I use these in the Amazon Basics 24 sheet Cross Cut shredder. I have shredded many thousands of pages, 20 at a time. I insert one of these sheets every other time I empty the shredder. The before and after difference is amazing. No mess, no fuss, no oil stains, no errant shreds. Just load a sheet in the shredder slot and forget about it. Your pages to be shredded will go ever willingly to their demise.
