You can use these cloths instead of paper towels or sponges. They are 100% biodegradable and natural. They come in a 4 pack, with 4 different colors so you can use/color code them for different places (kitchen, bathroom, etc). They are absorbent and reusable. You can machine wash them or put them in your dishwasher! One skoy cloth is the same as 15 rolls of paper towels. A similar item can be found at Trader Joes, but the Skoy cloths are a small size which is perfect for wiping up spills. I am loving these!
