Holiday Gift Guide 2011 SKOY Cloth Review and Giveaway

SKOY are handy squares of reusable biodegradable absorbent cleaning cloths. They are so much better than a paper towel or napkin because of their reusability. They are such an earth friendly product. I love using SKOY with eco-friendly, family friendly antibacterial cleaning sprays like Method or Seventh Generation for surface cleaning. SKOY are also great for scrubbing with and hold up very well use after use. My littlest actually knocked over a glass of juice on the kid's little table and SKOY just sucked that spill up like a sponge, but without leaving behind a trail of nasty growies or liquid!

I have washed them in the washing machine and dried them many times now and they come out looking good as new. I have found that drying them in the dryer shrinks them a little, so either air drying or drying them on the lowest setting on your dryer is recommended.

My kids were thrilled with this product as well. They used one to clean the bathroom and when they cleaned the faucet and the mirror with it they both shined...no streaks and no residue like what paper towels or napkins leave behind. They made them gleam even better than using newspaper.

SKOY also has a great new school fundraising program. The kids will sell each pack for $10, of which $4 will go to the fundraising. Consequently, the school will purchase each pack for $6. That is a 40% gross profit for your school and it is raising awareness for an environmentally friendly product :)

BUY IT:
Choose from these different styles: mixed colors with flower print (4 pack), white with flower print (4 pack), mixed colors with inspirational text (4-pack), large cloth with paws print (2 pack), and my favorite for the Christmas season - holiday prints (3 pack). Each SKOY is approximately 7"x7" except for the large ones which are approximately 12"x10". All packs are $6.99 each on the SKOY website. They also have a subscription service so that you can be sent cloths when you need them on a regular basis. They are great stocking stuffers and holiday gifts!!

Using a SKOY cloth is equivalent to using 15 rolls of paper towels in an average home! Dude. :)
