Finnish scrubbing whisks
£7.50 – £13.50
Stiff looped, single straight bound, or medium stiff dense double straight bound scrubbing whisks from Finland. The looped and single bound whisks are made from yellow rice root (the stripped and dried roots of zatacon, a Mexican grass); the double bound whisks from black arenga (harvested from the trunks of sugar palms). All make excellent pot scrubbers, the zatacon whisks with a light scouring action are also good for removing mud from winter boots, sports shoes, or wellingtons; the arenga being slightly softer makes an excellent general purpose washing up or vegetable scrubber, as well as acting as a small stiff broom for the removal of dried mud from shoes, clothes, and fabrics. All are hand bound with flax twine by the visually impaired craftspeople of a Vantaa based Finnish cooperative. All measure between 13cm and 15cm.
