These straws are so durable, compact and I love that they come with a cleaner so I don't need to figure that out. They are really great especially if you bite straws, these will have you quit that unpleasant habit. Definitely required at home, office and I place one in my purse. The secret is after your drink of choice, drink water with your straw and it will be clean enough by the time you get home you will just need to scrub lightly
I have been looking for an eco-friendly reusable straw to reduce waste. I am very skeptical about using the highly popularized, and widespread, steel straws because of the heat treatment done to make the straws. After some research, I came across these bamboo straws and my partner and I love them!!! They are easy to clean and the thicker straws (package comes with variety of sizes) can pick up thicker liquids like smoothies. We just keep them in a container on our kitchen counter and clean after each use. The cleaning brush is thought out too, which I appreciate so much. It's long, and strong, enough to clean the inside and mendable to move to the curves of the straw's shape. You do have to put the brush through on both ends to get a more thorough clean but honestly, it's only an extra second because the cleaning brush was so well designed. Love this! I will be buying this for Christmas presents!
