Bamboo Dish Brush for Dishes
No Tox Life
With rounded ergonomic handle, longer bristles and larger bristle diameter. The CASA AGAVE™ brush is an easy replacement for your plastic dishwashing and vegetable brushes in the kitchen and home. With a Moso Bamboo handle and medium weight agave fiber bristles, it is ideal for general dish washing.
Replaces: Plastic dish brushes. Can be used to wash general dishes as well as to loosen stuck on food. For very stuck on food and heavy stains, try our pot scrubber, the plant fiber bristles are stiffer and are better designed to tackle heavier grit.
Multi-purpose: The hand brush can also be used on vegetables that need a good scrub!
Longevity: Each brush can be used for 1-3 months. Make sure to not submerge or soak the wooden parts in water. Hang to dry or place in a dry spot after using it.
If you find your brush is not staying dry, dip the bristles in vinegar occasionally to help kill bacteria. The bamboo is naturally antibacterial but the vinegar will help too.
Continue using this brush until the bristles no longer work, 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 bamboo parts dry and do not soak or submerge them in water. Cracking is normal for wooden 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.
Place in a completely dry spot: Hang to dry or place in a completely dry spot after using it. Do not rest the brush on top of your solid dish soap between dish washing sessions, the natural bristles will wick up excess water and cause the handle to crack.
Sustainability: Moso bamboo, known as the giant bamboo or timber bamboo, has been used for centuries to fashion buildings, flooring and culinary tools. The young shoots are often prepared into Asian dishes. The plant fiber bristles are made from agave fiber. Lightly coated with non-toxic wood coating to reduce cracking and splitting.
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.
