Could you spray a bit of silicone lubricant down there? I find that silicone lubricant is excellent for stopping plastic catching and sticking against plastic

Good point, could you call the number on the back of the can and I expect they will have a technical helpline who will be able to confirm (maybe look at a can in the shop and call before buying).. fingers crossed

It will be fine using silicone spray on the vents as they are only plastic.

Could you fish the straw out by sticking a coat hanger wrapped with sellotape (sticky side on the outside) to try and stick on to it so you can pull it back out

I wonder if it would harm to just leave it there
