In my opinion flowers make a horrible Valentine's Day gift. We've been made to believe that they are romantic and what every girl wants. But if you think about it- they don't live long, they're kind of expensive, and the flower industry isn't exactly known for being the most eco-friendly. Of course there ARE Green Florists, but I'd still personally rather have a more practical gift. So, if you want to give the gift of flowers for your loved on this Valentine's Day, why not give them Skoy Cloths?
With their cheerful colors and daisy design on each set of Skoy Cloths and affordable price this is definitely an eco-friendly AND frugal Valentine's Day gift! Skoy Cloths are also extremely versatile. They come in sets of 2, 3, and 4 though I recommend getting the 4-pack so you can use my method. I assign each Skoy Cloth a job. One I use to wash dishes in my kitchen, one I use to clean the surfaces in my kitchen (counter tops, microwave, stove, etc.), one I use in my bathroom to clean, and one I use for the rest of the house to clean. Even though Skoy Cloths can cleaned in the dishwasher or washing machine and dries quickly so it won't harbor bacteria, I still like to assign my cloths a different job in order to avoid cross contamination. Even when it's clean the idea of using the same cloth to clean my dishes that I use to clean my toilet does weird me out a bit! So pick up a multi-colored four pack and clean away!
A single Skoy Cloth can replace 15 rolls of paper towels- keeping all of that waste out of a landfill. Though, even Skoy Cloths will need to be replaced after several uses. The good news is- these handy cloths are 100% biodegradable and can be composted! So throw it into the compost or even through it out knowing that it won't be spending too much time being "garbage" before it's reclaimed by the earth.
If you don't like the multi-colored daisy print style Skoy Cloths are also available in white (with the flower print), multi-colored with inspirational messages, and holiday prints. All of these cloths measure 7"x7". Think you need something a little larger? Skoy Cloths are also available in a 12"x10" 2-pack set featuring paw prints! All Skoy Cloths are available via the website or on Amazon.com where they qualify for FREE SUPER SAVER SHIPPING! (YAY!)
What I Love: They are biodegradable, reusable, handy, and colorful. I love that one cloth will replace 15 rolls of paper towels (were I to use paper towels anymore) and when they have done their job they are compostable! I really love how durable they are as well. I've been able to scrub stuck on-goo off of my counter top (from one of my many canning adventures) with them and then scrub food off of plates without the Skoy Cloth batting an eye! And, hey, they are even available in Brick and Mortar stores and I even found a store near me that carries them for when I need to replace the ones I have now! YAY!
What I Don't Love: Really, I can't think of a single thing! I love it when that happens. :)
Skoy Clothes are available in four different styles and two different sizes. You can purchase them through the Skoy Cloths Website, Amazon.com, as well as Online and Brick and Mortar Retailers!
Each set, no matter which size or design, sells for $6.99 on both the website and the Amazon. Prices at other retailers may vary.
