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 fiber bristles are grown, harvested, sun-dried and processed in Mexico using traditional techniques to ensure a high quality and strong natural fiber.
Materials used: Bamboo grown without pesticides. Agave fiber or palmyra fiber (plant fiber) bristles. Metal staples to hold the bristles. Sealed with a water-based polyurethane (non-plastic synthetic material similar to rubber) varnish.

I’ve been happy to use this brush for a long time, it’s durable, great quality, great price. The new ones have longer bristles. Unfortunately for me it’s difficult to close the metal clasp.
Hi Zoi, try using a metal fork to slide the clasp up if it's not working easily with fingers.
Personally use the little hand held one way more, but this is a good alternative. We use both. LOVE our dish bar too!!
The agave bristles are strong and have lasted for a while. The only suggestion I would make is to modify the shape of the handle and bristles so it's easier to scrub the bottom edges inside of bowls.
I’ve been using this brush for almost 2 months now. It does great washing dishes as well as pots and pans.
It also did great at helping remove a stain on an article of clothing. Used the brush very lightly with some No Tox dish soap bar. Stain came right out!
Love we aaw
My son sent me the links to all the products he uses in his kitchen. The Casa Agave brush being one of them.
We love using it and will be ordering more for our family as we love our "No Tox Life" products.
The brush is great for cleaning dishes, pots and even getting stains out of clothes! I plan to buy another real soon.
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.
