This scrub brush has been a mainstay of Japanese household cleaning for over 100 years. Each tawashi must pass over 20 quanlity control checks before it can be wrapped in its distinctive Kamenoko orange paper with turtle logo.
Made of 100% palm fibers. Kamenoko tawashi contain more palm fibers than most, making them longer lasting. Palm fibers can withstand repeated water exposure and are durable but not abrasive, making them perfect for scrubbing vegetables and cleaning pots and pans. We love using ours on cast iron.
The twist design eliminates the outer wire ring and its length make it ideal for cleaning deep or hard to reach items, such as drinking glasses. The natural palm fiber is biodegradable. Made in Japan.
The meaning of "kamenoko tawashi" comes from the Japanese words for baby turtle and scrubber — a reference to the turtle-like shape and its connection to water and longevity.
