Default Kitchen roll as subtrate

Hi,
after looking at several photos of recently morphed newts i have noticed several of them look like they are being kept on kitchen roll.
I was wondering if any particular brands are used as i was a bit concerned about possible chemicals in the paper?
Maybe people who use it could recommend brands they use?

Thanks Martin

The best kitchen roll (paper towels, I'm guessing?) would be any unbleached paper. So the towels you can find that are brown in color would be the best as they are treated with far fewer chemicals. Stay away from anything with scents or any other "power."
