SKOY CLOTH REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

Have you been looking for an eco friendly alternative to using paper towels? I know I have!! Most people dry their hands with them and use them to wipe up spills. Have you ever noticed how many paper towels it takes to wipe up a cup of spilled milk? Since The Munchkin' Man has been potty training, we have been going through so many paper towels. Although I will continue to clean up his little "accidents "with them, I needed to find a product that I could use through out the house. Each and everyday I try to find ways that our family can be a little more green. While searching online for paper towel alternatives, I found Skoy . Skoy is a fantastic company that makes absorbent, biodegradable and natural multi-use cloths. I contacted Skoy cloth and they sent over four wonderful cloths for us to try.


As soon as they arrived and I opened the package, I was ready to give them a try. The company name comes from the Swedish word Skoj which means " just for fun." Looking at these adorable cloths, that is the perfect name. The Skoy cloths come in so many fun colors and have a flower and even inspirational sayings on them. I ran the Skoy cloth under the water and it was ready to go. I was shocked how much water the cloth actually held. I put one in the kitchen and one in the bathroom to wipe up the counter tops. The cloths worked great. I found myself using them for everything- from just drying my hands, cleaning small cups, and wiping the table down after dinner. The Munchkin' Man used them to wipe his place mat off and then had to use it as a hat also..lol















The features of the Skoy cloths that love the most are that they:

*have an absorption factor of 15x own weight

*can be used in so many other rooms in the house besides the kitchen

* 100% biodegradable (can be composted when done using)

*colorful and have fun designs

*can be washed in washer, dishwasher and sanitize in the microwave

*reusable unlike its paper towels that end up in the landfill


I love the Skoy cloths and have been telling everyone about them. I even gave my mother one to use, although I wanted to keep them all to myself.

I am impressed by the "15x its own weight" holding capacity! that is even better than the prefolds I am using now to clean up spills, it can take two of them to clean up a cup of juice, but it sounds like it would only take one of these!

I like that they dry quickly so they are not a breeding ground for bacteria and that they are washable.

I like that it is a re-usable earth friendly cloth. I am trying to pare down by use of paper products and this looks like it would help.
