SKOY is an eco-friendly household cleaning cloth that outlasts 15 rolls of paper towels. This new approach to cleaning boasts a cloth that is 100% biodegradable, natural and re-usable. The SKOY cloth has an absorption factor of 15x its own weight, which makes it far superior than any other cloth on the market. SKOY is a durable cloth that is washer and dryer safe, which means it can be used over and over again. This European-made product is non-toxic and utilizes original artwork designs to add fun as well as function to the kitchen or bathroom.
We received a package of SKOY cloth to review. The packaging was minimal—the cloths were tied together with a simple brown string. It definitely added to the “eco-friendly” feeling.
I have used Sham Wows in the past, so that really what my comparison factor is. The SKOY cloths are much smaller than Sham Wows. But, I could feel instantly that the SKOY cloths were made of a higher quality fabric, and they’re softer.
I’ve used them for wiping down the counters, cleaning the girls’ faces after they’re done eating and soaking up spills. They’ve done a great job with each of these tasks.
Since the company says they are washer and dryer safe, I had to put that to the test. I put several of them through the washer and dryer, and they definitely shrunk, but the material seemed to hold up pretty well. Next time I’ll probably hang dry them as they should air-dry pretty fast.
I haven’t had them long enough to say whether they truly outlast 15 rolls of paper towels (it takes us a long time to go through that many paper towels), but I’m curious to see how long they do last compared to our sham wows—hopefully they outlast them!
If you’re looking for an eco-friendly alternative to using a ton of paper towels, check out SKOY cloth. They can be purchased from Amazon.com.
