Professional cleaner: Why you should ALWAYS hang your toilet brush over the bowl after using it
- A professional cleaner has shed light on how to keep your toilet brush clean
- After you finish using it try not to place it directly back inside the container
- Instead hang it into the toilet bowl and use the lid to keep it stabilised there
- Then, only once it is dry, you can place it back into the container by the bowl
A professional cleaner has explained why you should always hang your toilet brush over the bowl after cleaning with it, as it will prevent dirty water from building up in the container.
The woman, who is based in the UK, shared her helpful tip on Facebook, pointing out that it was a ‘game-changer’ for those looking for a cleaner way to leave their brushes.
‘In my experience there’s nothing worse that cleaning out the filthy water that collects at the bottom of the toilet brush holder after you’ve cleaned the bowl,’ she said, attaching two photos to her post.
Instead of hastily pushing the brush into its plastic container immediately upon finishing the job, instead balance it over the rim of the toilet (pictured)
Once the brush is in place simply lower the seat to hold it in place (pictured)
‘But I learnt a clever trick that has saved me that horrible job years ago and I thought I’d pass it on.’

Then simply lower the seat to hold it in place.
‘What happens is all the excess water drains off and you’re left with a (mostly) clean brush. Then when it’s dry, just place it back in the holder ready for next time,’ she said.
Reiterating that you’ll ‘never look back’ the anonymous cleaner confirmed that you would never have to splash water to and from the toilet brush holder again

It will also help prevent a build up of mould on the brush.
Plenty of people were surprised they hadn’t heard of the ‘life hack’ sooner but were keen to give it a try.
‘I hate that build up of water in the container… it probably takes awhile to dry but I think it’s probably worth it,’ one woman said.
‘I am 60 and only found this out today. This will change my life,’ said another.
