SKOY Cloth Review and Giveaway



SKOY cloth was started by 2 California stay-at-home-moms who wanted a quality cloth that was also environmentally friendly.


SKOY cloth is a reusable and biodegradable (made from natural cotton and wood based cellulose pulp) cloth that is meant to take the place of paper towels (which can be super expensive and used only once!) You can use these in place of paper towels, wash cloth or sponges and are much healthier since they dry quickly lessening the chance of bacteria breeding.


When I got my SKOY cloths in the mail I had a hard time using them because they were so cute with a flower design on each; I did decide to use one for each room of the house and one for the floor. So, I labeled them with 'bathroom', 'kitchen', 'laundry room', and 'floors' and got started cleaning for my baby's arrival. I was very impressed with the quality of the cloths - I have been using one to hand scrub my floors for over two months and there is still no sign of wear! I use the other three to wash counters and cabinets so I expect them to last quite awhile. For washing they suggest putting it in the microwave, dishwasher, or washing machine. I have put them in both the microwave and the washing machine and both came out clean, and when you wet it and put it in the microwave it steams and is excellent for giving your microwave a quick clean.


I absolutely love the convenience of the SKOY cloth and feel like I am helping save the earth everytime I grab one instead of a paper towel!

  4. Who ever thought that we would add our cleaning towels to our compost? Great idea...
    I also like that they can go in the dishwasher, load it, wipe the kitchen down, add the towel, and START!
