A cleaning enthusiast’s genius tip for keeping toilet brushes, and holders, sparkling has gained serious reviews.
The tip was shared by kitchen brand Swan, @swanbranduk, on their Instagram account.
Posting a snap of a loo brush trapped between the basin and the seat, they praised the hack.
Swan captioned the post: “I use the brush then clean the loo and spray with mould & mildew [remover].
“It stays there until it’s dry then goes back in the holder.
“No moisture to let the germs fester!"
The habit has taken off among fans of cleaning guru Mrs Hinch.
Sophie Hinchcliffe has 3 million Instagram followers, who are devoted to all things clean and organised.
The toilet brush trick prevents water, and other unsavoury bits, from rinsing off the bush and into the holder.
Brush holders often become filled with a disgusting mix of water, bacteria and toilet matter.
By allowing the brush to dry first, and giving it a spritz with mould spray, the holder and brush can remain hygienic for longer.
Swan’s post quotes a mum, who first shared her hack in the Facebook group “ Hinch Army Cleaning Tips ”.
It read: "The brush is required to get the skids off my 'comfort height' toilet (just means there’s more height to fall!)”
Online users on the post loved the idea.
One said: “Genius, thank you!”
Another added: “Oh, wow, top tip.”
Several shared their alternative treatments.
A woman wrote: “Exactly what I’ve done for years, but I spritz with disinfectant mixed with Milton liquid, not mould and mildew.”
Another said: “I’ve done this for ages, however I sprinkle with bicarbonate of soda and spray with white vinegar.”
We’ll be buying a new brush, and giving this a shot, once lockdown is over.
