A great replacement for your plastic dishwashing and vegetable brushes. With a bamboo handle and Natural Tampico fiber bristles, it is ideal for general dish washing.
Tampico fiber is a natural vegetable, biodegradable fiber derived from the Agave plant.
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 white teakwood 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 & Care
To reduce cracking, keep the wood 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.
Once worn out, the wood and agave fiber parts can be composted or buried in the garden.
