Joie Reusable Stainless Steel Drinking Straws - Pack of 6 5 "Better than the paper straws" Mrs knott 11 January 2019 I miss plastic straws. I really do! I hate the paper straws. I have to drink fast or they break up in my drink. I'm eating bits of paper.... So leading up to Christmas I decided to try these. The hook was that they came with a cleaning brush. First time I used 1 I clashed my teeth on it. Yikes! Next time I was more aware (I was a straw chewer) and these are brilliant. And so easy to clean. I really miss plastic straws, I do. But this is the best alternative I've found.
