What does BPA mean?
BPA stands for biphenol A. It is an industrial chemical used in certain plastic products. When these products become hot, BPA can be released into the contents of the product. When it is consumed, exposure to BPA can negatively affect the brain and is especially harmful to fetuses, infants, and children. Products made with BPA cannot be heated in microwaves, cleaned in dishwashers, or even left in the sun for too long, as the material will begin to break down from the heat.
What is estrogenic activity (EA)? Androgenic activity (AA)?
Estrogen and testosterone are hormones that are essential to many important biological processes in animals and humans, including sexual differentiation and development. Studies have suggested that certain synthetic and naturally occurring chemicals can interfere with these processes and lead to adverse effects. Endocrine disruptors are defined as chemicals that can activate or inhibit the human endocrine system and ultimately lead to adverse health effects. Among endocrine disruptors, chemicals that mimic estrogen and testosterone in living animals are said to be estrogenic (EA) and androgenic (AA), respectively.
What is Tritan?
Tritan™ is an amorphous co-polyester. The material is derived from vegetable based sources, so it is free of BPA, EA, AA and carcinogens. The characteristics of Tritan include excellent clarity and heat- and shatter-resistance. It is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for repeated use in contact with food and beverages.

Will I still be able to fully experience wine?
Yes. Tfees™ is designed to bypass your teeth only, delivering your beverage over the full palate of your tongue. You won't miss a note!
How do I clean my Tfees™ ?
For best care, wash or rinse your straws and case soon after each use. Tfees™ straws and case are dishwasher safe. They can also be cleaned with dish soap and water, make sure to rinse thoroughly. Debris or any discoloring is easily cleaned by soaking or light brushing with a narrow baby bottle brush inside straw and case (choose a brush that is labeled bpa free) then rinse thoroughly with soap and water. Allow Tfees™ straws and case to dry standing upright before returning straws to case. The case is air tight when closed to prevent any leaking.
How often should I clean my Tfees™ ?
We recommended that you clean Tfees™ after every use.
Are Tfees™ safe for kids?

Did you know...
White wine contributes to stained teeth, too! Although it doesn't have much color, the acid in white wine erodes enamel, leaving it open to staining.
Tooth enamel is the strongest substance in the body. It protects your teeth from wear, heat, and cold. But when enamel erodes, the nerves of your teeth are too open to stimulation. That's what causes pain!
All teas stain your teeth. Just like berries, tea is good for you, but can cause tooth staining and erosion.
