SKOY cloth review and giveaway **CLOSED**

I got to try out the SKOY cloth and I am in love! I am sick of buying cheap or even expensive kitchen cloths and having them go stinky in no time at all. The smell never comes out either. They just end up in the trash filling up the landfill. Nobody feels good about that!


SKOY cloths were invented by two moms who had used something similar in Europe and wanted to bring the concept here to North America. The SKOY cloth is made from cellulose (derived from wood), and cotton. Using a SKOY cloth is equivalent to using 15 rolls of paper towels in an average home. I use my SKOY cloth for dishes, cleaning off the kitchen table, and counters. It stands up very well. Its tough enough to scrub dishes clean yet soft enough to wash off Brandons face after dinner. These cloths are also very affordable at only $5.99 for a 4 pack. That's cheaper than the cheap microfiber clothes I used to buy that ended up in the garbage not long after. The SKOY cloth can be used as a shop rag when your done with it and then finally can be composted. An independent company tested the SKOY cloth and it completely broke down in 5 weeks! That's better than a lifetime in the landfill for sure!

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.




The SKOY can be cleaned in your dishwasher and is washer and dryer safe up to 90°C (190°F). Another option to keep your SKOY cloth germ-free is to microwave it daily when damp for 1-2 minutes. This will also remove possible bad smell that is caused by bacteria. Remember your SKOY cloth must be wet when microwaving for best effect and to avoid risk for fires. The SKOY cloth will be extremely hot when removing from the microwave so please use caution and wait a moment. Immediately run under cool water to rinse.

If you try out the SKOY cloth and decide you love it too and want to continue to buy them you can subscribe (with a paypal account) and receive 8 SKOY cloths in the mail every three months for only $11.98 every three months! I wish I could do that in Canada, its US only. There are some retailers however for all you Canadians that sell SKOY cloths! One is The Healthy Cottage, they have a great ebay store!

We recommend that after your SKOY cloth has past its prime, it can be used as a rag for heavier cleaning. Chlorine-use is not recommended.
