Appearance & Colour

Its usual for straws to change their appearance
 
DISHWASHER FADING
Fading happens when pigments in paint are exposed to extreme conditions

'Seasoning' of the wood also causes colour to change when natural pigments in wood are exposed to extreme conditions

Timber straws are still safe to use, when this happens

STAINING
Rinse straight after use to help prevent staining
Tomato juice & other substances may leave a permanent stain

SCREENS
Colours may not show true on all computer or device screens

TIPS
Always let your timber straws dry fully
Dry them standing up - so water does not collect at the bottom
