A. Here are our care instructions for our bamboo straws
- Always let your straw dry before storing it
- Clean after use with straw cleaner (don’t let it stay way for too long)
- Allow to dry laying flat (not standing up) so water doesn’t collect at the bottom of the straw
- Dishwasher safe
- Store straws in a well-ventilated area and never in an air tight container
When you first get your straws
You should wash your straw with soap and hot water and allow to dry before storage or use it straight away! Just keep in mind to dry your straw when you’re done using it.
Make sure to wash your straws after every use. This is best done with soap and a straw cleaning brush to ensure the insides are clean. Dry immediately and remember to not keep them wet for a long period of time as this may weaken the bamboo.
Storing your straws
Ensure they are kept in a cool, dry place (not in a dark, air-tight or humid place). Cotton carry pouches are perfect as they allow air flow.
End of life
Depending on the care of your straw, they should last at least a year or longer. Because they are 100% natural bamboo, they can easily be composted at the end of their life cycle and you don’t have to stress about them harming the environment!
