Received Ribis?

Question:

I lent a neighbor a closed roll of parchment paper which she then returned. It was a different brand but the same square footage so I assumed it was fine. However, I really liked her brand better. The size of each piece was easier to use than the one I lent her. Is there an problem here? Thank you

 

Answer:

Thank you for your question.

You are correct, assuming that the cost of both brands is basically the same, it is fine for you to use the parchment paper that you neighbor returned to you. The reason if because she didn’t give you back any more value that what she took, and because you didn’t ask her for this brand.

Best wishes
