Especially some families like to use brightly colored chopsticks with colorful lacquer for their children. The children's tolerance to lead and benzene is very low, so they must be avoided;

2. Secondly, the texture of plastic chopsticks is relatively brittle, and it is easy to deform and melt after heating, and produce harmful substances; bone chopsticks have good texture, but are easy to change color, and the price is relatively expensive; metal chopsticks such as silver and stainless steel are too heavy and feel It is not good, and the thermal conductivity is strong, it is easy to burn the mouth when eating overheated food;

How to maintain chopsticks

Let's take a look at how to maintain chopsticks and extend the life of chopsticks as much as possible.

First of all, the family try not to mix chopsticks. Because mixed use, it is easy to cause cross-infection of some diseases. Studies have shown that nearly half of people have Helicobacter pylori, which causes stomach problems, and most of these bacteria are transmitted through families. Chopsticks are one of the important transmission media. Therefore, chopsticks at home should be dedicated to someone.

Secondly, clean chopsticks thoroughly. Many Chinese families are very "outrageous" when washing chopsticks. Put a whole set of chopsticks under the faucet and rub them in the chopstick holder. As everyone knows, it is easy to breed bacteria on the chopsticks and enter the human body with food, endangering human health. The correct washing method should be: wash the chopsticks carefully with detergent, drain the water, and then put it in the chopstick holder. Moreover, the chopstick holder should be hollowed out, with no water accumulation at the bottom, and should be cleaned and disinfected frequently.

Again, chopsticks should be replaced frequently. In many families, it is common to use a pair of chopsticks for two or three years. However, once the chopsticks are used for a long time, the surface is no longer smooth, and frequent scrubbing can easily make the chopsticks rough, and there are many small grooves, which are very easy to retain bacteria. Therefore, it is best to replace chopsticks every six months.

Finally, part of the chopsticks maintenance is attributed to the chopstick cage, and the chopstick cage should also be cleaned frequently.
