Once you happily receive your bamboo straws, clean it with hot water and dishwashing soap. The bamboo straws are handmade, and have undergone no chemical process. So, it will be useful to clean before your first sip – or not if you’re adventurous. You may then rinse your bamboo straw and dry immediately for keeping. Or use straightaway on your favorite drink! However, keep in mind to always dry your bamboo straw when you are finished with it.
Wash your bamboo straws after every use. A rinse under the tap would suffice, but you may wash it with dishwashing soap on a daily basis. Just remember to dry your bamboo straws immediately after. Bamboo straws dry quickly! Soaking or keeping them wet for too long a period may weaken the bamboo.
Aside from keeping your bamboo straws dry, keep them well-ventilated as well. Do not store in airtight containers. You may keep them in their carrying pouch. These pouches are breathable canvas made from organic cotton so you may keep them in their pouches closed.

You will be glad to know that even if you happen to shorten the lifespan of your bamboo straw, they can easily be disposed properly, and you can just get another bamboo straw without adding weight to your conscience.
