    Pipe cleaners / Cleaning out Straws....

    I am looking for some pipe cleaners - basically I need something like a pipe cleaner to clean out the narrow straw of my LO's sippy cup as sometimes milk or food get stuck in there.

    1) Any suggestions for where to buy Pipe Cleaners?

    2) Besides pipe cleaners, any suggestions for how to get the narrow/thin straw of a sippy cup clean?

    Thanks.

    Spotlight at Mega Box in Kowloon Bay has "pipe" cleaners that we use for cleaning our straws. There is also a shop in Sai Kung, I don't know the name but the English speaking "locals" call it Harrods because it sells everything, that has a straw cleaner (like the bottle brushes).

    jaetee,

    of course there are straw cleaners on the market (businessman know how to make money out of parents). As described by 2boys, it's very similar to the milk bottle brushes except that it's much thiner (made for straws). you could get them at Eugene on Q.R.C (next to H&M). That's where I got mine, from memory they also carry a few brands.

    Try the Jusco $10 stores. I had a hard time finding them too and couldn't stand how dirty the straws got...was so happy when I found them there!

    Thanks for the suggestions - will try Eugene and Jusco.

    Unfortunately Spotlight and Sai Kung are a bit far for me to travel...:(

    Thanks again. :)
