This removable-head dish brush has a beechwood handle and brush head, with stiff agave fiber (vegan) plant bristles. It is held together with silver metal wire, and includes a small wire loop at the end for hanging dry.
Dimensions: 9" L handle + head; head is 1 7/8" diameter at back
Care & Use Instructions: Use as you would any dish cleaning apparatus, soap up and scrub. Allow to dry when not in use. Each brush head can be used for 1-6 months, depending on frequency of use and intensity of job. 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, or the metal pieces to come out. Hang to dry or place in a dry spot after using it. We have a designated jar by the sink for these!
If you find your brush head is not drying between uses, 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. Don't apply undue pressure on the handle or it will break.
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). We've found great luck with using a fork to slide the wire down too. 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 push the metal grip that holds it tight back up. Voilà.
