For the tougher jobs in your sink, a stiff bristle brush makes all the difference. The Homeplistic Natural Wood Dish Brush is as nice looking as it is functional. It is made of natural, renewable resources, is completely non-toxic, and is excellent for scrubbing dirty plates, pots, and other dishes.
The head is removable so you can save the handle when the brush wears out and reduce waste. Replacement heads are sold separately and are compostable after their life.
