Who hates wasting paper towels? I do. Who feels like your harvesting germs in a sloppy wet sponge that you reuse all the time? I do. So I think I may have found the perfect answer to this! SKOY Cloth is an earth friendly cloth and one SKOY cloth saves 15 rolls of paper towels!! Not 15 paper towels, but 15 ROLLS of paper towels! They are also 100% biodegradable, reusable and natural. I had received a 4 pack, which on their website you can purchase for $6.99. It's so much cheaper than buying 15 rolls of paper towels, even at the dollar store!
Above you can see the pretty vibrant colors I got. They come in randomly selected colors if you buy the 4 pack from their site. They are all pretty though so any color I would have liked! Even my puppy Mila was interested to see how these cloths would work compared to the everyday paper towel and sponge. So I decided to try to clean a spot on my crock pot that had dried on BBQ sauce on the side of it.
So as soon as I put the cloth under the running water it went limp and easy to squeeze out all the excess water. You want to make sure you squeeze out all the extra water for maximum absorption of whatever your cleaning up! It can be used alone or with popular household cleaners. I used it with a little soap and just scrubbed at the crockpot a little and look what it did!
Now, imagine if I did that with a paper towel? I think the towel would have shredded from scrubbing at it. The SKOY cloth held together and when I was finished I just rinsed it, squeezed it and let it dry. You can also clean it in the dishwasher and it's washer/dryer safe too!! Still worried about collecting germs? Microwave it! Yep, put it in the microwave for 1-2 minutes when it's wet! I don't know of any other product quite like this. I really love mine and will use them to their full potential! Such a money saver! They are available at The Container Store and select Cost Plus World Market stores too!
