Pots Scrubber - Sisal bristles
This earth friendly pot scrubber will become your kitchen's new best friend! It easily tackles "stuck on food" with it's coarse plant-derived sisal bristles.
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.
Storage and Care: To reduce cracking, keep the wood parts dry and donotsoak or submerge them in water. Cracking is normal for wooden 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. Stop using the brush and replace it if you see any mold growth.
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 dish washing sessions, the natural bristles will wick up excess water and cause the handle to crack.
