Save money on straws by using them as many times as possible.  Keep them clean on the inside by using a pipe cleaner.  Put your straw or straws in soapy water.  Clean the outside, and then run the pipe cleaner in and out of the straw until it is clean.  Be sure and dry the straw thoroughly before putting it away.
