Continued from Part 1 of our Product Reviews...

Thank you again to Lynn at for providing us with some fabulous eco-friendly products from their green online store to review.

As promised, our family dedicated this week to using our all-natural cotton-and-wood-pulp-cellulose SKOY reusable cloth, in place of as many disposable recycled paper towels as possible, and here is our update. This SKOY cloth is truly is an amazing product! At first, you might wonder just how this bumpy, stiff little board is going to help you clean. As shown in the picture, dampen the SKOY cloth with plain water, and watch the transformation before your eyes. With just a little water, the cloth immediately softens up, and is ready to use! It has a nice thick feel to it, but amazingly, it's so easy to wring out, and doesn't leave a dripping trail of water droplets. None! I swear! I used our SKOY cloth, dampened with a little soapy dish water, and managed to wash dishes, and wipe down the whole kitchen, after preparing all of our daily meals. Even dried, cooked-on egg white on the stove was no match! The SKOY cloth wiped up grease, juice, sauce, you name it. The bumpy texture also made it great for picking up crumbs. And each time I returned the SKOY cloth to the sink of soapy dish water to rinse out, all the residues came right off! No stains, whatsoever. Even scrubbing with the logo-side of the cloth didn't damage the lovely globe design. That's some amazing dyeing there. When I was finished, I rinsed out the SKOY cloth with clean water, wrung it out, and clipped it with a magnetic clip to the side of the fridge. Within an hour or so, it was that stiff, dry board again - clean, no stains, no smells, and ready for its next job. I didn't have to use any of our all-purpose spray cleaner, or paper towels. Amazing! These SKOY cloths are amazingly durable, and even with all that scrubbing, ours still looks like new! The nice thing is, when it does eventually wear down, these cloths are 100% biodegradable. When the time comes, I'll be heading to myEARTH360 for more (and probably try out some of their other nifty products, too!).

While I'm definitely hooked on SKOY cloths and will be ordering more, here's your chance to win one for yourself! is giving away not one, not two, but THREE SKOY cloths! We're going to select three winners with this giveaway, and each will get to enjoy one of these fantastic SKOY cloths.
