It takes one hell of a cleaning accessory to get us excited about handwashing dishes and pots, but these Iris Hantverk handmade Swedish brushes are so beautiful, pot scrubbing almost becomes pleasurable. Almost.
Their dish and pot brushes are made from natural Swedish wood, and use goat or horse hair which cuts through grease and won’t scratch surfaces. And Iris Hantverk is a non-profit organization that employs the visually impaired in Sweden to make these gorgeous utensils. So if the natural materials didn’t sell you, this last fact certainly did.
Get your rubber gloves on. —Alexandra Suhner Isenberg
