Dish and Vegetable Hand Brush - White Teakwood & Agave Fiber

SKU: NTL-HANDBRUSH
Description

This sustainable 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.

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 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.

No Tox Life handles are wood and our bristles are made out of agave fiber, making this brush 100% compostable.

End of life: Once worn out, the wood and agave fiber parts can be composted or buried in the garden.

Why it matters: Plastic bristle scrub brushes shed tiny pieces of plastic called micro plastics. 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: For the wood handle, we do not use the species Teak that is endangered, we use 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.
