SKOY CLOTHS {Review & Giveaway} 2 winners

I love to use reusable, washable cloths for cleaning my house, so when I was given the opportunity to review SKOY cloth, I jumped at the chance.

My Review
I received a 4 pack of brightly colored, thick, pretty flower design, Skoy Cloths in the mail and immediately had to wipe up a spill in the kitchen.  The quality of these cloths are sturdy and can withstand any spill or scrubbing you have in mind.  My daughter spilled an entire 16 oz container of juice all over our kitchen table.  I quickly grabbed a Skoy Cloth and to my amazement, it absorbed the entire mess, just 1 cloth.  WOW!  I am completely impressed.  I tested myself for one entire week to not use paper towels (which happen to be a staple ingredient in our house) and use only the SKOY cloth.  1 SKOY cloth can replace 15 (yes 15) rolls of paper towels.  Think of the savings, you do the math.  Not only was I amazed by this product, but so was my entire family. 

We definitely have gotten the use out of this product and love it!

I also have used the SKOY cloth to clean my shower and it withstood hard, continuous elbow scrubbing.  I even washed my car and guess what - this cloth is still in tact and still works.  It states 1 SKOY cloth is good up to 5 weeks, though I have continually washed the cloth in either the dishwasher with a full load or in the washing machine with a load of laundry and it is still in tact and works.  I love this cloth!


From the company:
SKOY cloths are 100% biodegradable, absorbent, re-usable, European-made, clean and fun…  SKOY is a multi-use cloth.

The SKOY cloth is a fabulous, absorbent, biodegradable and natural multi-use cloth. Our re-usable earth friendly cloth is perfect in your kitchen, bathroom, and on most surface areas in your home or office. SKOY cloth can be used in place of your sponge, wash cloth or paper towels.

It is a European made product and 100% biodegradable because it is made from a natural cotton and wood-based cellulose pulp. SKOY cloth is a chlorine-free product using water-based colors and inks. After an independent composting test, SKOY cloth broke down completely within 5 weeks.

The SKOY cloth is a durable product due to the reusability factor and can last months. Using a SKOY cloth is equivalent to using 15 rolls of paper towels in an average home. With the high cost of paper towels, as much as $2 per roll, SKOY cloth is the obvious choice for your wallet and the environment.

The SKOY cloth has an absorption factor of 15x its own weight. As a result, producing the most superior cloth product available. Imagine using 15 sheets of good-quality paper towels at once… This is how a wet SKOY cloth will feel in your hand.

The SKOY cloth is long-lasting because of the wash ability feature. It dries quickly, so it is not a breeding ground for bacteria. Have you ever used your sponge, then smelled your hand and it reeked of horrible bacteria? That will never happen again if you microwave your SKOY cloth regularly. It is also dishwasher and washer/dryer safe. Cleaning your SKOY cloth will keep it healthy and germ-free. Please see Use & Care for instructions.
Buy It

I learned that an obscene amount of paper towels are used per year. I really like that the company was started by stay-at-home moms, it's inspiring!
