Sustainable Swap: Biodegradable and highly durable multipurpose cleaning brushes that have been designed to bring sustainable style to your kitchen and home by replacing plastic cleaning brushes and synthetic sponges.
Sustainably made: The bristles are made from sustainably farmed coconut husk - the outer part of coconuts - a waste product that is repurposed into useful products.
For the wood handle, we do not use the species Teak that is endangered, we use a different species called White Teak wood that is very fast-growing (similar to bamboo) and even considered a weed in some countries because it grows so fast.
How to use:
- To use in the kitchen: Rub brush on your Dish Block® to get some dish soap on it, then lather up on dishes. Or, for liquid soap, put the soap on the brush and wash dishes as usual. The medium bristles of this brush mean it can be used for regular cups, bowls and plates, as well as deep cleaning of pots and pans.
- To use in the bathroom: This medium bristle brush is great for hard to reach corners of the sink, shower or bathtub. Combine with a baking soda paste cleaner or infused vinegar cleaner for deep cleaning of soap scum or mold. Rinse and place somewhere to dry when you're done, for best longevity.
- Each brush can be used for 1-3 months. Make sure to not submerge or soak the wooden parts in water. For best longevity, allow to hang to dry between uses and 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.
- Continue using this brush until the bristles no longer work. 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.
Warning: Do not allow the brush to soak in standing water, the wood handle will absorb the water and it could cause the brush bristle wire to come out and break.
End of Life: This item is 100% compostable or biodegradable (so, burry it in your garden!).
