How to clean your bamboo utensils
Look after your bamboo cutlery and other re-usable products to really get the most out of them. Bamboo is a natural product and has to be cleaned to ensure good hygiene, and dried properly to make it last.
Bamboo is a natural alternative to plastic
Bamboo is a grass native to Asia. Used extensively in many applications due to it's water repelling properties and strength. It's light and extremely fast growing so offers a viable alternative to many plastic products.
Once used it is best to clean the items as soon after use as possible.
Use hot soapy water, rinse well and air dry - that's it. The last part is important, being a natural product, any moisture left in the utensil could cause mould if not kept in a ventilated place so ensue you leave it somewhere to air dry completely before storing and your bamboo products will last a long time.
Cleaning bamboo straws
When making bamboo straws the grass is cut and trimmed to size, that's pretty much it - so the hole down the middle is naturally formed. This does mean that the size varies.
Our cutlery set and drinking straw set contain a special straw brush. Like a bottle cleaning brush but much thinner. This means that whatever the size of the hole, you can give the inside of your straw a really good clean.
Just leave the straws to dry thoroughly before storing.
