Save with Skoy & a Giveaway!

Do you ever get sick & tired of constantly replacing your paper towels & dish sponges? Given we replace paper towels more frequently than a dish sponge, but you wish you had something more practical that didn't always need replacing?


Skoy Cloths (derived from Skoj, meaning "just for fun") are European made reusable & biodegradable cleaning cloths that can replace 15 rolls of paper towels, if not more! (And they really are fun in their different colors & available prints.) The kind folks from Skoy were kind enough to send me a 4-pack, along with a Skoy Scrubber (we'll talk about that in a bit) for this review & I have to say, I'm in love.

Can you tell that I've been using this Skoy cloth for months?! Check out this pic on Instagram!

Made from all natural materials (natural cotton & wood-pulp cellulose), a Skoy Cloth is the gift that keeps on giving. So to speak, anyways. (I've been using mine for a few months now & you can barely tell!) Just about everything you would use a paper towel for, you can use a Skoy Cloth. They can also be used to replace a dish sponge, kitchen rag & if you run out like I did one day, a napkin.


A Skoy Cloth is so simple to use & care for too. Just wet it, wring out the excess water & use it. I was amazed at how well it absorbs (15x it's weight), as it cleans. With a sponge or paper towel, I would always have to go over my kitchen counter with a rag to dry it. With the Skoy Cloth, it leaves very little behind which evaporates in no time. I also love washing my dishes with them, Not that I love washing dishes, but you get the point. And to clean the Skoy Cloth is easy. Just toss it in the dishwasher or washer & lay it out to fry (to avoid any shrinkage since it is made with cotton). Or if you just want to get the germs out of it, wet it & microwave it for a minute or two (don't forget to wait a minute before getting it out).


Then there's the Skoy Scrub! Made from cotton & non-toxic hardeners, I haven't found a surface yet that this doesn't work wonders on. It's safe to use on my dishes, glass cook-top stove & even my dining room table (to name a few). Not to mention that it requires far less elbow grease than I'm used to using with other scouring pads & scrubbers. And I love the fun designs & colors they come in! Better yet, just toss it in the top rack of the dishwasher to clean it.

Another reason to love Skoy (aside from saving insane amounts of money) is that they also have a school fundraising program!
