This long slender brush has quickly become one of our favorite go-to tools for washing up. Individually hand-crafted in Sweden from natural tampico fibers and pretty, pale waxed birch wood, this brush's long, slender handle feels good in the hand and, paired with the narrow head (with its slightly upturned nose), is the perfect length and shape for getting all around deep stock pots and stubborn frying pans alike. The natural fiber bristles are the ideal firmness- sturdy enough to tackle old scrambled eggs, soft enough to do so without scratching the surface of precious pans.
Take Care: With a bit of easy maintenance, this brush can last for years. Clean the bristles with plain water or the soap of your choosing, shake out excess water, and allow brush to dry with the bristles down. Occasionally oil the wood with your preferred wood conditioner (we swear by Old Mill's All Natural Beeswax and Mineral Oil Wood Polish, available right here at The Foundry), being sure to allow enough time for the wood to absorb the oil before its next use.
Lillian owns + loves these things!
This guy is good for "medium" icky dishes. Like egg yolk on a plate or tomato seeds glued to a cutting board after sandwich time. The Tampico bristles are tough but do soften up just a bit in water. Anna gave me one in 2014 the first week I started training at The Foundry and I haven't needed to replace it yet!
