Skoy Cloth Review and Giveaway!

I recently got to try out the SKOY cloth and I love them! I am tired of my kitchen washrags getting stinky. It seems like they get stinky within a wash or two of buying them! The smell never comes out either.

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.
These cloths are very affordable at only $5.99 for a 4 pack. The SKOY cloth can even 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!




They came packaged so cute! They are stiff when you first get them, but as soon as they are wet, they lose that stiffness.
I used my SKOY cloth for dishes, cleaning off the kitchen table, counters, even to clean the microwave out! It holds up very well, and does a good job cleaning! And I love the fun colors!
They are super easy to clean too, you just throw them in the dishwasher or the washing machine!

How would you like to try some for yourself? Skoy has generously offered two readers the chance to win a pack of 4 cloths each!

I learned that their name comes from a Swedish word that means: “just for fun”!

I also have lived in Europe and have used cloths like this and love them!

I learned that the factory that produces the SKOY cloths is environmentally friendly too by recycling byproducts and purifying water used in production for other uses. Cool!

I love that they are bio-degradable, but also washable. More than anything I am just glad they don't stink or hold the smell of things you clean (i.e. dishes).

I would love to try these out!
