The Swipstix is not a disposable utensil. It is a durable, long-lasting eating tong.

Caring for this eco-friendly foodie tool is easy. Simply wash by hand in warm, soapy water then rinse. However, Swips are also dishwasher-safe (top shelf), and can withstand thousands of dishwashings.

Always wash, dry and store your Swip loosely, where it will not become twisted or get scrunched by other items.

The Swip is a high-tech eating utensil; it is not a toy. As you would with any cutlery, supervise children’s use.
