Skoy Cloth

I received in the mail as part of a product review Skoy Cloth. Skoy Cloth is to be used instead of paper towels or sponges and one skoy cloth equals 15 rolls of paper towels so they are very earth friendly. You can use this with just water or household cleaners and use as you would normally use a paper towel. They are thicker then a paper towel . To clean your skoy cloth you can be washed in a dishwasher or washer and to dry a dryer. Another way to keep the cloth healthy and germ free put it in the microwave  wet and  put the timer on for 1-2 minutes. I used it to clean up a spill on my counter and found it worked really well and would recommend this product. You can visit their website at: . I also am including the story of Skoy Cloth from the website:

Our story is quite simple. We had a desire to share a cloth that is better than any cloth we have ever used and was environmentally friendly.  We started to do a little research and were shocked to see how people were cleaning their kitchens. We were even more shocked to find out how many tons of paper towels were being used annually (2.5 million tons) and filling up our landfills.  
We are two stay-at-home moms living in Encinitas, California. Our children have begun Elementary school and we have a little extra time.  We decided that this would be the perfect time to start our business.
We have been working and researching for almost a year on our product. We have such passion for this cloth because we believe that it is the best thing out there.
‘The idea originated when Michelle was living in Europe in the late 90’s.  She discovered a product that was similar to the SKOY cloth and it was just amazing.  Over time she found the cloth to be indispensable.  When she moved back to the US, she realized that the use of a sponge was inadequate and the excessive use of paper towels, wasteful. Michelle searched and searched for a similar cloth and nothing even compared; nothing was of the same caliber. This is when Michelle introduced the cloth to Karen. She immediately fell in love with it and could not imagine cleaning with anything else.’
We then put our heads together and discussed a way to bring this product to the US with the requirement that it meet our high standard.  Now we are so excited to be able to offer the SKOY cloth to you—which is everything that we had hoped it would be.
How we got our name
Looking for a name proved challenging.  After looking for a  long time, we found a word that is the philosophy of our business.  Skoj (pronounced Skoy) is a Swedish word that means: “just for fun”! What a perfect word for our business.  In other words, we wanted a business that we could have fun doing and at the same time would bring fun to the kitchen. With really cool designs we think we have accomplished this, while still doing our part to take care of the Earth.
About our factory
Our factory is aware of the responsibility for handling its resources carefully. We use renewable raw materials such as cellulose (derived from wood), and cotton to produce our SKOY cloths. Our factory has invested heavily in developing and implementing an integrated environmental recycling and disposal facility in which the economical use of energy and water is first and foremost. Production by-products are purified and recycled as far as possible within the process. Regeneration baths are returned to production by an evaporation process. Wastewater is treated at the site's biological wastewater purification plants. This environmental concept is at the vanguard of operations-related environmental policy and has resulted in our factory becoming a reference company throughout the industry.
