Stainless Steel and Glass Drinking Straws
03.31.11 Stainless Steel and Glass Drinking Straws
We're feeling inspired by smoothies here at MightyNest and have the perfect selection of safe and BPA-free straws to accompany. The Endurance stainless steel straws, made by RSVP, are made of high quality 18/8 stainless steel. As not all stainless steel is created equal, it is important to note that this type (type 304) is of superior quality--it's durable, corrosion-resistant, and will not leach into foods. The straws come in two 2 styles: straight and bent. Although the straws are dishwasher safe, it's recommended that a simple rinse after each use will keep it easier to keep clean. Also recommended for cleaning is the stainless steel brush cleaner.
The glass straws are made from borosilicate tubing which is the strongest glass commercially available and does not leach ANY toxins. There are several different styles: Simple Elegance is a standard style of drinking straw that also comes in a smaller version called, "Shorty". Choose the Beautiful Bends style if you are accustomed to drinking with the graceful bent straw. For added personality, the colored Decorative Dots glass straws are not only fun but functional too. They help with color coding drinks at a party and the dots help to prevent the straw from rolling off the table. Glass Dharma also makes an amazing testament to their product: "The glass straws are covered by an unbelievable Lifetime Guarantee Against Breakage - if they ever break, we’ll replace them for FREE!" It is also recommended to clean the glass straws with either a brush cleaner or the dishwasher. All of the glass straws fit conveniently into either the bamboo case or the hemp sleeve for taking with you on the go.
