Skoy Cloths - Review & Giveaway

As you know, if you do any canning, you make a mess. After I can something, my kitchen looks horrible. My counters are covered in spilled sugar syrup from canning peaches, or tomato juice and seeds from making sauces, everything is a mess. It is horrible to try and clean up. I've used sponges, rags and paper towels. I was introduced to a product a few weeks ago that I now love. Skoy Cloths.



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 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.

When I first recieved my Skoy cloth, I was a little doubtful that it would clean my counters as well as my sponge did. It looked like a thick paper towel. After I wet the cloth, it felt like I was holding a bunch of paper towels. I started wiping down the sugar syrup that had spilled on the counter and was impressed. But really, a paper towel could have done that job with no problem.

 I moved on to the dinner table where we had eaten breakfast a few hours before. A had cereal and there was some that had dried onto the table. If you've ever had to wipe cereal that is dried onto the table - you know that is no easy task. I was really was amazed that the cloth didn't rip. It reminded me so much of a paper towel that I expected it to act like one also!

The SKOY cloth can last months. Using a SKOY cloth is equivalent to using 15 rolls of paper towels! Talk about economical! With the high cost of paper towels, SKOY cloth is the obvious choice for your wallet and the environment. Even if you get your paper towels for free (or close to it) you also have to think about the effect of all that waste in the landfill. SKOY cloths decompose in just 5 weeks!

The SKOY can be cleaned in your dishwasher and is washer and dryer safe up to 190 degrees F.

You can also just throw the SKOY cloth in the microwave daily WHILE WET for 1-2 minutes. This will remove possible bad smells caused by bacteria.

SKOY has offered TWO of my lucky readers a chance to win a four pack of SKOY cloth! (US Addresses only)
