Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lilrabbit Disposable Drop cloth...though it will last if you are careful with it.
I've got plenty of heavy canvas drop cloths for painting, but they take up space between jobs. If you are painting the ceilings of your apartment and need to keep the carpet safe, this is the thing to buy. Move them around as you need to, then throw them away at the end of the job...probably you could recycle them like cardboard.
Also good to tape down to floors to protect during a construction project.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MacHic Better for light/spray painting or dry jobs
With no plastic backing, this really limits the drop cloths' usability. So be careful how and where you use it. I used to cover counter jobs when working on my cabinets in the kitchen. Better for dry or hard surfaces rather than using on top of upholstered furniture, stainable or soft items you don't want damaged. Also used to drape over some tables/wood furniture and my flat screens TV when bombing the house for fleas. Not sure I would really use this for regular (brush or roll on) painting especially with how sloppy I can be. Nice idea to have 2 cloths in a package and that they are safe for the environment. Not sure I would buy these again due to their limitations.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by parttimehack Light Spray Paint Duty Only
It's an okay product, but not impressed, in the future I will lean toward plastic. This product is paper, but perhaps not durable enough or limited in application. My recent experience with this product is that this paper cloth got wet with water spray from scraping a ceiling. I tried to let it dry out but it still tore when I folded it up. Even with the little amount of water spray, it does up to foot traffic, so there is a little bit of a "plus".

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheOne 9 ft. x 12.ft Paper Drop Cloth (2-Pack).
This 9 ft. x 12.ft Biodegradable Paper Drop Cloth (2-Pack), is a light duty paper cloth for a light panting or very light spray painting dust. This paper prop cloth it is not made for a heavy duty painting or other wet works. If you like to cover your stuff, just before you need to do some light spray painting, the price is right for this product. We just did that, and it was good. It absorbed and covered the paint dust with no problems.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Negriljerry 4 Stars?? Must've been different product
For only three or four bucks I didn't expect a whole lot. I thought to myself, well maybe it's the consistency of shopping bag paper... That would have been great. More like tissue paper meets wrapping paper, with a bunch of pre-cut slits to help it rip open when you walk on it. All this did was cost me time - the time it took to bunch it up and throw it away. 0 Stars.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JackinNH Fast and easy to use for a project.
I have several canvas clothes and they are great but they are also getting paint coated, crusty and bulky to deal with so I thought I would give thes Paper Drop Clothes a try. Nice. They worked well, protected area that I was working on. I need to replace some sheetrock on the ceiling where I had a leak from the bath above. This was great to contain the mess to one little area and made it easy to pick up all of the debris. I would buy again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dcmikez Great for empty rooms and covering floors
This is a good option if you need to cover the floor in an empty room. It is a large sheet of thin paper (lighter in weight than butcher paper) and will work well as a drop cloth as long as you don't have any large spills.
It is un-coated paper. It is pretty stiff too, so it doesn't drape easily and it will tear. I used it to drape over some counters and cabinets and though it did the job, a plastic drop would have been better for that purpose. It ripped with its own weight on a cabinet corner and I had to tape it up. It was better than plastic on the floor because it didn't move with every small breeze in the room, and could easily be shifted when needed.
Though this is paper, it's can't be recycled if you get a lot of paint on it (same applies for plastic drops).
Overall, use it if you need an inexpensive drop for a flat surface, otherwise look to something that will flex like plastic or cloth.
