With all of the research I’ve done recently on cloth diapers, I found myself wondering about other ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Skoy sent me some Skoy Cloth for review, and I was eager to try them out. The Skoy Cloth is a nifty little cloth, that comes in multiple colors and designs, that can take the place of paper towels, sponges, dishcloths, rags, and more. It’s made in Europe and is 100% biodegradable (when properly composted) because it is made of natural cotton and wood-based cellulose pulp. The Skoy Cloth is reusable (score), is made with water based colors and inks, is chlorine free, and is durable. They’re also cute. 😀
I put the Skoy cloth to test in my kitchen. I have two preschoolers, so we have messes galore. Using a Skoy Cloth is estimated to be equivalent to using 15 rolls of paper towels in the average home. We use microfiber cloths instead of paper towels, for the most part, but those are bulky and I have a basket full of them in the pantry. The Skoy cloth takes up much less room, and is more absorbent (it can absorb 15x its own weight).
Here’s what I like about the Skoy Cloth. It dries quickly, which reduces the risk of bacteria breeding (unlike the nasty sponge in the sink, that stinks after a week of use). Simply pop your wet Skoy Cloth in the microwave for 1-2 minutes, zap those germs into oblivion. ***Please Note- Skoy Cloth must be wet when microwaving. Allow to sit in microwave for a minute or two before removing, because it will be HOT.***
Skoy Cloth can also be used with household cleaners, but I’ve only used it with water so far. It can be washed in the dishwasher or laundered in the washer/dryer. It is important to clean your Skoy Cloth routinely to keep it healthy and germ-free.
The only thing I would change about the Skoy Cloth would be the availability of color options. I would like a pack of canary yellow and a pack of cobalt blue to match my kitchen.
