The Bottle Brush

For weeks now I have been on the hunt for the perfect bottle brush. I have tried several different types and have settled on one that I find to be inexpensive and very effective. I am sad to report however, that it is not very eco-friendly. The fisher price bottle brush sold at Dollar General Stores is the best bang for your buck. Priced at $1.00, you can’t beat it.

It has a swivel head for easy turns and a small brush for crevices – perfect for cleaning breast pump parts and bottle nipples. Unlike it’s alternatives that contain only plastic ends, this brush contains miniature sponges that truly “wipe” each and every crevice of the bottle without having to do a lot of extra twisting and scrubbing. My only complaint is that it is not made of biodegradable plastic. If you are looking for an eco-friendly alternative and do not desire the small brush end, the Coir Bottle Brush is a good alternative. (Visit this website for more product information: http://www.getngreen.com/store/Products/Coir-Bottle-Brush__01560.aspx) The bristles are made of a biodegradable fiber that comes from coconut husks and the handle is made of wood.

I recommend cleaning bottle brushes by either soaking it in a mix of “green” dish soap with a little bit of vinegar or running it through the dishwasher with an eco-friendly detergent.
