Comment: I never bought proper drinking glasses when I moved into my new apartment. Instead I began collecting and reusing Pom Tea glasses and eventually glass peanut butter jars (that I can't seem to get the labels off of). The bottles that Pom Tea come in are designed to be reused as drinking glasses, but they're fairly narrow and I can never seem to get a sponge or my hand deep enough in them for a thorough cleaning. This never caused too much of a problem, as I usually just drink water out of them, but occasionally a glass of milk would leave behind a trace of dairy that I couldn't seem to reach, leaving my next few glasses of water tasting like skim milk. I had been meaning to get a bottle brush for a while now, but kept forgetting to pick one up when I was out. But now I've finally got the perfect tool for cleaning all of my jars (as well as my Klean Kanteen). I love that it's Oxo, but I hate that it's plastic. I had the option of a natural bristle and wood brush, but wasn't sure how long it would last. The Oxo wand allows me to replace just the sponge head when it's been worn out (although a portion of the sponge is plastic that screws on to the wand). So, I'm not sure which was the more responsible choice in the long run. But this seems to serve it's purpose well and should last me quite a while.
