1. Use a disinfectant spray.

  • After you've done cleaning the toilet, use a disinfectant spray and a disinfectant wipe to clean the toilet brush.

  • Flush the toilet after cleaning and rinse the toilet brush with water. Hold the brush handle with the brush head directly over the toilet bowl.

  • Spray the brush head well with a disinfectant spray or 3 percent hydrogen peroxide, spinning it to coat all sides.

  • Use a disinfectant wipe to clean the handle. Clean the holder inside and out with a second wipe. For at least 10 minutes, the surfaces should be damp.

  • To dry, position the toilet brush handle between the toilet bowl rim and the lowered toilet seat.

2. Disinfect in the bleach soaking solution

  • Bring one gallon of water to a boil on the stovetop or in the microwave.

  • With caution, carefully pour the hot water into a plastic cleaning pail. The bucket should carry enough water to cover the holder, the toilet brush head, and most of the toilet brush handle.

  • Fill the bucket with water and place it in a big sink, bathtub, or shower stall. This will protect the surrounding surroundings if the bleach solution spills out of the bucket.

  • Add one cup of liquid chlorine bleach while wearing rubber gloves and eye protection.

  • To minimize splashing, apply the holder and toilet brush slowly.

  • Allow at least one hour for the things to soak.

  • Remove the toilet brush and holder while wearing rubber gloves and rinse them under hot water for at least 30 seconds to flush away the bleach solution.

  • Before storage, dry the brush and holder with a microfiber cloth or let them air dry.

3. Using an all-purpose cleaner

If you don't want to use chlorine bleach, you may clean the toilet brush and holder using an all-purpose cleaner and a hot water solution. While this procedure reduces the number of germs on the things, it does not disinfect them by eliminating all of the bacteria.

  • Fill a bucket or big sink halfway with boiling water and add the suggested quantity of all-purpose cleaning or dishwashing liquid on the product label.

  • Soak the toilet brush and holder in water.

  • Allow at least two hours for them to soak.

  • Remove the objects while wearing rubber gloves and rinse each one for at least 30 seconds under running hot water.

  • Using a microfiber towel, dry the toilet brush and holder.

  • Allow the brush to dry thoroughly before placing it in the holder.
