CASA AGAVE® Dish Brush
CASA AGAVE® Dish Brush
The CASA AGAVE® brushes are an easy replacement for your plastic dishwashing, pot scrubbing and vegetable brushes in the kitchen and home.
Choose the light bristles for dishes and the dark bristles for pot scrubbing.
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.
Replaces: Plastic dish or pot brushes.
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.

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!
