This eco-friendly dish brush has a white teakwood handle and brush head, with stiff agave fiber (vegan) plant bristles. It is held together with silver metal wire, and includes a small wire loop at the end for hanging dry.
Replaces: plastic handled dish brushes. Can be used to wash general dishes as well as to loosen stuck on food.
If you find your brush head is not staying dry, dip the bristles in vinegar occasionally to help kill bacteria. The white teakwood is naturally antibacterial but the vinegar will help too.
Continue using this brush until the bristles no longer work or the brush head falls apart, then compost or bury in garden or dispose in a green waste bin. Stop using the brush and replace it if you see any mold growth.
Storage and Care: To reduce cracking, keep the wood parts dry and do not soak or submerge them in water. Cracking is normal for uncoated brushes if you tend to get the wooden parts very wet. You can oil your brushes to reduce the potential of cracking if you regularly submerge your dish brushes in water.
End of life: Once worn out, the wood and agave parts can be composted or buried in the garden, the silver metal parts can be recycled.
Why it matters: Plastic bristle brushes shed tiny pieces of plastic called micro plastics. Unfortunately these tiny plastic pieces are not filtered out fully by sewage treatment. So when you hear about the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch" the majority of this garbage patch in the Pacific Ocean is actually tiny pieces of plastic that aren't even visible to the human eye.
These tiny plastic pieces are being eaten by marine animals and ending up in the food chain, being consumed by humans in sushi restaurants around the globe! And if you're vegan, they are ending up in our tap water too. Help us turn off the plastic tap and choose a more sustainable option for humans and the planet.
Sustainability: For the wood handle, we do not use the species Teak that is endangered, we use a different species called White Teak wood that is very fast-growing (similar to bamboo) and even considered a weed in some countries because it grows so fast.
Agave Fiber: Casa Agave™ agave fiber bristles are grown, harvested, sun-dried and processed in Mexico using traditional techniques to ensure a high quality and strong natural fiber.
"Dish brush. I recently purchased the long handled dish brush and a dish washing block. It’s working great and really allows the soap to get sudsy while cleaning dishes. I’m considering purchasing a second brush so that I can have one for scrubbing produce and one for cleaning!"
