I know I have mentioned it before but we are making a conscious effort to make our home more “green” and environmental friendly. With that being said we have drastically cut back on the number of disposable items we purchase and use including our cleaning products and we now no longer purchase paper/plastic plates, bowls and silver wear. I am very picky when it come to my house staying clean and to be honest my husband says I’m way to picky but I have my standards and I’m going to stick with it! Since we decided to go “green” I have quit using paper towels when cleaning but I have also found the problem that using a dish towel over and over doesn’t really seem that “clean” to me so when I was given the opportunity to review Skoy Cloths, I was really excited and couldn’t wait to try them out!
About Skoy Cloths (taken from website):
SKOY cloth is a ...
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.
The cool and unique designs will make cleaning fun!
We were sent a 4 pack of Skoy Cloths to review and as soon as they arrived and I took them out of the packages, I was instantly amazed at how uniquely cute these cleaning cloths actually are! I just love the bright colors and “Bug” immediately claimed the yellow one as his cleaning cloth!
I have been using these 4 Skoy Cloths ever since February of this year and I love them! There is no beating around the bush when it comes to these cleaning cloths! I love that they absorb so much liquid and makes cleaning up my little man’s spills and messes quick and easy. I have used these cloths for just about every household cleaning routine that I could think of….from doing dishes, cleaning the kitchen countertops, cleaning the kitchen appliances and just about every surface in the bathrooms. I have been simply amazed at the wide uses available for Skoy Cloths, and best of all they are dishwasher, washer and dryer safe so I know they are always clean and germ free when I go to use them. I also love that when I go to clean the most important surfaces in our kitchen, like the ones we put our food on, I can quickly sanitize the cloth by placing it in the microwave for just a few seconds so I know I get that deep clean my family needs!
We love our Skoy Cloths and we would highly recommend every household, “green” or not to pick some of these amazing cleaning cloths up! They are simply a must have for any busy household to keep it clean and germ free. My little sister recently got her own apartment for the first time and I talked her into ordering a set of Skoy Cloths and she too loves them, she has never really cleaned anything in her whole life and she says that she would much rather clean with the durable Skoy Cloths than a paper towel that falls apart and makes more of a mess!
If you are looking for the perfect “green” cleaning product to add to your cleaning arsenal pick yourself up a set of Skoy Cloths, I know you will fall in love with them just like we have! These would also make a wonderful housewarming gift for a new couple or a recent graduate starting out on their own!
