Anti-scalding Straw / straw

Anti-scalding Straw
Anti-scalding Straw

People often get scalded when drinking hot beverage. Made of a heat-sensitive material, Anti-scalding Straw can solve this problem easily. It expands to block the straw when a beverage is too hot to consume,and once the drink cools to a suitable temperature, the straw contracts to allow liquid to pass through. Children and adults will love using this straw to make sure their drinks are just the right temperature.
