Features To Consider Before You Buy

A toilet brush is one small part of what you need to keep your bathroom sparkling clean. Before you buy another brush, look at the following tips for picking the best brush for your cleaning needs.

Handle Length

Some toilet brushes have really short handles. This makes it nearly impossible to clean the toilet because you are constantly worrying about getting your hands too close to the dirty bowl! 

Longer handles can be hard to maneuver and require more force to get the toilet bowl clean. Be sure you are getting a brush that has an optimal length handle. This should be anywhere from 16-inches to 19-inches.

Storage

When you are finished using the toilet brush, you need a way to store it so it doesn’t get your floor all wet and dirty. Be sure you get a holder that suspends the brush in the air. This ensures the brush is not resting in dirty water where germs and bacteria can grow. 

Odor Control

Odor is produced from bacteria and other microorganisms that remain on your toilet brush bristles. They also require very little time to start growing. You can prevent bacterial growth by buying a brush with bristles that are treated with antimicrobial agents. This will prevent the odors from even starting!

Conclusion

Now you know exactly what you need to look for in a premium toilet brush for your bathroom. Be sure you consider the features mentioned above when looking for a new brush. At the end of the day, you want a brush that can be stored discreetly, remains clean and odor free, and looks sleek and modern when not in use.
