FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I already use a reusable straw. What makes the Turtleneck Straw® so special compared to this one?
The special thing about our Turtleneck® Straw is its flexible mouthpiece. This is achieved through the use of flexible stainless steel with the material quality seal 1.4301. This makes our Turtleneck Straw® so extremely robust and stable – and also flexible. If other reusable drinking straws can either only be statically bent or used straight, our reusable straw gives you a free choice in this regard. Our stainless steel straw can be easily bent and yet is extremely stable. An important prerequisite for the safe bendability and longevity of our straw alternative. This means that it is in no way inferior to the original in terms of function, feel and design. And our reusable drinking straw is also food-safe, dishwasher-safe, mechanically and chemically safe and hygienically harmless. We were therefore able to eliminate all the weaknesses of previous alternatives and make the Tutleneck® Straw a real straw alternative that can be used by absolutely everyone.
What is the best way to clean it? Is it dishwasher safe?
Our reusable straw is dishwasher safe and can therefore be cleaned quickly and without leaving any residue either in the dishwasher or with the cleaning brush provided. Compared to common straws made of metal or stainless steel, the Turtleneck® Straw is flexible and has a large opening so that the water can flow through even better during cleaning. By the way, the material of our straw alternative also ensures that the Turtleneck® Straw is at least as hygienic to clean as, for example, a glass straw. Because our stainless steel is extremely robust and durable and can easily withstand temperatures of up to 80 degrees in the dishwasher - germs and viruses are removed just as safely as beverage residues. We have also developed a special cleaning brush and a dishwasher basket for the catering industry. This means that more drinking straws can be cleaned at the same time without leaving any residue in a short time. This saves time and personnel and provides additional safety when using our stainless steel straw alternative.
How is the Turtleneck® Straw made?
We also pay attention to fairness and sustainability in the production, packaging and shipping of our stainless steel straws. Our partner's factory in the German-Chinese zone is located in an eco-park that manufactures according to European social and environmental standards ( http://www.sgep-qd.de/index/index ). Our reusable straw is also packaged and shipped in 100% plastic-free and biodegradable cotton or paper packaging.
