Now, let's turn our attention to a matter of utmost importance: the proper care of your cherished Tawashi Scrubbers. These exceptional cleaning companions deserve meticulous attention to ensure their longevity and unwavering effectiveness.

Today, I am delighted to provide you with key care steps for your Tawashi Scrubbers. By following these simple instructions diligently, you will be able to effortlessly remove trapped dirt and conquer even the most stubborn grease residue, ensuring that your scrubbers continue to perform at their best.

Removing Trapped Dirt: To keep your tawashi scrubber performing at its best, it's important to remove any trapped dirt. Run the scrubber under running water while gently untangling the fibers. You can also rub two scrubbers together under water to loosen the dirt easily.

Cleaning Sticky Grease Residue: Sometimes, your tawashi scrubber can become sticky and greasy after cleaning oily surfaces. In such cases, you can address this by using a mild detergent to wash the scrubber. Additionally, pouring warm water (below 90 degrees Celsius) over the scrubber will effectively remove the sticky grease, ensuring it remains clean and hygienic without any risk of damage.

Regular Maintenance: Maintaining your tawashi scrubber is key to its longevity. After each use, rinse the scrubber thoroughly with water, squeeze out the excess water, and let it air dry in a well-ventilated area. For optimal results, it's recommended to sun-dry the scrubber once a week.

Using Bleach: If mold appears on your tawashi scrubber, you can use bleach to clean it. Follow the bleach instructions carefully, rinse the scrubber thoroughly, and avoid using excessive bleach or leaving it on for too long. Strong bleach or frequent use can weaken the natural fibers, making them brittle. Oxygen-based or enzyme-based bleaches are recommended over chlorine-based ones. If using bleach, dilute it in the recommended amount of water and soak the scrubber for about 30 minutes.

No Boiling: To preserve your tawashi scrubber's integrity, avoid boiling it as it cannot withstand high temperatures. Instead, disinfect it by pouring hot water below 90 degrees Celsius over the scrubber.

Extra Tips for Care: Sun-drying your tawashi scrubber once a week not only aids in faster drying but also utilizes the germicidal properties of sunlight. The best time for sun-drying is between 10 am and 2 pm when the UV rays are most effective.

By following these simple care steps, you can keep your tawashi scrubbers in great condition for a long time. Remember to rinse them well, dry them properly, and occasionally give them some sun. With proper care, your tawashi scrubbers will continue to serve you well in your cleaning tasks.
