The Casa Agave™ pot scrubber helps you replace plastic pot scrubbers in the kitchen! This heavy-duty scrub brush has a sturdy Moso Bamboo handle, with stiff plant fiber bristles.
Want a pot scrubber without the plastic? Look no further! This little puppy has even our grossest pots scrubbed and clean. The wood base fits great in the palm of our hands and is highly polished so you don't get splinters. Our favorite part is that the bristles are made of plant fibers, so unlike a plastic brush when they start to break down after extended use we aren't washing pieces of plastic down the sink and into the water.
Replaces: plastic scrub brushes. Designed for stuck-on food and heavy stains, including for cast iron pots. Can be used on non-stick pans, just be more gentle with it.
Each brush can be used for 1-3 months or longer. Do not leave any of the wood or bristle parts soaking in water, the natural materials will absorb water and it will cause the brush to swell and crack.
If you find your brush is not staying dry, dip the bristles in vinegar occasionally to help kill bacteria. The Moso bamboo 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 3 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. You can oil your brushes to reduce the potential of cracking if you regularly submerge your dish brushes in water. Never store your brush in a wet spot between uses, it will cause the brush to absorb excess water and crack.
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 dishwashing sessions, the natural bristles will wick up excess water and cause the handle to crack.
Using with the DISH BLOCK®: Keep in mind that when using the DISH BLOCK®, a soft sponge on most dishes is ideal for best longevity. If you use a hard bristle brush on all dishes, you will wear down the DISH BLOCK® faster than a sponge and might dig a hole in the middle of the soap.
End of life: Once worn out, the bamboo and plant fiber parts can be composted or buried in the garden.
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 and palmyra plant fiber.
