I am about to introduce you to something
that I would be willing to bet you have never heard of.
Just like a TIVO,
this is something that you have no idea about
and then after you use it,
you wonder how in the heck you ever lived without it.
Yes, it will make your life simpler.
Yes, it will make your life easier.
Yes, it is good for the environment!
Are you curious yet?
It's called a SKOY cloth!

"So, what is a SKOY cloth, anyway?" you are probably wondering.
A SKOY cloth is a super-absorbent, biodegradable cloth
made in Europe from cotton and wood based cellulose.
It reminds me of a sponge but flat and square, in a generous size.
The SKOY is the perfect size for wiping up spills and drips
(from those DAMN COSTCO MILK JUGS for one thing! ARGH!!)
for wiping down counters in the kitchen,
the stovetop and the microwave,
for washing dishes too.
You can also use it in other rooms of the house as well.
I have lightly dampened mine and used it for dusting with ease.
After you use it, rinse it and wring it out
then just leave it out to dry.
"What about BACTERIA?"
SKOY cloth is easy to keep clean.
You can toss it in the dishwasher or the washer/dryer.
For me, I wet them and toss them in the microwave for a minute.
They come out clean and scent-free.
The SKOY can also save you a LOT of money.
Did you know that using a SKOY cloth can save the average household
15 rolls of paper towels?
That is just for ONE SKOY CLOTH!
The thing that really gets me about these is the absorbency.
The best thing I can think of to compare it to
would be a chamois cloth.
It has just made spills or water splashed on the counters while doing dishes
a total non-event.
And I don't feel annoyed about wasting paper towels either
(unlike my paper-towel whore husband! lol)
Just so you know, I am not being paid by SKOY cloth to write this.
I found them on the Internet when I was doing some research,
was interested yet skeptical of the product,
and I emailed them to ask for a free trial..
which I would then blog about.
I warned them that I ALWAYS review products honestly
They believe in their product enough that they sent me a package of four.
That was about two months ago
and I am still using the first two original SKOY cloth that I started out with.
In fact, you can see how the green one is getting thinner as it breaks down,
I reach for them multiple times every day
and I will be buying more.
Especially the cute little Holiday SKOY! :::squee!:::

SKOY cloth does not fully replace the paper towel.
You can't microwave slices of bacon on it, for example.
But I have found that it has absolutely cut down on paper good usage in my house
and my counters have never been cleaner or shinier.
So, now that I have carried on about how great this product is
(and it really, truly IS!),
I couldn't be happy if you didn't get to try it too.
SO, I contacted the good folks at SKOY Cloth again
and asked them if they would let me have a contest
and give away their product.
They agreed and have offered A FOUR PACK OF SKOY CLOTHS
TO TWO LUCKY FOLKS!
They come in a neat little stack tied with a raffia ribbon.
I am really excited for you all to try these!
