Skoy: Eco-Cleaning Cloth Review and Giveaway
Jason recently brought to my attention this when he noticed that our grocery bill each week consisted of paper towels. My knee-jerk reaction to this news at first was defensive. I became instantly defensive of my consumption of paper goods, and immediately began to justify it. My main argument was that I had been using these disposable cloths since I was young and it was “easier” to use these instead of a more sustainable option.
As time has passed and I read more and more about environmental sustainability I realize that while I might at times disagree with Jason, this time he might be right. I began experimenting with different cloths and different textures to see if I could find something that would be as easy and versatile as paper.
Since I am a reviewer I am constantly searching for alternatives to the products that I use and since Jason had recently brought the paper towel to my attention I decided that would be my search. One of the first companies I came upon Skoy Enterprises Skoy Cloths.
When I reached out to the company they were kind enough to send me Skoy Cloths for review.
The Skoy Cloth is an alternative to the paper towels and cloth towels that are currently widely used. The Skoy Cloth is made in Germany and is available in many colors, which suits me really well since I love color. What I really liked about these cloths is that not only are they super absorbent, I was able absorb a little under 1/3 cup of fluid, although that will vary depending on the liquid absorbed.
Each cloth has a cute and simple flower on the front, adding a nice visual element to an otherwise plain cloth. The enclosed literature stated that one Skoy Cloth will replace 15 rolls of paper towel, and is dishwasher/washer safe. Plus when it runs it course and is used its life, it is biodegradable and compostable.
The main issue that I battle with constantly is my counter. I have a 5 1/2 foot counter top that requires multiple cleanings a day, since it is the main counter in our house. I worry about using anything scratchy because I do not want minute scratches in an otherwise perfect counter. I also avoid harsh chemicals because there are times, if I am aware or not, that our cats jump up on the counter. This cloth worked perfect using plain water and natural cleaners, I was able to clean my counter and keep it scratch free.
Over the years I have seen things similar to this that my father has bought at the annual county fair and they seem to always wear down and I end up using my trusted paper towels. I have been using this Skoy Cloth for almost a month now and it is still in great condition.
If you are looking for a paper towel alternative I have found your replacement – Skoy Cloth!
