Toilet Brush Basics

Let’s face it, your toilet sometimes gets dirty. And when it does, you turn to your toilet brush to take care of one of the more undesirable messes in your home.  Unfortunately, what you’re cleaning out of your toilet is often left over on the brush. Then the nasty brush is typically left dirty and wet, sitting in the corner of the bathroom to become a target for stain and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew. Not only the bristles become dirty, the toilet brush handle often harbors bacteria, as well.

Simple Solution

Save yourself some hassle and clean your toilet brush in the toilet you’ve just cleaned. Add two cups of bleach to the toilet, then let the brush soak in the bowl for a few hours. Remember to ventilate the room with a fan or open window while this is happening. When the brush is done soaking, rinse it with clean water and allow it to dry completely before storing. Letting it hang over the side of the bathtub is generally a good place for drying.


Best Solution

In addition to regularly cleaning your toilet brush, built-in antimicrobial technology can help keep your toilet brush cleaner. This innovative technology is built into some toilet brushes and provides around the clock protection against stain and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew. This durable technology will keep working for the life of the product - even while it’s in storage.
