The straw brush cleaner has steel handle with nylon 4 BPA free food grade bristles, and are made ethically in China. We would love to find a plastic free alternative, but for now these were the best alternative we could find. They are very sturdy, and will last a very long time and can be used for other purposes other than cleaning your straws too- cleaning narrow bottles for example.
Taking Care of Your Straws:
After each use it is important to clean and dry your straws, to make sure they last. If you are drinking water or a soft drink, they can be simply rinsed with luk warm water and a small drop of washing up liquid. If using your straws for a thicker drink such as a smoothie, use a drop of washing up liquid on your straw cleaning brush to make sure no bits get left inside of your straw.
Always let your bamboo straws dry fully. I place mine in a clean and dry glass jar without the lid on (see picture) and not overcrowded with other straws.
Store your straws in a well-ventilated place, and never in air-tight sealed containers.
