About the new brush design:
The new brush has longer bristles and a thicker bamboo head that is less prone to cracking. It is designed to last longer and create more suds when you wash dishes. The handle features a nicer hook that can be more easily hooked in various places in your kitchen. It is faster to replace the head (no more pliers needed) as the metal clasp is shaped better.
Moso bamboo brush, with stiff agave fiber (vegan) plant bristles. New design! Still fits our earlier design heads.
CASA AGAVE® sustainable dish brush swap helps you replace plastic dish brushes in the kitchen!
This removable-head dish brush has a Moso Bamboo 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.
Replaces: plastic handled dish brushes. Can be used to wash general dishes as well as to loosen stuck on food.
Longevity: Each brush head can be used for 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 head is not staying dry, dip the bristles in vinegar occasionally to help kill bacteria. The wood and bamboo are naturally antibacterial but the vinegar will help too.
Continue using this brush until the bristles no longer work or the brush head falls apart, 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 brushes over time. They are biodegradable and won't last forever like plastic!
The brush head is fully replaceable so when it is worn out, slide it out from the metal wire and replace the head. Keep reusing the handle until it is worn out. Don't apply undue pressure on the handle or it will break.
Replacing the brush head: Squeeze the wires together, loosen the metal grip, and pop off the brush head. Just slide a new brush head on and replace the metal grip that holds it tight.
End of life: Once worn out, the bamboo and agave parts can be composted or buried in the garden, the silver metal parts can be recycled. The bristles are held in with small metal staples so you will need to fish those out of the compost or garden soil later.
Why it matters: Plastic bristle 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: The Moso Bamboo we use is a fast-growing grass and is not the type eaten by giant pandas. 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.

I've been using the dish brush for about 3 months so far, and there's plenty of life left it. The bristles have maintained it's integrity with minimal fall out despite how rough I am with it. The handle hasn't cracked yet. A prior dish brush from another brand cracked very early on, within a month. It's my go-to when washing dishes and pots.
I barely use this brush because the angle of the brush head is quite inconvenient and makes it difficult to actually clean dishes. The brush head is at a 90 degree angle from the handle, so it really can't reach the bottoms of bowls and pots. For the sides of bowls/pots, I either have to awkwardly angle my wrists to get the bristles to have good contact or I have the lay the bowl/pot on the side. The only dishware/cookware the brush seems to be good for are plates and pans, which I'd rather use another type of tool for.
I would go for the sphere style brush featured in this listing next time: https://notoxlife.com/products/casa-agave-long-handle-dish-brushes-bundle-of-4
We are going to make a new listing soon as well with just the sphere style brush. It is better all around for quickly changing angles of the head since the bristles are 360 degrees.
I reaLly love my casa agave brush! Its a great addition to my cleaning products ♡
This is a really nice brush! The bristles are just the perfect firmness. I will order again for sure!
The brush is great, and I’ve been trying to detox my house. The only thing is, it’s harder to clean dishes such as cups and bottles. I also think I care a little too much about not bending the bristles. Overall, it’s been great for me, and the bar soap paired with it makes a great combo!
I have the old design and it is my favorite thing I own! I’ve had it just about 2 years now. It’s still going strong, but my husband put a small crack in the handle recently, so I’m ordering a new one. Hate to see that the design changed, but if it lasts for years with daily use then I don’t care what the design is! Amazing product.
I like the idea of this but the clip on mine kept coming loose, allowing the brush head to come loose. Instead, I now opt for the brushes that have the smaller, nub-like handle on the head of the brush itself, also available on this site. They work great.
I've bought these several times and keep coming back. They are great quality. I got a similar one from Target but its bristles were worn down super quickly. These last.
I bought this product a year or two ago and loved that the handle was flat on top, so that I could set it down on my countertop with bristles facing up. But when i bought it just again now, i was dismayed to see that the handle style had completely changed - the handle is rounded on top and so you cannot set it down anywhere with bristles facing up. You're basically forced to set it bristles down. I found this quite disappointing for my particular usage style.
Sorry to hear you don't like our new design. We designed this new handle to be more ergonomic and comfortable in the hand, as well as being around 50% larger with longer bristles. Some people tie a little string around the handle to hang it to dry, you can also place it on your dish drying rack or on a cloth so it dries fully.
This is a really great scrub brush and cleans in hard to reach places. The bristles hold up really well and I like that it’s great for the earth and is fully compostable! First time using this along with the dish soap bar and I love them both!
