Dish and Vegetable Hand Brush
This sustainable, White Teakwood & Agave Fiber dish brush is an easy replacement for your plastic dish brushes in the kitchen and home.
With a white teakwood handle and medium weight agave fiber bristles, it is ideal for general dish washing.
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 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 fiber parts can be composted or buried in the garden.
Sustainability: For the wood handle, the species Teak that is endangered is NOT used. This brush is made from a different species called White Teakwood that is very fast-growing (similar to bamboo) and even considered a weed in some countries because it grows so fast.
