Replace plastic dish brushes that shed microplastics with this agave fiber dish brush with a replaceable head. It has a white teakwood handle (white teakwood is very fast-growing much like bamboo) and brush head, with stiff agave fiber (vegan) plant bristles. The brush is held together with silver metal wire and includes a small wire loop at the end to hang dry. Used to wash general dishes. For tough stuck-on food try using our scrubs.
Care: Each brush head can be used for 1-6 months. The handle should last for a couple years with normal use. Don't apply undue pressure on the handle or it will break. Do not leave any of the wood soaking in water because it will cause the wood to swell and crack or the metal pieces to come out. Hang to dry or place in a dry spot after use. If the brush head is not staying dry, dip it in vinegar occasionally to help kill bacteria. The wood is naturally antibacterial but the vinegar will help too.
Once worn out, the wood and agave parts can be composted or buried in the garden, the silver metal parts can be recycled.
Replacing the brush head: The first time, it is a little stiff to bend the wires and you may need to use a pair of pliers to loosen it. Always use caution while loosening. After the first time, you can replace the head by using strong fingers to squeeze the wires together, loosen the metal grip, and pop off the brush head. Just slide a new brush head on and replace the metal grip that holds it tight.
