Traditional, Tawashi-style, 4-Inch Natural Coir Bristle Scrub Brushes

Used since ancient times for making string, ropes, and fishing nets, coir is an all natural fiber produced from the part of coconut husks that lies between the hard internal shell and outer husky coat. These traditional, Tawashi-style brushes are made by binding natural coir fibers in tightly wound wire. These scrub brushes are environmentally friendly, naturally waterproof, incredibly durable, and strong. Because they are so tough, you can use less detergent than when you are using dishrags or sponges.

Use for cleaning your hangiri or other wooden dinnerware, as well as for scrubbing your pots and pans. As a matter of fact, they are the perfect tool for cleaning cast iron without scrubbing off the seasoning. Simply use the brush, hot water, and a bit of elbow grease. The stiff coir bristles also work great to scrub your garden root vegetables clean enough to eat them without peeling off the nutrient dense skins. A perfect way "ta-washy" your vegetables!

With a little care, they are long-lasting. To clean, simply soak it in hot, soapy water, rinse and allow to dry. If you like, you can occasionally run it through the dishwasher.
