We use our toilet brush on a regular basis to keep our toilet bowls clean. After cleaning the toilet, we usually just put the toilet brush back in its place. You can only imagine the filth on them. You will want to regularly clean the toilet brush often using the following easy method.

Step 1 - Prepare the Solution

It is best to do this outside. Using the bucket, fill it with hot water and 1 cup of chlorine bleach. Add a few squirts of dish liquid to the bleach and water. The bleach will kill germs, and the dish liquid will remove any debris from it. You'll be ready to clean your toilet brush.

Step 2 - Soak the Toilet Brush

Dip the handle in the bucket and wipe it off with an old rag. This will clean germs from the handle. Dip the bristle end of the brush into the bucket. You will need to leave it sitting in the solution for about 15 minutes. After the soak, swish the brush around in the bucket to release any loosened debris.

Step 3 - Rinse and Dry

Remove the toilet brush from the bucket and rinse it with a water hose. Allow it to air dry. It is now thoroughly clean and bacteria free.
