Casa Agave™ Pot Scrubber by No Tox Life The Casa Agave™ pot scrubber helps you replace plastic pot scrubbers in the kitchen! This heavy duty scrub brush has a Moso bamboo handle, with stiff plant fiber bristles. Moso bamboo, known as the giant bamboo or timber bamboo, has been used for centuries to fashion buildings, flooring and culinary tools. The young shoots are often prepared into Asian dishes. The plant fiber bristles are made from agave fiber and palmyra plant fiber. Replaces: plastic scrub brushes. Designed for stuck on food and heavy stains, including for cast iron pots. Can be used on non-stick pans, just be more gentle with it. Longevity: Each brush can be used for 1-3 months. Do not leave any of the wood or bristle parts soaking in water, the natural materials will absorb water and it will cause the brush to swell and crack. If you find your brush is not staying dry, dip the bristles in vinegar occasionally to help kill bacteria. The Moso bamboo is naturally antibacterial but the vinegar will help too. Continue using this brush until the bristles no longer work, 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.
