Caring for Your Straws
Stainless Steel Straws are easy to look after.
Immediately after use, place your straw into a glass of water and rinse the inside of the straw to loosen and release any leftover smoothie that might have stuck to the inside. You can hold the straw up to a light source to check that the straight straw is free from obstruction.
At all times, be mindful that metal conducts heat so extremely hot water will heat up the straw – so use warm water only.
Once you have rinsed the inside of the straw, you can safely pop the straw on a drying rack ready for re-use.
If you use a dishwasher, be mindful of tiny bits of detrius becoming lodged inside the straw during the wash cycle – things like a grain of rice, or a speck of food waste. It’s advised to always rinse the straw inside upon completion of your wash cycle to release these little bits.
By following these simple care guidelines for your stainless steel straw, you will happily be using your metal straw for years to come. Each time you re-use your straw you prevent another instance of plastic pollution and, just as important, influence others to be more aware of how their consumer behaviour impacts on our natural environment.
