We have seen customers use it to clean dirty & stained oven top surfaces as well!
Warnings: Keep out of reach of children. Keep out of eyes. If it gets in the eyes, gently flush with clean water. The DISH BLOCK® dish soap bar is very solid and not designed to be cut safely. dishes will get slippery when soapy and wet. Do not leave sitting in a pool of water, it needs to stay drained and dry between uses.
*Test in an inconspicuous spot for new materials you wish to use it on to ensure compatibility. Not recommended for delicate fabrics, with naturally dyed products or for use on porous stone surfaces such as granite, quartz or marble. We do not guarantee compatibility with all materials.
(There will be imperfections, chips, cracks, fissures and roughness on the bar and rough variations on the surface, this is normal.)
Moso Bamboo Soap Shelf - 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. We used this beautiful and renewable plant to create our Moso Bamboo Soap Shelf, a perfect dry resting spot for the dish block washing soap.
Place in an area where it can drain or elevate to keep out of standing water. It will need replacement with time. Each soap dish typically lasts several months but this will vary depending on your placement, if you allow it to sit in water and your climate and humidity. Bamboo naturally biodegrades and this item can be composted at end of life.
Dimensions: 3 3/4 inches by 4 1/2 inches
CASA AGAVE® Dish Brush - is an easy replacement for your plastic dishwashing, pot scrubbing and vegetable brushes in the kitchen and home. With a Moso Bamboo and medium weight agave or palmyra fiber bristles, these brushes can be used for dish washing, pot scrubbing, vegetable washing and even general cleaning in the bathroom. Always test first on new surfaces or materials for compatibility.
Longevity: Each brush can be used for 1-3 months or longer depending on frequency of usage and proper storage. Make sure to not submerge or soak the wooden parts in water. Hang to dry or place in a dry spot after using it.
Why it matters: Plastic bristle scrub brushes shed tiny pieces of plastic called micro plastics. Unfortunately these tiny plastic pieces are not filtered out fully by sewage treatment. So when you hear about the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch" the majority of this garbage patch in the Pacific Ocean is actually tiny pieces of plastic that aren't even visible to the human eye.
These tiny plastic pieces are being eaten by marine animals and ending up in the food chain, being consumed by humans in sushi restaurants around the globe! And if you're vegan, they are ending up in our tap water too. Help us turn off the plastic tap and choose a more sustainable option for humans and the planet.
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 mixed with palmyra 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 and palmyra fiber bristles are grown, harvested, sun-dried and processed in Mexico using traditional techniques to ensure a high quality and strong natural fiber.
