Cleaning tolet brushes

KarlaSharonKathy A


I just read an article about toilet brushes. Would it be gross to run the brush through the dishwasher (either empty or full) or is it just as easy to soak it overnight in vinegar?

    I actually toss mine in the washing machine with a load of clothes suitable. I have also placed it in a high tin can with bleach and let it soak overnight and then rinsed it good when I removed it.
  • That is what I do. Then hose off. Never ever in a dishwasher, that just gives me the willies!

    I always keep a spray bottle of bleach in my bathroom. Spray the brush over your shower or tub. Let it sit for a few minutes, and then rinse the brush with very hot water in the shower. Anyway, that's what I do.

    I often soak mine in the clean toilet with bleach, for as long as I can stand the smell. Then I rinse with a good flush or two. (I also clean the inside of my toilet tank pretty often, too.) 😇💞

    I agree with Peg and Naomie. Just the thought of using a dishwasher. YUUUUK!

    Personally, I think i putting it in the dishwasher is gross and I wash almost everything in the dishwasher. I would cut the top off a milk bottle and use your vinegar or a soapy bleach solution and soak it overnite. Personally, I've never given a tbb a separate bath; I figure I've just used some cleaning solution on it and rinsed it with clean toilet water.

    throw your toilet brush away! Lol. Go on Amazon and look up Don Aslet's Johnny mop. I throw mine in the washer with my cleaning towels because I clean homes. They also have a Safsty Foam for cleaning toilets and there's a holder you can purchase for them. There is also a video of how they recommend cleaning your toilet. it is absolutely the best and I get nothing for recommd them. They are just awesome products. The safety foam is also good for calcium around faucets.
