Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

They’re fuzzy and have a wire in the middle, giving some oomph behind them. Fuzzy bristles allow for you to scrub the sides of a pipe with ease.
- Heavy
Available in various bundles of different quantities, we prefer Zen’s bristled pipe cleaners as they tend to be much better quality. Thanks to their tough bristles, they’re just as effective as most nylon brushes.
