Review: Skoy Cloths

Does your family go through a roll of paper towels every day? It seems like we go through a roll at least every two days, between my husband and me, and the two dogs.

I love using natural products around my house and kitchen, and what better way to do that then to add a product to replace those expensive paper towels! SKOY cloths are 100% biodegradable and natural, and are reusable and machine washable. These cloths take the place of paper towels and sponges. Can you believe that you could save 15 rolls of paper towels, just by using ONE SKOY cloth.

I love the cute colors and designs that the SKOY cloths come in. The package came with 4 SKOY cloths, tied neatly with natural-colored raffia. The colored cloths are assorted colors, so you never know which fun colors you will receive. The colors for me were green, purple, blue and orange with the traditional flower logo on the front. However, you can find lots of different print designs including inspirational text, paw prints, holiday prints or the traditional flower print.

The SKOY cloths were great to use in my sink because I use our traditional sponge with soap for washing dishes, and I'm always frustrated when I need to wipe the counters because the sponge is filled with soap. Usually, I just grab a paper towel and wipe. Now I use these SKOY cloths and keep our brand new kitchen (we just did a huge kitchen remodel!) nice and clean!

A super clean option instead of throwing your SKOY cloth in the washing machine is to microwave the cloth for 1-2 minutes. This keeps the cloth healthy and germ-free (and from getting stinky!) However, feel free to wash your SKOY cloth in the washing machine as well as they will hold up to many washes.

SKOY is offering a great fundraising program for schools. There is a special 6-pack of cloths which students sell for $10, and schools purchase from the company for only $6. This leaves a huge 40% profit margin for the schools. Since I personally know how other fundraisers work at schools, this is a great fundraising opportunity, and also includes environmental awareness.

Buy It:
4-pack: Mixed colors with flower print- $6.99
4-pack: White with flower print- $6.99
