Skoy Cloth Promotion

{ GIVEAWAY }
Skoy, Skoy, Skoy!!! If you can't tell, I am shouting "SKOY" from the virtual rooftops.

Why is that, you may ask? Well, it is only the most eco-friendly practical money saving product that has scooted into my life lately. Oooh, let me tell you, Skoy Cloths are as good as they sound.

How good do they sound? Let's give you some "wow" facts:
- On average, ONE Skoy Cloth is equal to FIFTEEN rolls of Paper Towels!
- Skoy Cloths are 100% biodegradable and compostable!
- Skoy Cloths can be cleaned in the microwave, washer/dryer and dishwasher. wooo!

Now, that I've got you interested, let's talk about an inspiring story. Skoy Cloths was created by two stay-at-home moms, Michelle and Karen! They saw the need for a better US product, put their heads together and WALAH - started making a positive difference for the world.

Skoy is named for the German word "Skoj" (pronounced Skoy) which means "Just for Fun."
Skoy is an amazingly eco-friendly product which brings some extra fun to your kitchen and life.

{ REVIEW }

I was given the wonderful opportunity to try out a 4 pack of Skoy Cloths for myself and put it to the test.

Here are some pictures from my experience:


{ THUMBS DOWN }

- Both the flower design and inspirational quote design are perfect for a family household or a woman's kitchen, however it may not fit as well in the men's kitchen. Perhaps, in the future Skoy Cloths could offer a design that could comfortably be used by older single Males, like my Dad or younger college men.

{ THUMBS UP }
- Excellent presentation! The pack came with a professional looking care guide and tied with eco-friendly tie.
- Design and bright colors are perfect for a family kitchen and make it much more cheery and even fun to wipe up messes.
- Saves Money!!! 4 Skoy Cloths cost $5.99, 15 paper towel rolls cost almost $31.25, plus wastes a lot of paper.
- 100% natural and recyclable (made from natural cotton and wood-pulp cellulose).
- Feels almost like I imagine seal skin would, nicer to hold than a regular paper towel.
- Washable in microwave, washer/dryer or dishwasher.
- Feels good knowing you are doing your part for the environment with a fun and effective product!

**Even my husband loved this product. We've had it a week and it is a staple in our kitchen. With reuseable napkins and "just for fun" Skoy cloths we now have a pretty eco-friendly and beautiful kitchen.

{ BUY IT }
- Purchase Skoy Cloths NOW! Only $5.99 for a 4 Pack on Amazon, buy HERE.

**This also makes the perfect gift for an eco-friendly friend who likes to try the newest products. It is thoughtful and fun!

{ WIN IT }

The comment the affected me the most was from Cindy, Hesperia, California where she says she saved 10 paper towels in two days. Having a child, I go through so many paper towels a day, but they're so convenient! Every time I gram another, I feel guilty! So this looks like the perfect item for a paper towel a-holic like me!

This is the one that affected me the most--Melissa (May 2008)

I love these cloths. I use them in my kitchen to clean EVERYTHING! I also use them to dust my living room (desks and cabinets). I use them on my electronics also to clean the dust off. I love that you just rinse it and the dirt and dust comes right off. I microwave it everyday for 1 minute to keep it clean. I also use it to clean off my sons toys and high chair. I use a new one around every 9 days. That’s hundreds of paper towels I am no longer using!

Victoria from Helsingborg Sweden because she said they can be found in every household in Sweden. I'm sure that's a big fat lie because Victoria cannot possibly have been in every house in Sweden but it's still a thought provoking comment.

“Skoy is the best! It is paper towel free and can be used over and over again without feeling like your wiping germs over germs. I love the feel of it and how much it absorbs.

they are the best cleaning cloths no need for paper towels

lrlucky7 April 9, 2010 at 11:00 AM  

The comment that impacted me the most was Gayle from Olathe, KS who said that she had saved so many paper towels since receiving the SKOY clothes, and they did not leave streaks on her glass top stove. Thanks!

Crystals, because she only used one type of paper towels before SKOY and was a snob to any other brand.

I was most impacted by the comment by Melissa (May 2008) since she tells of so many different uses for the Skoy cloths, how to take care of them and how often she changes to using a new one. She uses them so much, she is certainly saving a lot of paper towels (trees)!

Which testimonial impacted me most: "I have already noticed in the 2 days I have used the Skoy cloth that I have saved about 10 paper towels! I felt so guilty using them all the time. The Skoy has made me feel less guilty. ha ha. I love it! Even my kids fight over who wipes the table down after dinner now, they both want to use the cool cloth!".

purango April 9, 2010 at 10:53 PM  

I like the one from Bonnie, Encinitas, CA (November 2007). She says the cloths don't streak and she cleans with rarely having to use soap. garrettsambo@aol.com

Betty C April 9, 2010 at 11:34 PM  

I like the comment from Bonnie in Encinitas, CA. She mentioned several things that concern me too. It would be great to save paper towels and still have a great looking kitchen.
