These attractive wooden dish brushes have removable, compostable brush heads. These are perfect for cleaning jars, glasses, plates, pots and pans, they've got a perfect, medium scrubbing power - not so rough that they'll scratch anything, but strong enough to really get at most kitchen messes!
You can reduce waste by reusing the brush handle again and again with the replacement heads.
If you're looking for extra scrubbing power, like for pots and pans, check out our handheld pot scrubber.
Use and care
For best results, let dry when not in use by hanging from the metal hook at end of handle or storing in a jar with bristles upright. Avoid any long soaks.
The bristles will soften over time but retain their scrubbing power, and you can replace the head when it starts to wear out. Boil to sterilize when needed.
The brush head will naturally loosen from the wires over time with use, so it starts off very tight - it's normal for brand new brush heads to not come off easily. When you are ready to remove the brush head to compost it, we recommend pushing the metal loop down towards the handle to loosen the grip of the wires.
Wooden beechwood handle with metal hook and attachment pieces. The bristles are made from Tampico fiber, a plant-based material sourced from agave and yucca.

End of life

This dish brush is effective and I love that the handle lets me keep my hands out of the hot water/soap (very helpful for sensitive skin/eczema!) I will say after a few uses I started to see cracks in the wood of the brush head but it seems to have little effect besides making the bristles slightly more flexible. It pairs super well with the handheld pot scrubber and I'm loving these additions to my eco-friendlier kitchen!
I’ve had this brush for about 3 months now, using it daily. Bristles haven’t worn down much and it’s in good condition overall. The handle however sucks! Within about a month and half of using it, the brush head was getting wobbly as the metal part that holds the brush head was pulling out of the handle. Then just last week the metal part of the handle which hold the brush head in place just totally fell out of the handle (see pic). I was able to shove it back in and give it a few bangs, but it’s still very wobbly. I really thought the handle would last for hopefully years, not months. Pretty disappointed. The brush head itself is very good though.
Love this brush; it's soft enough for all my dishes, but thick enough bristles to keep its shape and remove grime. Really happy with this and like the grip. Mad I didn't switch sooner!
These have been great for cleaning food off our cast iron and carbon steel pans. The bristles are just stiff enough to remove any stuck on bits but soft enough to work into all the corners.
I recently bought the wooden brush head (without the handle because they were sold out) in an attempt to make my kitchen more eco-friendly. Even without the handle, I absolutely love it. I use a combination of the brush, and a loofah for cup edges and such. The brush is sturdy, and the bristles aren't too soft or hard on dishes. I would say, for the stuck on stuff (pizza cheese I'm looking at you) you would need something sturdier, like a scraper, but otherwise this brush is everything! The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because within the first 2 days of using it, the wood starting warping a bit and even cracked in places. So far, this hasn't been an issue with smell or bristles falling out, but I'm sure mold will start growing there in the future. I have never let it soak in water, and I leave it to dry on a dry surface. Overall, I definitely recommend it and will most likely be buying more in the future, just wish the wood didn't crack and warp so quickly.
