Casa Agave™ Dishwashing & Vegetable Hand Brush Scrub
The Casa Agave™ brush is an easy replacement for your plastic dishwashing and vegetable brushes in the kitchen and home.
With a Moso Bamboo handle and medium weight agave fiber bristles, it is ideal for general dishwashing.
Replaces: Plastic dish brushes. Can be used to wash general dishes as well as to loosen stuck-on food. For very stuck on food and heavy stains, try our pot scrubber, the plant fiber bristles are stiffer and are better designed to tackle heavier grit.
Multi-purpose: The hand brush can also be used on vegetables that need a good scrub!
Longevity: 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 the garden or dispose of in a green waste bin. Stop using the brush and replace it if you see any mold growth.
Why It Matters: Plastic bristle scrub 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.
Sustainability: Moso bamboo, known as the giant bamboo or timber bamboo, has been used for centuries to fashion buildings, flooring, and culinary tools. The young shoots are often prepared into Asian dishes. The plant fiber bristles are made from agave fiber mixed with palmyra fiber. Lightly coated with a non-toxic wood coating to reduce cracking and splitting. FSC certified by TÜV SÜD Czech, Prague.
Agave Fiber: Casa Agave™ agave fiber bristles are grown, harvested, sun-dried and processed in Mexico using traditional techniques to ensure a high quality and strong natural fiber.
