    Casa Agave™ sustainable dish brush swap helps you replace plastic dish brushes in the kitchen!

    This removable-head dish brush has a white teakwood handle and brush head, with stiff agave fiber (vegan) plant bristles. It is held together with silver metal wire, and includes a small wire loop at the end for hanging dry.

    Replaces: plastic handled 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.

    Longevity: 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.

    If you find your brush head 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 or the brush head falls apart, 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.

    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. 

    Watch out for: Some companies have "sustainable" brushes that have plastic bristles. Our handles are wood and our bristles are made out of agave fiber, making this brush 100% compostable.

    Use with our Dish Washing Block®: Keep in mind that when using our Dish Block®, a soft sponge on most dishes is ideal for best longevity. If you use a hard bristle brush on all dishes, you will wear down the dish block faster than a sponge and might dig a hole in the middle of the block. 

    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. 

    Agave Fiber: Casa Agave™ agave fiber bristles are grown, harvested, sun-dried and processed in Mexico using traditional techniques to ensure a high quality and strong natural fiber. 

    Sizes: choose either the petite size with uncoated handle or the full size with larger handle and light non-toxic wood coating to increase longevity. The full size is more comfortable for those with larger hands.
