These silicone straw covers will protect your beloved Stanley, and they're only $1 a pop for Presidents' Day

If you're the proud owner of a Stanley Adventure Quencher, aka the world's most popular cup, you probably take it everywhere you go. That's the beauty of the tumbler's design — it has a slim base to fit into your car's cupholders, a handle for easy carrying and a straw you can quickly sip from. The thing is, that straw isn't totally leak-proof and if you're not careful, it can get dirty. Luckily, it's nothing a little straw cover can't fix! These straw covers from Amazon come in a pack of five and they're on sale for only $6 this Presidents' Day, making them about $1 a pop.

These straw covers come in a range of colors and designs, but this set of simple pastels is a solid buy and a great deal.

Why is it a good deal?

These straw covers come in a pack of five and are currently 40% off, making them only $6 for the whole set. Of course, like your straw, they're reusable, too.

Why do I need these?

These covers can help prevent spills, dirt, dust or even bugs from entering your straw (don't think about it, just protect it), and they look pretty cute, too. They come in a range of colors and designs, including flowers and puppies, but the simple pastel ones are also a tasteful choice. Made with food-grade silicone, the covers are durable, reusable and easy to clean. You can rinse them out by hand or toss them in the dishwasher.

Of course, depending on the make of your Stanley cup, it might not make it totally leak-proof, but the straw covers can help prevent really big spills from happening.

We should also mention that while these straw covers are compatible with Stanley, they will work for any straw that's 9 – 11mm in size.

What reviewers say:

More than 1,200 Amazon shoppers give these straw covers a five-star rating — the highest rating you can give a product.

"Very practical and it works well," wrote one satisfied shopper. "Water doesn’t spill when you accidentally drop it. Fits well on a 20-ounce Stanley."

"I love these straw covers," wrote one happy customer. "It fits perfectly on my Stanley straw and very cute. I like the chunky silicone. It's very functional. We're having a problem with gnats at my work and now I won't have to worry about them getting in my drink when I step away from my office."

"A bug decided to land on/in my straw, from which I took a sip from in the middle of the night," shared another customer with a bug problem. "Needless to say, these covers have given me the peace of mind to enjoy my favorite non-Stanley mug."

The only complaint some shoppers make is that they wish they came in darker, neutral colors. "It is extremely difficult to find 10mm straw covers that are plain," shared one shopper. "I wanted solid black... These were the only ones I could find that were close. They work fine for a Simple Modern tumbler."

They're easy to put on and take off of straws up to 9 – 11mm.
