SKOY Review

So I have decided to do everything I can to go green. I have been researching some easy options, because lets face it... I still need to make my house run. But I am totally open to make some changes that won't totally throw off the organized chaos that I have obtained. (In other words, no I will not be giving up my air conditioning or do one load of laundry a week.)

In the midst of my research I came across SKOY and it looked like a simple enough product to try. It sounds great on paper....
  • 100% Biodegradable
  • Reusable and machine washable
  • Absorbs 15 times its own weight
Sounds good, right? No, not good.... AWESOME! I was so impressed! These things absorb so much water. And you ring them out and they are practically dry. I really was amazed.

SKOY sent me a 4 pack to trial. Each cloth is the equivalent of 15 rolls of paper towels.... 15! So I am already looking at a savings of 60 rolls of paper towels (a 4 pack of SKOY cloths costs $6.99).
I couldn't think of a way to photograph how well these work... so here is a picture just seconds after soaking the SKOY cloth and wringing it out. It didn't even leave a puddle on my counter!

So here is a product that is good for the earth and good for your budget... and it works!
