We like the idea of choosing wooden brushes for the kitchen as well and this White Teakwood handle brush with agave fiber plant bristles fits in perfectly to a sustainably thinking home. Each brush head can last for 1-6 months depending on use and detaches from the handles and you can purchase replacement heads for it. Do not leave the wood parts soaking in water, the wood will absorb water and it will cause the wood to swell and crack, or the metal pieces to come out. Hang to dry or place in a dry spot after using it.
If you find your brush head is not staying dry, dip it in vinegar occasionally to help kill bacteria. The white teakwood is naturally antibacterial but the vinegar will help too.
The handle should last for a couple years with normal usage.
Replacing the brush head: The first time, it is a little stiff to bend the wires and you may need to use a pair of pliers to loosen it. (use caution). The subsequent times, you can use strong fingers to squeeze the wires together, loosen the metal grip, and pop off the brush head. Just slide a new brush head on and replace the metal grip that holds it tight.
End of life: Once worn out, the wood and agave parts can be composted or buried in the garden, the silver metal parts can be recycled.
