Review & Giveaway – SKOY Cloths (1/16)


SKOY Cloth Review & Giveaway

I have had the opportunity to try SKOY Cloths over the past few weeks.

Because we go through a lot of paper towels, I was looking forward to seeing how these would hold up. The company claims that one cloth will outlast 15 rolls of paper towels. I haven’t used them that long, so I cannot confirm the claim, but the one cloth I have been using has held up well during the last two weeks I have used it.

What I like:

- Very absorbent – supposed to hold up to 15x its weight
- Can be sanitized in the microwave or cleaned in the washer and dryer
- Size isn’t too big or too small
- 100% biodegradable, natural and re-usable – made of natural cotton and wood-based cellulose pulp; chlorine-free product using water-based colors and inks. Independent composting test showed the SKOY cloth broke down completely within 5 weeks.
- Use anywhere you’d use paper towels
- Save on paper towel cost and waste

What I don’t like:

- Microwaving may kill the germs, but it won’t clean them. For extra messy spills, I still prefer paper towels so I can toss them quickly. If I used SKOY for every mess, the cloths would be in the washing machine every day!

Buy them

I saw these at Sunflower Markets for around $7 for a three cloth pack or you can buy them for $6.99 at Amazon.com.

Win a 3-pack!

SKOY sent me two sets of their cloths – one to try and one to send to a lucky reader. Please note: The colors of your cloths will be different than what is shown above.

    I want to try SKOY cloths because I have been baking alot lately and using alot of paper towels. These are cute and would cut down the cost of me cooking!
