I've become increasingly frustrated with paper towels lately. I mean, I don't want to pay upwards of $2 per roll, so I buy the cheaper brands thinking "It's just a paper towel. We're going to throw them away anyway. Literally throwing away my money..." Then I get home to find that you really do get what you pay for, and I end up tossing 'em out even quicker than I would with the $2 brand. Great. I can't be the only one this happens to. There has to be a solution!
Then Skoy came into my life, and it will never be the same! Skoy is a super-absorbent, 100% biodegradable, reusable, natural sponge-like square of awesome. These little cloths are the real deal! Each Skoy cloth (7"x7") takes the place of approximately 15 rolls of paper towels. That's right, fifteen. That's $30 worth of expensive paper towels, all the while being reusable and creating no paper waste.
So what is this magic fabric made of? All-natural cotton and wood-based cellulose pulp, unbleached, and dyed and printed with water-based ecofriendly inks. The cloths are completely degradable, breaking down in just about 5 weeks via composting. But there's no rush to throw out your Skoy cloths. Each cloth, when properly cared for and cleaned, can last for months! Just toss our cloth in your dishwasher or washing machine, then follow up with a bout through the dryer or hang dry. For a quick disinfecting, wet your Skoy cloth and microwave it for about 1-2 minutes. We now do this once a day and have not had a single stinky sponge issue in nearly a month and a half!
I've absolutely fallen in love with Skoy, and so far we've only needed to use one of the four I received. The best aspect about Skoy is how very versatile the cloths are. They have thus far replaced virtually all of our paper towel use, and I'm slowly phasing out our single sponge used for dishes. The Skoy surprisingly does just as good a job of scrubbing even the toughest places, like our range top (albeit, with a little more elbow grease put in.) And there are so many more uses besides the kitchen! Have a potty-training child or dog? Keep one or two designated "oops" cloths around for accidents. Always reaching for a wet wipe or paper towel when wiping messes off your little ones? Skoy's great there, too. Just about everyone I can think of can benefit from Skoy in some way.
While I wouldn't recommend getting your girlfriend or wife a big basket full of cleaning supplies as her only gift this Christmas, I definitely suggest adding a pack of Skoy to her stocking! It's the perfect mom-to-mom gift, because only we really understand the meaning of the term "multi-use." Also, consider gifting these to any new mom or new couple, as these are indispensable!
