Casa Agave™ sustainable dish brush swap helps you replace plastic dish brushes in the kitchen!
This removable-head 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.
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.
The brush head is fully replaceable so when it's worn out, slide it out from the metal wire and replace the head. Keep reusing the handle until it is worn out. Don't apply undue pressure on the handle or it will break.
Longevity: Each brush head 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 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 a garden or dispose of in a green waste bin. Stop using the brush and replace it if you see any mold growth.
Replaces & Why it Matters
Plastic handled dish brushes. It can be used to wash general dishes as well as to loosen stuck-on food.
Plastic bristle brushes shed tiny pieces of plastic called microplastics. 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.
