Nearly every home will have a toilet brush tucked away in the corner of their bathroom, these are essential to keeping a high level of cleanliness around toilet bowl, the rim and the u bend of the toilet. Modern day designs make for much more thorough cleaning than the earlier models, this is because flexibility has been added to the stem and brush heads. There are also thin circular shaped, and toilet rim brushes available. The toilet rim brushes are made at a specific angle so thorough cleaning can take place right under the rim. An added advantage to new designs is their longer handles, these prevent you from ever getting to close to the bowel when cleaning. Most designs come with a slip proof handle, achieved by the sturdy rubber grip. Toilet brushes are rarely sold without a holder. There are basic round shaped holders that brushes can just slot straight into and then there are the more mechanical designs. These automatically open when the brush is withdrawn and automatically closes when it’s replaced.
