SKOY cloth Review and Giveaway!!!

I was so excited when Michelle offered me the opportunity to review the SKOY cloth.  I have been searching for a way to replace my sponges and paper towels with a product that is much more earth friendly.  Well, I have found it!

The other night I started replacing all of my "regular cleaning tools" with the SKOY cloth.  Wow, what a great experience.  The SKOY cloth works when it is wet.  In this way it can easily absorb what you have to clean up.  I swished it across my kitchen counter and I loved how clean my counter looked after one swipe.  I also used it to clean my bathroom sink, outside of toilet, mirror and floor.  It was so easy to use just one product instead of juggling paper towels and sponges.

What is unique about SKOY?
*100% Biodegradeable and Compostable
*Re-useable
*Absorbs up to 15 times it's own weight!
*Save 15 rolls of paper towels
*Can be cleaned in dishwasher, washer and microwave
*Works well with just water
*Fun to use

Also, I checked my recent issue of Woman's Day magazine and found an ad for the SKOY cloth in the Live Well section!  I definitely will be changing over to SKOY for my "green" cleaning.  These also would make great gifts for family and friends.

SKOY cloths can be purchased for $6.99 per 4-pack.  Visit SKOY for more information.

I learned that using a SKOY cloth is equivalent to using 15 rolls of paper towels in an average home. So much cooler though and prettier.
