Unfortunately my silly pregnancy brain forgot to check the price when I saw them and I can't see it anywhere else online. However, Primark are selling metal straws in packs of 4. I'd bet there one of the cheapest out there and perfect to take out and about with you to save using plastic ones 😁!

How do you clean them? My instinctive reaction is they seem unhygenic, you can't even look through them to check for dirt.

Best post ever.
I found these while shopping a few days ago.

4 metal straws for £2.50, they're a lot cheaper than elsewhere I've seen and are perfect to take out and about with you so you don't have to use plastic ones :)!

(I know they're packed in plastic, but it's a start 🙈!)

I bought an 8 pack from Amazon for £2.99, has 4 small and 4 large straws, however I don’t think they’re that price now but worth keeping an eye out for if need be.
no wonder kids have no teeth

I’d be interested to know that they clean up alright? Until then I’ll stick with paper straws!

Pretty sure they come with a cleaning brush (the ones in Aldi did anyway)

The ones I bought from Aldi came with like a pipe cleaning brush that you slide through the straw.

Mine came with 2 cleaning brushes that go right the way through them.
its great that these exist but to package them in so much plastic is a bit ridiculous. I thought it was to reduce plastic!!

Not an unfair point, but at the same time, you won't be packaging these in fresh plastic every time you use them.

In my house we used to get through hundreds of disposable straws a year. That greatly outwieghs the little bit of packaging our metal ones came in.

Any how do you keep them clean when they are being carried around everywhere in case of the slight chance you fancy a drink?
They don't look particularly sturdy, so I imaging they are very easy to crush or bend out of shape and split.

We don't carry them around anywhere, they stay in the house. And they are actually very sturdy. If you try and bite down on one it won't bend and you'll just end up hurting your teeth.

EDIT: I'm talking about the ones I bought from Aldi by the way. Not the Primark ones in this deal.

No good for people with fillings these!
Reminds me of telescopic aerials.

Possibly an overreaction, but I'd be constantly worried about small kids running around with metal straws in their mouths. A flexible biodegradable material would solve it. Quick Google shows these.
I was looking at these the other day and it concerned me that a child could easily poke their eye out when they bend down to pick something up off the floor.

My kids have flown the nest now so not a prob for me (I do have grandkids tho)
And for the environment, straws used to be made from paper - not horrible plastic - and you can get Black paper Straws here for £20 a Thousand. thirstybox.co.uk/bla…tml

Voted hot. Primark is very good quality and very good prices. But best of their stock never reaches the smaller stores. I see so much variety in Central London and bigger stores but nothing new in smaller stores which are filled with only Small and Extra Small leftover sizes and dull grim colours most of the time.

This sort of thing can come in handy now £5 and £10 notes are plastic.
Does anyone know how many times you have to use a metal straw to make it 'carbon neutral' against the plastic ones you would have used? No judgement meant to OP. Good find.

Kids will be kids, sooner or later they'll run out of eyes to lose.
The easiest way to clean these is to suck boiling water through them.
