Quit the Paper Towel Habit

I have a terrible, naughty, secret that I don't tell very many people....I use paper towels. Okay, I feel better coming out of the closet into the green, eco-friendly world! No really, all kidding aside, I quit buying paper plates and napkins because I could use other things to replace them, you know like real glass plates? But, the paper towel habit has been a hard habit for this green girl to kick. There are just certain things you don't want your kitchen towels (or any towel or rag or hand or stick or..) to touch, living on a ranch, but I think I may have come across a close second!

My friend and blogging mentor Lena, at Over Coffee, The Green Edition, is doing a giveaway for Skoy cloths. When I first started reading about them I was figuring they were a Shamwow imitation, which I already have, and love for cleaning, but again is too thick for some of the jobs I have here. I was pleasantly surprised when I went to their website and found out they are actually an eco-friendly replacement to 15 rolls of paper towels, for $6. I think these would work great here because I could use them for the yucky, disgusting messes, rinse them out and nuke the bacteria right out of them. How wonderful that I wouldn't have to feel guilty about throwing half a forest away on any given day for a ranch filled with animals, kids and a love for the environment.

Maybe there is hope for my secret addiction!

Those Skoy towels look mighty tempting! I use paper towels, but very few. But remember, the messiest thing I clean up is a rabbit cage. It's a whole different world for you.
