After years of being frustrated over straws that are difficult to clean, I finally set about looking for answers on google.
Some of the first suggestions I saw included using pipe-cleaners and disposing of them afterwards. I actually nearly tried this one out.. until I saw the mountain of actual straw brushes available on the market (I have clearly been living in the dark ages).
The problem I had was that all the great straw brush sets were based overseas, and at only a few dollars, not worth the postage.. but seriously considered.
Finally I found this great brush set, based in Australia and available immediately online. They are amazing.
Cleaning straws on smoothie cups and sippy straw bottles has annoyed me for years.. and seriously, 5 mins of google and the brushes were on the way. I am annoyed at myself for not doing it sooner.
I really love my straw brushes.
