All of these products are plastic-free and very low-waste! Soap block comes in recyclable box, and soap lift has a small paperboard tag.
The CASA AGAVE® brush is an easy replacement for your plastic dishwashing and vegetable brushes in the kitchen and home.
With a Moso Bamboo handle and medium weight agave fiber bristles, it is ideal for general dish washing.
Multi-purpose: The hand brush can also be used on vegetables that need a good scrub!
Longevity: Each brush can be used for 1-3 months. Make sure to not submerge or soak the wooden parts in water. Hang to dry or place in a dry spot after using it.
If you find your brush is not staying dry, dip the bristles in vinegar occasionally to help kill bacteria. The bamboo is naturally antibacterial but the vinegar will help too.
Continue using this brush until the bristles no longer work, then compost or bury in garden or dispose in a green waste bin. Stop using the brush and replace it if you see any mold growth.
Storage and Care: To reduce cracking, keep the bamboo parts dry and do not soak or submerge them in water. Cracking is normal for wooden brushes if you tend to get the wooden parts very wet. You can oil your brushes to reduce the potential of cracking if you regularly submerge your dish brushes in water.
Place in a completely dry spot: Hang to dry or place in a completely dry spot after using it. Do not rest the brush on top of your solid dish soap between dish washing sessions, the natural bristles will wick up excess water and cause the handle to crack.
Watch out for: Some companies have "sustainable" brushes that have plastic bristles. Our handles are bamboo and our bristles are made out of agave fiber, making this brush 100% compostable.
Use with the DISH BLOCK®: Keep in mind that when using the DISH BLOCK®, a soft sponge on most dishes is ideal for best longevity. If you use a hard bristle brush on all dishes, you will wear down the DISH BLOCK® faster than a sponge and might dig a hole in the middle of the soap.
Sustainability: Moso bamboo, known as the giant bamboo or timber bamboo, has been used for centuries to fashion buildings, flooring and culinary tools. The young shoots are often prepared into Asian dishes. The plant fiber bristles are made from agave fiber. Lightly coated with non-toxic wood coating to reduce cracking and splitting. FSC certified by TÜV SÜD Czech, Prague.
Agave Fiber: CASA AGAVE™ agave fiber bristles are grown, harvested, sun-dried and processed in Mexico using traditional techniques to ensure a high quality and strong natural fiber.
Each 6 oz (170g) bar of DISH BLOCK® dish soap concentrate goes a long way.
How to use: Scrape dishes to remove excess grease and food. Wet brush, for plates, bowls and cups, and rub DISH BLOCK® dish soap to create rich, fluffy suds. (Repeat as needed to refresh suds.) Wash items and rinse well. Works in all water types including hard water.
Pro kitchen tip: Use the same DISH BLOCK® dish soap suds to clean your sink - this can be used on porcelain, stainless, and glass sinks. We have seen customers use it to clean dirty & stained oven top surfaces as well!
