Straws are banned in my house, well I should say “were banned” as I have allowed and actually like, the U-Konserve Stainless Steel ones my children have been testing over the past few week.
My children love to use straws but an incident 18 months ago ensured all straws were shown the door.
I had made a delicious banana smoothie. The kids loved to use straws for these kinds of drinks but I just couldn’t unblock the straws. I blew and blew and blew and then sucked and sucked until the week old banana smoothie was unblocked and in my mouth. Yuck.
So why do I like U Konserve stainless steel straws? For a start they are a little wider than usual. It seems unlikely they could be blocked but if they do you can clean them with the drinking straw brush. Great for someone like me who loves to make smoothies. It’s also great for someone like me who thinks about the environment. I will keep re-using the same ones, rather than throwing away the plastic ones each time they are used.
