Your toilet is clean and sparkling – but what about the tools you used to get it that way? For safety and hygiene, it’s important to clean toilet brushes and any sponges and microfibre cloths that you may have used to clean the toilet. Restoring these tools to their best condition is, in fact, a relatively easy process.
It’s always important to take any necessary safety precautions. When dealing with a dirty toilet brush, sponges and microfibre cloths, it is highly advisable to wear gloves.
How To Clean A Toilet Brush & Sponges
- Fill a medium-sized bucket with hot water.
- Read the directions on the label of your bleach product and carefully add the appropriate amount of bleach to the water.
- Place the dirty toilet brush or cleaning sponges in the bucket and allow to soak for one to two hours. If any dirt still remains after this time, then leave the products to soak for as long as required.
- Once all dirt and residue has been removed, rinse the sponges or toilet brushes and set aside to dry.
Sometimes knowing how to keep a toilet brush clean isn’t enough. If the dirt and residue is proving difficult to remove, it might be a good idea to replace the toilet brush or sponge. They don’t last forever – it is recommended to change them twice a year.
