This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for stopping by. The winner is Crystal. Congratulations!
While cleaning doesn’t necessarily excite me, innovative, eco-friendly cleaning products do. Have I told you about my extreme dislike for sponges? I think they’re gross. Those little grooves are certain to hide all kinds of icky microbes AND they fall apart when you microwave them. When I’m on a cleaning spree, I usually go through an entire roll of paper towels to avoid sponges and rags.
I don’t have to waste paper towels anymore thanks to a fabulous little product called the Skoy Cloth. When I first saw these in person, they screamed adorable to me. But these cloths are so much more than a pretty face. This multi-use cloth is so absorbent, it can absorb 15 times it’s own weight. It’s 100% biodegradable, natural, reusable, and machine washable. Here is a little more information from the site:
This European made product is 100% biodegradable and is made from a unique blend of natural cotton and wood-pulp cellulose. Skoy cloth is non-toxic, chlorine-free and made using water-based colors and inks.
This little cloth is fantastic. Wet it, squeeze it, use it. That’s it. Once you’ve cleaned with it, throw it in the dishwasher, clothes washer, or microwave. It’s definitely more absorbent than it looks and I love that one cloth can save me 15 rolls of paper towels! You can use them with water or a cleaning solution (eco-friendly of course!). Once it dried out (rather quickly might I add) it retained it’s shape and didn’t smell like a dirty sponge. And….it will break down completely in 5 weeks. I love the fun, bright colors and inspirational sayings. So you’re probably thinking that a fabulous product, made in Europe, designed to save you time and money and free your home from bacteria is going to at least cost you your Starbucks habit for a week. If you can believe it, one four-pack will cost you $5.99. When you consider that one cloth could last you weeks, months and even one year, you begin to see how valuable and smart a product like the Skoy Cloth really is.
