Agave Dish Brush
This sustainable agave and teak dish brush replaces plastic dish brushes in the kitchen, and is so much more aesthetically pleasing! The removable-head dish brush has a white teakwood handle and brush head, with stiff agave fiber plant bristles. It is held together with silver metal wire, and includes a small wire loop at the end for hanging dry.
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. Stop using the brush and replace it if you see any mold growth.
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.
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.
Once worn out, the wood and agave parts can be composted or buried in the garden, the silver metal parts can be recycled.
The handle is made from a white teak wood which is very fast-growing (similar to bamboo) and even considered a weed in some countries because it grows so fast. The agave fiber bristles are grown, harvested, sun-dried and processed in Mexico using traditional techniques to ensure a high quality and strong natural fiber.
