About the Straws

• Are Bamboo straws safe?
The bamboo straws of Bali Boo have been certified by an independent lab as food-grade safe. We don’t know about others, but our straws are 100% safe for consumption.

• Are bamboo straws hygienic?
Of course! As with everything, it depends on how you take care of your things. If you keep them clean and wash them after every use, 100% yes. We also provide you  2 brushes so you can clean them in-depth, a carry pouch so they don’t get dirty, and we give you all the tips to keep them nice and clean.

• Are Bamboo Straws Reusable?
Yes! Bamboo Straws are reusable, with the correct care, they will last you a very long time!

Are Bamboo Straws Biodegradable / Compostable? 
Yes! Our Bamboo Straws are 100% biodegradable. When you are done using them, you can easily compost them and they will biodegrade in no time!

• Do Bamboo Straws absorb/release any flavor from/into drinks?
No. According to our lab test reports, our bamboo straws don’t leave or absorb any flavor. In any case, we always recommend washing them before using the first time.

• Can I use Bamboo straws with hot drinks?
Yes! you can use bamboo straws with hot drinks, without any problem. To make sure the heat exchange is not too drastic, we always recommend heating up a bit the bamboo straw under lukewarm water, that will heat it up a bit and reduce the heat exchange difference.

•What is the size of bamboo straws? 
Being a natural product, diameters vary, our bamboo straws are around 5mm-11mm in diameter. The hole is approximately 1-2mm smaller than the full diameter. Our packs normally include a little bit of everything, narrow straws for cocktails and liquid drinks, and wider ones for milkshakes, smoothies, etc. The length of our standard straws are 20cm (8 inches), if you’d like to inquire about specific sizes, please contact us through our Wholesale page.

• How long do bamboo straws last?
With the correct care, bamboo straws can last a very long time! As with any natural product, the wear and tear will be a bit more noticeable than with other synthetic products, bamboo straws tend to darken a bit as the bamboo grows older, but they are still 100% usable, and safe.  Learn how to take care of them by checking out the “Care Instructions” tab.

• How do you clean a bamboo straw?
Cleaning is super easy, you can either throw them in the dishwasher or clean them in hot water with the brushes provided. To disinfect them completely, we recommend putting them in boiling water for 10 minutes, and they’ll be good as new! Remember, the most important part is to always dry them properly. If you’d like to know more, please check our “Care Instructions” tab.

• Are bamboo straws dishwasher safe? 
Yes! but we always recommend turning off the hot & dry function. Keep in mind it is a natural product, and that means that if the temperature exchange is very high, some might crack.

• Are bamboo straws child-safe?
Yes, our bamboo straws are child-safe. If your child is under 6 years old we always recommend keeping an eye out when they’re drinking from them. They are strong enough not to break when they bite,  and they won’t be able to swallow them.

• What are bamboo straws made of?
The hint is in the name, our bamboo straws are made of 100% natural bamboo. Each straw is made from a stalk of bamboo, and 1 bamboo stalk can make up to 10 straws. If you’d like to learn more about how our bamboo straws are made, we recommend visiting our How to make bamboo straws page.

• Are bamboo straws eco-friendly / are bamboo straws good for the environment?
Bamboo straws are probably the most eco-friendly reusable straw there is. Bamboo is the most sustainable plant on Earth, it grows incredibly fast, and has a very high regenerative process, without the use of fertilizers or chemicals. Plus, the process of creating a bamboo straw is probably the least energy-consuming when compared to other reusable drinking straws, we basically only use a bit of energy to boil them to disinfect them clean, and a lot of solar light to dry them!

The bamboo utensils of Bali Boo are 100% safe. They have been disinfected in a solution of water with vinegar before being packed and have been coated with virgin coconut oil, which is also edible.

• How to clean a bamboo utensil?
We recommend cleaning your bamboo utensils by hand. Just make sure to dry them properly and not leave them in contact with water for a long period of time, as this will cause the bamboo to soak in the water and darken.

• Are bamboo utensils dishwasher safe? 
We do not recommend putting our bamboo utensils in the dishwasher, but if you absolutely need to, make sure to turn off the hot and dry function.

• Are bamboo utensils microwaveable/oven safe/freezer safe?
No, we don’t recommend putting your bamboo utensils in a microwave, oven or freezer. The main reason is the temperature exchange, natural products don’t like extreme temperatures and putting them suddenly into very high, or very low temperatures can cause them to crack.

Yes! bamboo toothbrushes are the most eco-friendly option when it comes to plastic alternatives. The handle is biodegradable and compostable, so it will biodegrade in very little time.

• Are bamboo toothbrushes better than plastic ones?
Yes! And glad you asked! Have you ever thought that all the plastic toothbrushes you have ever used in your life, have 91% chances of still being on this planet? Bamboo toothbrushes biodegrade naturally. It can take up to 500 years for a plastic toothbrush to degrade into microplastics, and just a couple months for a bamboo one to do it completely naturally without leaving any residue.

• How long to bamboo toothbrushes last?
With the correct care, your bamboo toothbrush can last just like any other normal toothbrush. Worldwide Dental Associations recommend changing your toothbrush every 3 months, that’s 4 per year. Exactly the number we provide in our pack!

To dispose of your bamboo toothbrush, grab a pair of pliers and pull out the bristles, you can throw them into your plastic recycling bin. The handle, you can throw it to your compost, or reuse it in as many ways as you can imagine. If you’d like more information, please check the “Care Instructions” tab.

• How do I keep my bamboo toothbrush clean?
As with any toothbrush, make sure you rinse it clean after use. If you store your bamboo toothbrush in a cup, try to make sure it has a small opening in the bottom that lets water out, as the constant contact with water might damage your bamboo toothbrush.

• What are the benefits of a bamboo toothbrush?
The Bali Boo bamboo toothbrush is made of a 100% natural bamboo handle and Nylon bristles infused with activated bamboo charcoal. Activated bamboo charcoal helps to keep your mouth clean of bacteria, it is naturally whitening and removes stains much better than any other normal toothbrush.

• Why are the bristles of your bamboo toothbrushes made of nylon? 
Believe us when we say we’ve looked for hundreds of options. But the truth is that the only “all-natural” option that exists up to now, are bristles made of animal hair (pig, horse, even goat). Being that we like to keep our products Vegan, we opted to make our bamboo toothbrush from Nylon.  Nylon is a highly recyclable material, that is very resistant and easy to clean. We know its not perfect, but it’s definitely the best option out there.

About the Cotton Swabs

• Are bamboo cotton swabs safe?
Yes! The Bali Boo bamboo cotton swabs are safe, for you and for our planet. Nonetheless, it is always important to keep some precautions when using them, mostly when using them for ear cleaning. Never introduce the swab all the way into your ear, as you can harm your inner ear, always try to clean only the outer part.
