The humble toilet brush plays a practically pivotal role in maintaining the cleanliness of a toilet. Therefore it is one of the most important areas of the bathroom to clean. Toilet brushes should be replaced as often as required to ensure that wear and tear does not diminish their effectiveness. However, a well maintained brush will provide longevity. The great thing is compared to many other household chores, this one is rather simple and very fast, according to Mrs Hinch fans. This means there is really no excuse not to do it.
Taking to the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips Facebook page, Helen Ince asked: “How do people clean their toilet brushes?
“I’m really thinking of times that people have a rather ‘messy dump’ and use the brush to quickly get rid of any mess following the flush.”
There are a vast range of different toilet brushes on the market, including ones with bristles as well as silicone ones with a water reservoir. While no toilet brush may seem hygienic, there are ways to keep them fresh.
The most common response from cleaning enthusiasts was to use bleach, no matter what brand, as even the “cheap” ones “work great”.

Angela Payne said: “I put mine down the loo and pour bleach all over it, I use a cheap one and that works great, and leave it for a few hours.”
Sarah Lomas wrote: “If the toilet brush is really dirty, I always use bleach. It’s my holy grail as it works effectively when the brush is clogged and stained. Plus, I have two young children so I need a fast and no fuss way to clean the brush.”
Hilary Ross commented: “I’ll clean my toilet before going to bed, flush, put two cups of bleach in the bowl, then leave the brush soaking overnight. Wash the handle with disinfectant in the morning. Job done.”
Paula Clarke replied: “When the brush has been in use, I leave it in the toilet with bleach in the water for a couple of hours. Then flush the toilet holding brush in water. Perfectly clean.”
As bristle toilet brushes can quickly harbour bacteria, many Mrs Hinch fans suggested switching them out for a silicone version.
Sharon Green said: “I bought a black silicon brush and just rinse it under the flush water, it’s really easy to keep clean.”
Janet Oakes wrote: “Agreed. Silicone brushes tend to rinse clean in the flush water and then I do a soak in disinfectant within the toilet brush holder once a week. Would never go back to bristles brushes.”
Stanley Hurcombe added: “Like others a silicone brush is brilliant and so easy to clean with a clean flush from the toilet after you have cleaned up, works well for me.”
