Another super great benefit of reusable straws (bamboo, metal, silicone) is they can help keep you teeth white. You can use them with hot or cold drinks.
You want to especially use a straw with drinks like tea, coffee, colorful juices, smoothies and sodas. This will reduce teeth staining as the drink bypasses your teeth. You can’t really do this with a disposable plastic straw because the plastic can soften or melt and add a plastic taste to your drink. Worse, a lot more of the plastic chemical leaches into your drink with the higher temps. Not healthful. Plus adds to pollution.
Another advantage is the metal or bamboo straw doubles as a great stirrer too.
We never use to think of drinking our hot drinks with a reusable straw. But now we are! New trend people….
