Care & Maintenance
Best practices for looking after our products!
Best washed after use in warm soapy water.
Bamboo naturally absorbs moisture and can attract insects as a natural material. Instead of using borax or other toxic and environmentally damaging process, we have our own natural treatment process which typically prevents and protects for a long time.
Coating the bamboo in coconut oil, or similar forms of cooking oil, helps to prevent the bamboo from absorbing moisture. You cutlery comes coated but over time this may wear off through washing. Recoating your cutlery is easy, just apply coconut oil with a cloth to help seal and protect the bamboo. We recommend doing this every 4-6 months.
Bamboo Straws & Cleaners
It is best to use and withdraw the straw cleaner from the bamboo straw when wet. When dry the straw cleaner can get quite firmly stuck inside the straw, but with some water the bristles soften a little and it is easy to remove and clean.
Straws can be re-coated in the same manner as the cutlery above and coating can be applied to the inside of the straw using the straw cleaner. We recommend using warm-hot water to clean the straws and scrubbing with the straw cleaner to ensure hygiene and cleanliness. It's best to leave the straw upright to dry.
Coconut Cleaning Brushes & Sponges
For dish cleaners, bottle cleaners, sponges, etc. Use as you would a regular brush or sponge. Clean after use to remove dirt and Leave the items hanging or upright to allow items to dry thoroughly, reducing the chances of any moisture building up and becoming a suitable environment for bacteria to grow.
Loofah is an amazing gift from nature, but it's texture and properties, combined with it's close contact to skin, means it needs extra care. Once again, the most important way to keep your Loofah healthy is to keep it dry.
After use in the bath or shower with water, be sure to keep it in a dry environment, hanging as such to allow airflow.
