Skoy Cloths Review and Giveaway

What's a Skoy Cloth?

I said the same thing to myself a few weeks ago. 
I have recently been trying to find ways to be more "green", and one thing on my list was to reduce my kitchen waste. 

So, when I was doing some research, I came across Skoycloth.com 

Picture of SKOY cloths in orange, blue and yellow

The company was created by 2 stay at home moms who wanted to reduce landfill waste. 
They were shocked when they found out that paper towels contribute to 2.5 MILLION pounds of waste a year. 

Skoy Cloths are 
  • 100% Biodegradable!
  • Absorbent
  • Reuseable
  • European made
  • Clean
  • Fun!


1 Skoy Cloth is like buying 15 rolls of paper towels! That's alot of money, and waste!

When I received mine ( a 4 pack is $6.99!) 
I decided to try them right away, I mean if I could start saving money and reduce waste immediately, why wouldn't I?



The first thing I noticed was how absorbent they were, I tested it on some juice that Riley spilled on my table, and the cloth easily soaked up about 6 oz of juice. 

The next thing, is that when I rang out the Skoy Cloth in the sink, it rang out almost completely DRY! I mean, it felt damp, but was definitely ready for another use. 

It was 100% dry within about an hour on my kitchen counter. 

You can microwave your reuseable paper towel   
for 15 seconds to keep it germ free. 

I am definitely excited to be using these, knowing how much waste I am saving, and how inexpensive they are, here in Florida a roll of paper towels (the cheapest kind available at walmart) is .88 cents (15x.88=$13.22x4=) 
That means for the same use, I would spend $52.00, compared to a 4 pack of Skoy cloths for $6.99. 

The 4 pack I bought will easily last me a year!

You can purchase yours here.

  16. I line dry laundry year round (I live in north Texas though, so it's fairly easy)..we don't use paper towels at all.. if I am mopping the kitchen, I'll do the bathrooms with the same water when I am done...but not the other way around...LOL..we compost, we recycle, we upcycle..we actually enjoy hunting for the odd bit of cast off furniture, etc and refinishing it.
