Huh? Sounds crazy, but it’s true… one Skoy cloth can take the place of 15 rolls of paper towels! These powerful little cloths have so many amazing qualities; I think I’m in love!
We all know we use far too many paper towels. Wipe down this, clean up that! Even if you use a recycled brand, it can get a little excessive (and expensive) and they get thrown away after only one use. Sponges are another household supply that is essentially useless. Everyone knows that, after even a short period of time, they get disgusting and flat-out “schtanky” (yes, that IS a word… when the stink goes BEYOND stinky!) And that smell just let’s you know that bacteria is growing in abundance!
So let me give you lowdown on Skoy Cloths (if you haven’t already heard of them!). These fabulous little cloths are 100% biodegradable because they are made from a natural cotton and wood-based cellulose pulp. They are chlorine-free, use water-based colors and dry quickly so they don’t breed bacteria and they can be used again and again and again. They’re essentially packageless because they come bound only by biodegradable raffia. (And they’re super cute too!)
When you need to give them a little refresher, just pop them in your dishwasher or microwave them while they’re wet for a minute or two. And when you feel like they’ve reached the end of their life, they can be composted (they break down completely in five weeks!) or disposed of. That’s a LOT more environmental than 15 rolls of paper towels, wouldn’t you say?
Do you want to give them a try? Well, here’s your chance, because the fine folks at Skoy have a four-pack they’re willing to share… leave a comment here saying you’d like to win and tell me how you want to use your Skoy cloths, or send a Twitter message that includes a reply to @momgoesgreen and a link to this blog. The winner will be selected one week from today’s post. (US entries only… sorry!)
Good luck! (…and by the way… you can tell me if you prefer the Skoy or the 60 rolls of paper towels, but if you think we’d actually send you 60 rolls of paper towels instead, you’ve lost your marbles! Come on! Give Skoy a chance!)
