———————————————————————————————-

In attempting to not only reduce my use of disposable products around our household paper towels came up on my list as one disposable item I did not want to use any more in our household at all.  I quickly replaced paper towels with plain terry cloth wash clothes, but they easily got holes in them and in the end ended up being disposed of within months.  I began to wonder about my impact of this fabric I was reusing but now was throwing away!

I leaned about skoy cloths through the grapevine in my group of green and crunchy mama’s, about how handy they were and super absorbent, wonderful for kids messes!  So I was delighted to give them a try and test out their 4-pack of multi-colored Skoy cloths!  What I was most interested in was something with the re-usability and durability of a washcloth but was much more eco-friendly upon being disposed of…preferably biodegradable.  I know I ask for a lot don’t I?

The design and colors are vibrant and modern looking!

I love the Skoy cloths!  The designs were very simple and the colors nice and bright but not at all gaudy.  When they were dry they were so thin and fit much more easily in my cabinet than the washcloths and microfiber towels I will soon be re-purposing after replacing them with more Skoy Cloths!  I found many uses for the Skoy cloths I had not thought of before.  I anticipated using it for washing dishes and wiping up messes (such as the insane mess my toddler leaves on the table after dinner!), but I found I was going through them much more quickly!

Storing Skoy cloths takes up very minimal room compared to wash cloths, rags, or hand towels and you get just as great absorbency and durability!

The Skoy Cloths are more thick than paper towels and I found quite durable.  We kept them quick at hand for when SAP accidentally had spills at the table as they absorbed very quickly, and we had a couple designated specifically for our newest member of our family: our pet Angora rabbit Celeriac!  We built his hutch with a tile floor and during litter box training time the Skoy cloths were wonderful for cleaning up accidents in his cage!  I definitely would say these are a must for green moms especially if you are in the potty training stage.

Our Skoy cloths came in really handy to clean our rabbit cages after we adopted rabbits this past week!

We found that there were some instances where we could have used a cloth that was a bit rougher for scrubbing that the Skoy Cloth could not handle, so it would be interesting if Skoy scouring pads were to become into existence, we felt there was a definite need for them!  Another fun idea would be for Skoy cloths made for children.  SAP is at the age where she wants to start helping Mommy and Daddy and enjoys doing chores, but likes having her own little tools to do them with!  Skoy cloths with kid friendly designs would entice her to help us wipe down the table or help clean up messes or wash some non-breakable dishes!  SAP would adore a simple puppy design or bumble bee / ladybug buggies!

What SAPsMaMa Loves About Skoy Cloths:

  • Simple and colorful designs that are aesthetically appealing
  • Biodegradable!  Made from wood and cotton cellulose pulp!
  • The manufacturing of Skoy cloths is much more eco-friendly than other disposable or non-disposable products:  There is no chlorine involved and only water-based dyes and inks are used!
  • Durable and thick, can be used as a nicely absorbent paper towel replacement or as a good wipe-off rag for your table
  • Skinny and much easier to store and stack than wash cloths and hand towels so you won’t need as much storage room for stack of “cloths”!

Suggestions for Improvement:

  • I would love to see a Skoy cloth scouring cloth similar to a sponge with a scrubby side for those messes that warrant more scrubbing!
  • Kid-friendly designs such as bugs or puppy/kitty to appeal to kids in using Skoy cloths with their parents for cleaning up the house and any messes!
