Our 11 3/4″ (30cm) long, 8mm outside diameter stainless steel straws fit in most of our straw hole lids and are perfect for drinking any beverage. Current production Half Gallon jars are all wide mouth, so get wide mouth lids.
Half gallon jars are probably best reserved for drinking water, and they are also not very portable. Set one on your desk in the morning and you probably won’t need to refill it all day! Stay safe from chemical leach, and stay hydrated!
The 10.5mm locking tab near the end will hold the straw in our straw hole lids so they cannot fall out without removing the lid. Kids probably won’t be drinking from a half gallon jar, but if the jar gets tipped over the straw stays in. You need to put the straw in the jar first, then put the lid over the top and screw it on.
Mason jar straw hole lids can have different sized holes, so be sure to double check that your straws and lids are compatible.
The most reliable way to clean reusable straws is our straw cleaner with soap and hot water. They are also dishwasher safe, or a quick rinse might be sufficient. You can also boil these to disinfect them if you want to.
My personal cleaning routine is to rinse them after use, put them in the dishwasher, then run a straw cleaner through them and rinse again before putting them away. My dishwasher usually gets them clean but sometimes leaves a little residue so this ensures they are clean.
Stainless Steel is one of the most commonly used materials in the kitchen, used to make cookware, utensils, commercial food processing and storage equipment, and more. Stainless steel will not leach any chemicals into your beverage like plastic can.
Every day, 500 million disposable straws are used in the US! Start being part of the solution instead of part of the problem! You could use these straws for the rest of your life!
