About Paperless Kitchen: Paperless Kitchen was founded to help individuals, households, businesses and organizations adopt greener lifestyles and philosophies by offering alternatives to paper kitchen products. By choosing their reusable and sustainable products, Paperless Kitchen’s customers protect acres of forests, reduce the waste that ends up in landfills and reduce their overall environmental footprint.
SKOY biodegradable cloths are an absorbent, eco-friendly alternative to cleaning with paper towels. Rather than being formed from wood pulp that is sourced from the products of deforestation, the natural cloth fibers used in the production of SKOY products are sourced from natural cotton and cellulose pulp. These paper towel alternatives are free of chlorine and contain only water-based dyes, which are friendlier to the environment than chemical or oil-based colorants.
The One Green Planet Verdict: We tried two different types of reusable, compostable, and biodegradable towels from Paperless Kitchen, and are ready to give disposable paper towels the boot!
The Bambooee Reusable Bamboo Towels are thick, absorbent, and very durable. Great for soaking up spills and messes, wiping down the counter, and even for dusting. Instead of throwing them in the garbage once they are used, just toss them in the washer. We washed ours in a separate load on a warm cycle and tossed them in the dryer, and they came out looking pretty much like new! With the capability of surviving 20 trips in the washer and lasting up to a week and a half, these reusable towels are definitely worth your money.
SKOY cloths are perfect for washing dishes or doing some cleaning around the house. They’re even strong enough to stand up to scrubbing carpet! Unlike sponges, these cloths do not harbor bacteria. One cloth can last you months, which is great since one cloth is equal to 15 paper towels when it comes to absorption!

My best friend in the Kitchen!
This product is definitely like a best friend- reliable, makes your life easier/happier, and always there! When I say, "always there", I mean it! Unlike wasting papertowels (and your money!), you can always use this paperless product and wash it in the dishwasher too. I always cook and spills and messy countertops are unavoidable, so I defintiely feel better when I need something to clean up right away! It is not flimsy and it absorbs perfectly! I just LOVE these cloths and highly recommend it to anyone! Go green!
Great paper replacement for my kitchen
I am now in love with my Paperless Kitchen Skoy cloths and Bamboo towels - they are wonderful! We use WAY too many paper towels in my house, so the Bamboo towels are great for drying dishes or wiping up spills. The skoy cloths are thicker and are great for doing dishes or cleaning up around the kitchen. One side of these have a scrubbing effect on dishes, which make them a great sponge replacement. My favorite part is washing them and re-using them without the germs or bacteria. I'm addicted!
Skoy Cloths/Paperless Towels
I use very few paper towels to begin with - usually, a roll will last my household a month or more. But when I do use one, I feel guilty about it...I hate throwing things away. And while the paperless paper towels are still made to be thrown away, they are recyclable and biodegradable, and they last for far more uses than a single-use paper towel. The SKOY cloths will be great to replace sponges, which are usually made of some kind of petroleum-based material (bad!). I'm glad I have these products to replace some of the less sustainable kitchen items I use.
