Skoy Review & Giveaway

Skoy Cloths were started by two stay at home moms, Michelle and Karen, from Encinitas, California. They wanted to create a cloth that was more durable,stronger cloth that was ever used and also make it Eco Friendly. Here is a little bit more about the cloth:

The Skoy cloth is a fabulous, absorbent, biodegradable and natural multi-use cloth.  The 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. 

My Review:
I love that these cloths are easily sanitized in the microwave and much more cost efficient than disposable sponges and paper towels because they are machine washable! I love that! I don’t feel I have to worry about spreading germs and bacteria. Great to have around in the kitchen while cooking to quickly clean-up spills, without going through countless paper towels. They’re very good for cleaning pans with Teflon coating; they allow you to put as much pressure as you need without damaging or scratching. I only wish that there was a scrubbing option with these cloths to get tougher messes on other surfaces a little extra cleaning power. Overall I’m very glad I have these environmentally friendly cloths! Make sure to check out their online shop, facebook and twitterLondon Drugs  has just started carrying Skoy Cloths, so make sure to stop in to you local retail and pick up a pack to try!
