I am always on the look out for great eco-friendly products and I am so excited to tell you all about my most recent discovery! The Skoy Cloth!
Skoy Clothes were developed by two stay at home moms, Michelle and Karen, after looking for a cleaning method that was easy and also eco-friendly. While in Europe in the early 2000's, Michelle discovered a wonderful cleaning cloth that exceeded all her expectations! After searching for something similar in the United States and having no luck, Michelle and Karen tried to figure out a way to get this product to U.S. customers. Thus the Skoy Cloth was born. Decorated with fun designs, they certainly live up to their name (Skoj, pronounced Skoy, in Swedish means "just for fun).
- Skoy Cloth is 100% biodegradable. It is made from a natural cotton and wood-based cellulose pulp and an independent composting test showed that Skoy cloths break down completely in five weeks.
- Skoy Cloths can absorb 15 times their own weight making them ideal for wiping up spills
- One Skoy Cloth saves 15 rolls of paper towels on average
- A four pack is only $5.99- a lot cheaper than paper towels considering the Skoy cloth is washable and reusable.
These clothes are absolutely fantastic!!! I have been using them for about a week now and I love them. I use them for cleaning the bathroom, kitchen, windows, basically anything that can be cleaned with paper towel, I now clean with the Skoy Cloth! I will never use a paper towel again!!!
I love that the Skoy Clothes can be cleaned in the dishwasher or the washing machine, and also put in your compost bin! Another way to clean your Skoy Cloth is to wet it and place in your microwave for 1-2 minutes (make sure its always wet first when doing this)...but be careful, it will be hot when removing from the microwave!
When using the Skoy Cloth I felt that it cleaned up messes very well and yet I can also use it to wash my children's faces because its so soft! Not only do these clothes come with adorable floral designs, but you can also get them with holiday prints, and inspirational sayings on them too! My only complain is that I cannot buy these in Canada! So I better make room on the credit card, because I will for sure investing in these in months to come!
If you are looking for a way to include "green" living in your home, this is definitely a very easy and economical way to do it! I highly recommend this product and give it a HUGE thumbs up!!!
