While working with our clients, we are discussing a lot of things, and besides the price, and the safety of grass straws, almost all of our customers are very interested in knowing how to efficiently store grass straws and how to properly use them. Some people decide to buy cheap non-brand drinking grass straws because of their low price, but they often can not store them with needed care and in time the straws are getting moldy. That is a bad situation for the customers and can deeply affect other companies.
Lepironia.com is ready to share some of the insights on how to safely store grass straws and also on how to use them. There is one big difference from the other straws. The grass straws are made only from natural grass, which is called Lepironia articulata, so they will need some extra care and proper storage. The grass straws are available in two types and can be either fresh or dried. They have a range of differences in the production process and in the storage conditions. Let’s first take a look at the fresh grass straws.
How are fresh grass straws being made?
The fresh grass straws are made from natural Vietnamese grass called Lepironia articulata, which has to be more than 1 year old. The production process looks like this: the grass is first being cut, then insides are getting clean and washed with ozone to ensure that straws are clear from bacteria and are safe to use. The fresh grass straws are not getting dried, and just stored in the special Styrofoam box in order to keep the fresh straws safe during the delivery and to keep them fresh.
How to safely store the fresh grass straws?
The fresh grass straw is not a dried product, so it requires careful storage. After receiving the batch of fresh grass straws from the factory, we are immediately storing them in the fridge. Because the straws are fresh, they have only a short time of storage, and according to the guidelines provided by the factory, the fresh grass straws have to be used within seven days from the production. You will have to throw it away if you will not use them within seven days, and the straws will simply organically decompose. Even though fresh grass straws have an advantage in price, they are still less popular because of the shorter time for use.
