I have bought stainless steel a straws before and they're amazing. But these are slightly better because they're small and great for kids to take small sips, without choking. The straw cleaner is perfect to keep it clean and use time and time again.
Only one suggestion, is for future products to have a package of 4/5 in one because I thought a straw cleaner and a pouch for each straw was too excessive. I bought 12, so I'll stash the straw cleaners as replacement, and I'm yet to find a use for the spare pouches, as when we go out I pack 4 straws into one pouch.
