Kamenoko Tawashi

Cleaning Brush - Half Hard

$ 12
Natural coconut fiber tawashi cleaning brushes take care of all your heavy-duty or hard-to-reach scrubbing needs.

This modern tawashi cleaning brush is made from contrasting brown and white coconut fibers. Fibers harvested from coconut shells are trimmed short for a stiffer scrub. Use this brush to clean stubborn stains on nabe pots and frying pans, even to remove dirt and peel the skin off of root vegetables like carrots or burdock root. Take advantage of the elongated shape of this tawashi to reach the bottom of mugs or tall glasses. Slender and easy to grip even by smaller hands.

Features of Coconut Fiber Brushes
The tips of coconut fibers are uneven and moderately firm. They are great at thoroughly scooping out and scrubbing away dirt and grime, making them perfect for cleaning brushes. However, these fibers are rather stiff, making them less well-suited for use on fragile surfaces.
