I have not reviewed many items, but I had to take the time to review this brush because every Nalgene bottle owner should have this bottle brush.
When I received my brush in the mail, some of the bristles on the end were flattened out from being in the box. After sitting on the counter overnight, the bristles had straightened back to their original form. So if yours has "bed head" when you get it, don't freak. It'll probably go back to normal with a little time.
The only issue I have is the bristles might be a little too soft, so I have to soak my bottles overnight with a bleach solution in order to loosen the gunk. I could scrape the film away with a chopstick.
OXO tactile rubbery grip
Excellent balance between too soft and too firm bristles
Long bristles and narrow head to clean almost any type bottle
VERY close to being too short (effective length 8)
May actually be too short for some of the klean kanteen bottles I've seen
THE BOTTOM LINE:
Was very pleased with brush: feels solid, cleans well, gets into spaces ... until two days ago when - after five months usage - I actually looked INTO the bristles where they emerge from the brush and saw stains. Since the bristle material is the same for its length as far as I can tell, I thought stains just at the end were odd, and when I examined them, it was clear the stain was NOT a stain but RUST emerging FROM THE HANDLE and now spread to the bristles.
My best guess is that the CORE of the brush is formed from an iron-containing wire that is wrapped around the filaments to hold them in place. Perhaps they thought the holes were waterproof (why?), but in fact after only a few months of use water apparently got inside the handle, rusted the core, and has now allowed that rust to bleed out onto the bristles where it can presumably leech or flake onto whatever it has been used to wash.
NOT GOOD PEOPLE. You wouldn't eat with a rusty fork; this is no different.
And for those who want to know about storage, while the brush is used - as intended - to wash items including, e.g. a cafetiere or French press every day, afterwards it is stored HANDLE DOWN into a repurposed vase so as to ensure the bristles dry between uses, a practice intended to ensure that no mold could grow.
I have attached an image so you can see for yourself what I mean.
An unusual #EpicFail for Oxo, a company I like, but someone was NOT on the ball on this one and G-d forbid it's used to wash baby bottles!
OXO: learn from this!!!! You're getting lazy! Due diligence matters!
