Ditch those smelly wasteful plastic sponges and scrubbers! Switch to a more biodegradeable option, the teakwood dish hand brush! With a white teakwood handle and medium weight agave fiber bristles, it is ideal for general dish washing. Because of these components this dish brush is 100% compostable!
White Teakwood Dish Brush
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. 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.
For the wood handle, the species Teak is not used, that is endangered, 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, is used instead.
Continue using this brush until the bristles no longer work, then compost or bury in garden. Stop using the brush and replace it if you see any mold growth.
