SAVE the SIPPIES - The ORIGINAL Sippy Straw Cleaner



I cannot begin to add up how much money we (my daughter and I) have wasted throwing away perfectly good Sippy Cups because we could not get the Yucky Gunk out of the straws and the tiny orifices in the lids. We have resorted to buying really cheap sippy cups that leak and break after just a few uses, because we don't want to spend up for a nice one that will end up in the trash bin in no time, simply because it gets dirty in the areas that we cannot possibly reach to clean.

Then we met Jennifer Reyes, the creator of The Sippy Straw Cleaner! She has totally changed our way of thinking about sippy cups. Now we can clean those Nasty straws and get into those tiny little areas that previously we tried to clean with such rudimentary tools like q-tips & toothpicks...and not very successfully I might add.


Jennifer has started the Save the Sippies Revolution with her wonderful Mom-Invented tool! Don't be fooled by cheap imitators who are selling the prototypes that she cast off while she worked tirelessly to create the Perfect Sippy Straw Cleaner...you should only accept the Triple Award Winning Original!




You may not believe it, but I actually had fun cleaning old sippy cups that were destine for the trash and making them like new again. Here are some pictures of my "Sippy Revitalization" in progress. You can see all the little nooks & crannies that I am able to finally clean!





And here it hangs...ready for the next Sippy that Needs Saving!


The Sippy Straw Cleaner comes with two Cleaner Brushes in each pack and retails for only $3.98, that is less then the cost of most Sippy Cups! One has a plastic polypropylene handle to help you keep a good grip on the brush while scrubbing and the other one has a twisted wire handle to allow the brush to go even deeper, this is especially nice for those really long straws. The rust-free stainless steel wire is flexible so that you can push it through curved areas like in the Silly Straws. The nylon bristles are just wide enough to thoroughly clean even the accordion type straws, while still narrow enough to squeeze into the smallest sippy straws. The Sippy Straw Cleaner is FDA aprroved and BPA Free and meets all of the strict federal guidelines.

The Sippy Straw Cleaner works great on other things too, like thermos straws, sports bottles, regular drinking straws and my husband has threatened to steal them for cleaning auto parts & whatever else he plays with out there in the garage.

Well, I could go on forever about how much we love the Sippy Straw Cleaner but I wont...lets get right to the fun!

I learned,
The Sippy Straw Cleaner underwent weeks of laboratory testing in New Jersey for verification of its compound makeup. I am happy to report that the Sippy Straw Cleaner is not only FDA approved, but BPA free and meets all the requirements of the US Consumer Product Safety Regulations.

I wasted a bunch of $$$ too. I would love to win this for my sister so she can save some $$$. Thanks, justicecw@hotmail.com
