Cleanliness of drinking straws in gastronomy

One of the most common questions most restaurateurs ask themselves is very clear: “How do I get the straws? clean?” First of all, one advantage that glass has over other materials is that you can see whether it is really clean . So guests can be sure that the straw has been cleaned well! But how exactly do you manage that it not only looks sparkling clean, but is also hygienically clean?

With the machine ...


Often it has to be very fast behind the counter, regardless of whether it is a bar or a restaurant. At first glance, it seems easier to get a disposable straw out of the pack, put it in the drink and then throw it away. But all the garbage that is created is not only bad for our environment, it also creates work! The garbage bag fills up faster, takes up space and must also be disposed of. 

The process of cleaning the glass drinking straws can be very simple together with cleaning the drinking glasses done - put everything together in the dishwasher and glasses and drinking straws are ready to use again! HALM drinking straws are Dishwasher safe and therefore do not do more work than the drinking glasses, which have to be cleaned anyway .

Our glass straws can withstand up to 200 degrees Celsius - This means that the heat of the dishwasher water is not a problem for the drinking straws, but also for them Hygiene guaranteed .

... or hand wash!

Not every company has a dishwasher at the counter?

That too is thanks to oursGastro brush no problem for the drinking straws, as this one delivers quick and clean results . Just like the glasses can be rinsed in the sink several stalks in hand and cleaned by the gastro-brush. After that rinse with hot water and after a short time they are dry and clean and can therefore be cleaned in the same breath as the drinking glasses, more precisely approximately 20 drinking straws in two minutes !

Our drinking straws are therefore no less hygienic than drinking out of the glass without a straw or using another type of straw, as these also have to be touched first to land in the drink. The drinking straws can be cleaned in the same process as the rest of the cutlery, glasses and plates that are used in catering.
