Compared with other materials, silicone straw is much safer, which will not harm the internal health of the human body. At the same time, because silica gel has good ductility and bending, there is no need to worry about being swallowed by children, so mothers can rest assured that children can use it. Unlike plastic or metal materials, silica gel will not produce chemicals even when heated. Plastic straws may melt trace toxins into hot drinks, which can make us feel more at ease.
Surprisingly, a silicone straw can last for at least five years. Let’s make a calculation. If you use silicone straw for five years, you can replace nearly 2000 disposable plastic straw. In fact, silica gel is not biodegradable, but when you put them in a suitable place, it is 100% recyclable.
Like all metal objects, silica gel is made at high temperature. Therefore, silicone straw is often accompanied by this manufacturing smell (people who care should buy it carefully), but this smell is not toxic or even dangerous. With the time you use it and the number of times you clean it, this smell will disappear, so don’t worry.
You can boil the silicone straw in water for 10 minutes to clean. You need to cool the straw before use, otherwise bad things will happen. When you are in a tight time and can’t find a brush, don’t panic. Flossing can also achieve the cleaning effect. If you don’t want to wash yourself, it’s also a good choice to throw the silicone straw into the dishwasher. Silica gel can withstand temperatures up to 500 degrees, which is very convenient for cleaning, disinfection and prevention of bacteria and mold.
Everyone will use detergent when cleaning, but the detergent contains essential oil, antibacterial agent and moisturizer. These oils will stick to the silica gel material, which may make your silicone straw have an unpleasant soap smell. How to alleviate this problem? Just use fresh lemon or orange, rub the lemon on the silica gel and let it stand for 10 minutes, The smell of soap will disappear.
I wonder if you have noticed that white powdery residues often stay on the silicone straw. Don’t panic. Just soak the silica gel in distilled white vinegar and wait for 30 minutes. These things will disappear (because the vinegar can penetrate mineral deposits). Just rinse it again and wipe it dry with a cloth.
If your silicone straw is moldy unfortunately, don’t worry. You can wipe it gently with alcohol to remove the mildew. Don’t use it immediately after washing. Put it in a ventilated place and wait for it to dry naturally. If there is no alcohol at home, it is OK to use toothpaste. Just squeeze the toothpaste in the moldy place of silica gel, gently brush away the mildew with an old toothbrush, and then rinse it with water.
If you want a reusable and durable straw, silicone straw is your best choice. It can not only be cleaned by dishwasher, but also equipped with special straw brush for easy cleaning., Silica gel can also be well preserved at room temperature. If you like, you can also use silicone straw to drink hot tea. They are flexible and moldable. You can easily put them in your bag, take them out or put them in the kitchen drawer, or even put them in red wine, so as to avoid the embarrassment of teeth stained by red wine. And silicone straws can be customized. If you have your own lucky color or favorite color, you can customize it to meet your needs in different occasions.
