For those of you who are moms, I’m sure you all have experienced this problem at some point – those annoying sippy cups with straws that you can never get clean! The regular sippy cups all come apart, so you can clean them pretty easily in the dishwasher…but I find that it’s just impossible to get those silly straws clean. It seems like no matter how many times I run it thru the dishwasher, there’s always some “gunk” that stays stuck in the middle. Or for those of you with older children or if you yourself use a thermos or water bottle with a straw – it’s just hard to really get in there to clean – you just run them thru hot water & hope it gets it clean!
Well, now there is a solution…stay-at-home mom, Jennifer Reyes, has invented a “Sippy Straw Cleaner“. The Sippy Straw Cleaner is BPA Free, FDA approved, and meets all of the requirements for the US Consumer Product Safety Regulations….so you know this is safe to use with products for your children!
Jennifer sent me a package containing 2 brushes, so I could try out the product for myself! We have quite the variety of sippy cups in our house, let me tell you…and I was able to test the Sippy Straw Cleaneron at least 3 different brands of sippy cups with straws. It fit into each straw perfectly and I was able to get in there and really scrub. Now that I’ll be able to do that on a regular basis, it will definitely keep them free of bacteria, and I can see them lasting much longer! How come no one ever thought of this before! Every mom with young children definitely needs to have one of these straw cleaners!! And now that water bottles & thermos are becoming more popular with the older kids, this is definitely something you’ll want to keep on hand for cleaning those straws out as well!!
The Sippy Straw Cleaner is very reasonable – just $3.98 for a 2 pack of brushes! This would make a great gift for a new mom or as a nice, little stocking stuffer for a friend with young children! Or just stock up on a few for yourself, so you can keep those sippy cups around longer & feel good about your kids using them safely!! If you’re interested in buying some, goHEREto order it!
