Woman's 'genius' toilet brush cleaning hack will leave your loo sparkling in minutes


Toilet brushes are essential for keeping your loo spotless, but it’s crucial to ask yourself how often you actually clean the brush itself.

We’ve all been in that situation where we’re frantically scrubbing the toilet before guests arrive, aiming for that pristine look. However, with every vigorous clean, your toilet brush accumulates more grime, potentially spreading bacteria back into the bowl, which is far from ideal.

Drench advises that toilet brushes need a good wash every week and should be replaced biannually due to being “riddled with germs” as “all that bacteria you’ve scrubbed away from the toilet is now thriving on your brush.”

Luckily, @home_reimagined on TikTok has shared a brilliant hack to get your brush sparkling in no time.

After using your toilet bowl cleaner, it’s vital to “disinfect it” and let it “dry before storing”. For this trick, make sure your toilet is already clean since the handle rests between the seat and the lid, reports the Mirror.

For a mere £2.49 at Tesco or even less at Poundland for £2, Flash bathroom cleaning spray guarantees “sparkling clean surfaces” and ensures you won’t have to touch a germ-infested toilet brush handle again. Afterward, spritz your toilet brush with any disinfectant spray to keep it hygienic.

@home_reimagined shared a top tip, writing: “After scrubbing your toilet, gently rinse your toilet bowl scrubber and disinfect it, before letting it dry between the seat covers. Always do this before storing so that you do not increase mould and mildew from a wet, dirty toilet brush!”.

A curious follower queried in the comments section, “I don’t get why the toilet brush has to be disinfected?” Drench highlighted the importance of hygiene, cautioning that “toilet brushes can be riddled with germs” and advised “it’s best to replace them every six months so you don’t just spread germs around the toilet bowl every time you scrub.”

They also suggested opting for a silicone toilet brush as “the bacteria doesn’t get caught up in the bristles”. The advice was met with enthusiasm in the comments, with users expressing gratitude: “Thank you for this!”.
