How do I care for my Thinkster of Steel?
Thinksters are dishwasher safe (Top Rack recommended). The markings are embossed into the metal so they will not come off. The logo is laser etched into the material. We do not use lead in our paint, which is what predominately makes paint stick. The US and EU standards actually allow for low levels of lead. We specifically do not want lead in our products.
When washing thinkster in the dishwasher, we recommend using a detergent that is free of chlorine. Most of the natural detergents on the market from Eco Lever to Seventh Generation should be free of toxic chemicals. If hand-washing, the American Pediatrics Association suggests using warm soapy water, but only if you live in an area with treated water systems.
We highly recommend purchasing a box of Thinkster replacement straws at time of purchase. Silicone straws last between 2-3 months depending on use. It is important to take feeding products away from little ones after they have finished eating, so that they are not confused with chew toys.
Replace straws if they become worn or broken.
Before first use:
We recommend sterilizing the Thinkster of Steel in boiling water for 2 to 5 minutes before first use. We do not recommend utilizing sterilizers, as we cannot guarantee that the ones on the market were made with safe materials. The Thinkster of Steel is NOT microwave safe. In fact, we strongly suggest that parents do away with the use of microwaves for all items and products destined for your little one.
