Coffee might be America's favorite drink in the morning but have you stopped to think about how much you're putting your teeth through each time you take a sip?
It's true, coffee can stain you teeth with time. That's because coffee contains little organic substances called tannins that stick to your teeth's enamel and cause discoloration. Tannins are also found in some teas and wine so be careful when consuming those as well.
But while it might seem like there's nothing we can do about this, there is a something that can be done to protect your pearly whites from those harsh tannins.
The people at the Koffie Straw Company created a collection of reusable straws designed to that help prevent your teeth from stains. According to the product description, the straws work for coffee, tea, wine, juicing with tumeric and other sipping drinks. They are sold in a set that includes one 8-inch straw, one 10-inch staw and a cleaning brush.
Shop: Koffie Straw NAVY, $11.99
Although navy is the color pictured above, you can choose from an array of colors.
But one of the best things about these straws is that they're non-stick silicone, which means they're super flexible. Unlike a metal straw or a paper straw that often gets soggy, you can bend these and bite down on them as much as you want.
Given that single-use plastic straws have been cited by some as one of the biggest factors contributing to beach pollution, these may be worth considering.
