With paper towels.
I like to wipe the counters-A LOT. It gives me inner peace to see a freshly wiped counter.
I didn't used to be this way.
I was a partial slob for like the first 5 years of my marriage. Clean counters never really mattered all that much to me, I used to work full time and in the days of one child I usually didn't have a mess on my counters.
So no biggie.
Fast forward to now-full time SAHM and homeschooling mom to 2, wife to a Pilot that is usually running out the door at all hours of the day and a man who can't really concern himself with counter crumbs. Insert me and my pseudo-crunchiness, I am in the process of trying to un-paper towel my family. Jet Pilot hates them, kids usually use baby wipes for their messy faces, so really when you get down to it, its just me that has the Paper Towel Addiction.
But I am getting better and just recently I was sent a product that I think will relieve a large portion of my paper towel addiction.
SKOY Cloth were created by 2 moms from Encinitas who wanted to create a cloth better than any cloth they have ever used in their kitchen that was both eco-friendly, and reusable. The idea was born when one of the creators remembered one indispensable cloth she used while living in Europe in the 90's. Skoy Cloth was later born from that idea. Skoy Cloth are 100% biodegradable, reusable, absorbent and European Made. They absorb 15 TIMES their weight and are the eco-friendly alternative to paper towels. (Seeing as one Skoy is equivalent to 15 ROLLS OF PAPER TOWELS!) Hello, how could you not want to use Skoy?? Plus since its reusable you can throw it in the wash, nuke it in the microwave (make sure the cloth is wet first), or just toss it in the dishwasher. Eco-conscious and easy to maintain-THIS CHICK IS SOLD.
I used SKOY to wash my dishes, and to wipe down counters, stove, table, microwave..you get the idea. My Skoy cloth got a LOT of use that first day.
And it stood up well.
I used it for 3 days and then tossed it in the washer, its now back to putting in work in my kitchen and it is holding up GREAT! I give SKOY 2 GIGANTIC thumbs UP!! Thanks Skoy for helping a girl un-paper towel herself!
