Keeping paper straws dry?
So with the current push to get rid of plastic drinking straws, I'm starting to see paper straws coming up. How do they prevent them from soaking through?

PAPER MADE STRAWS WERE USED LONG LONG TIME AGO LONG BEFORE YEAR 1960. IT IS ROLLED UP WITH A THIN LONG SMALL CUT PAPER AND THEN INSERT INTO HARDEN GLUE , ADD THIN COAT OF WAX AS WATERPROOF ITEM.

Paper straws are wax coated to prevent soaking through. The wax coating also makes them non-recyclable.

A very light coating of wax would do that.

They don't. There is no way to keep them impervious in use. They always go soggy after a relatively short period of use.
