The Dirtiest Job in the House

Your toilet brush has one of the dirtiest jobs in your home and cleans some of the most undesirable messes imaginable. Because of this, you want to ensure that what you’ve cleaned out of the toilet doesn’t linger on your toilet brush or it’s holder.

After you’ve cleaned your toilet, rest the brush between the bowl and the seat. Spray it generously with a disinfectant and let it sit for at least 10 minutes. Then, rinse the brush in the hottest water possible, spray it with disinfectant again and allow it to drip dry. You should never place a wet brush back into the brush holder as it can be a breeding ground for harmful bacteria.

You should also clean the brush holder by spraying it with disinfectant and letting it sit for 10 minutes. Rinse with hot water, dry with a rag and place disinfected toilet brush in the holder.

You should replace your toilet brush every 6 months.
