This dish brush is an easy replacement for your plastic dish brushes and sponges in the kitchen and home. With a white teakwood handle and medium weight agave fiber bristles, it is ideal for general dishwashing. It can also be used on vegetables that need a good scrub! Longevity: Each brush can be used for 1-6 months. Do not leave any of the wood parts soaking in water, the wood will absorb water and it will cause the wood to swell and crack. Place in a dry spot after using it.
