I haven’t really used paper towel for a while now and it’s very liberating. Sure, we still have a roll or two for emergency purposes but I really don’t like to rely on them. A couple of years ago I bought an extra-large package of those blue and white reusable cloths, and while they do last awhile, I’ve found many disadvantages but thought it was still better than paper towel. Enter Skoy, exit bulk blue and white cloths. Skoy is 100% biodegradable, totally reusable, and so much sturdier than what I have become accustomed to. And they’re darned cute.
Made of cotton and wood-based cellulose, Skoy cloths are very sturdy. I like that they’re much thicker than paper towel and reusable wipes. They’re also a more convenient size. At first I thought they’d be too small, but being the size of my hand, I have a much easier time wiping up a messy kitchen.
Since the people at Skoy claim one cloth can replace 15 rolls of paper towel, I put mine to the test and cleaned my entire kitchen, stove included, with one. I rinsed and scrubbed and was as rough on the thing as I could be. I clean with lots of vinegar and baking soda which eventually rips holes in my previous kitchen cloths but the Skoy withstood the test. Even when I tried, I had a hard time in ripping it. After a vigorous use, I ran it through the dishwasher. Two weeks later, it’s still scrubbing away and in great shape.
