Facebook group users shared their latest cleaning discovery at a bargain price.
According to Ms. Hinch’s fans, using bleach is an effective way to fix a dirty brush problem.
One user shared her experience of letting bleach sit “in the pan overnight” while the brush sits in the solution — and vowed it’s “so quick and easy.”
“I pour bleach down the toilet and then I get the toilet brush and brush the toilet with the bleach water. It cleans the toilet and brush so easily,” added Emma Hashad.
One fan stressed the importance of “always” using bleach when cleaning toilet brushes.
Daniela Delfina said: “You should always use bleach for the job. You can put bleach in the toilet and let the brush soak in there.”
“Yes, I bleach the toilet and also leave the brush in the bleach for a while,” agreed Tracy G Thorp.
Alternatively, another user shared her tips for optimizing cleaning potential as she uses a “mop bucket” to ensure “no stinky germs are left behind”.
Emma Brookes explained, “I use a mop bucket, fill it with bleach and put the whole thing in the bucket too, not just the brush.”
Toilet brushes are extremely effective for cleaning your toilet bowl, but it’s important to keep them clean or bacteria can spread.
Using bleach is therefore an effective way to clean brushes as it is a powerful disinfectant that kills all bacteria.
Bleach can be bought from major supermarket retailer Asda for just 38p.
Alternatively, you can use Zoflora to clean your toilet brush – as suggested by another Mrs Hinch fan.
“I leave Zoflora in and it smells lovely when I use it,” said Anna Mcdonagh.
Danielle White agreed: “I soak mine in Zoflora to disinfect them and keep them smelling fresh.
