions for guests to wipe thier greasy fingers on.
They are plain white and measure about ten by ten and have a little plain embossed pattern on each one.
Cheap and cheerful and certainly recommended.

Summary: I will continue to buy these as they are good value for money
