Cleaning properly means getting into all of those corners and crevices where dirt and bacteria can hide. To do this more efficiently, keep an old toothbrush with your bathroom cleaning supplies. This will help you get into hard to reach areas such as behind the faucet. Also great for those hard to reach places is an angled dish brush. This will easily assist you in cleaning bathroom tiles behind the toilet and other tight places.
all of these are helpful . i read a lot of them
I've been using a toothbrush for those tiny, hard to reach places for years. Also have the brush for scrubbing dishes that have dried foods on them. Both brushes can be used for both places, just have a different set for bath and kitchen!!
Toothbrushes are wonderful for cleaning! Please add that you should be using a different toothbrush for your toilet, one for your sink, and another one for your shower! We wouldn't want to intermix those germs!
Useing an electic toothbrush does it quickly. Buy several at the "$ Store"
Cleaning with a toothbrush is great! I started using toothbrushes for getting the areas around sink fixtures in the bathroom and kitchen years ago. Yes, it is wise to use different toothbrushes. No, we don't want to mix those germs! It just makes good sense.
A tile brush also called a grout brush works better, I has longer bristles and a longer head that is shaped so the bristles are angled outward. After my first experience using one I got 3 more to use around the house to get into those hard to reach spots.
Saw a "guru" on TV, forget his name, but he suggested Denture brushes. (a) they're slightly larger and stiffer, and (b) they have a pointed brush-let on the flip side. Very useful
The $64,000 dollar question is WHY are bathroom sinks designed with a hard to reach place behind the faucet?
If bathroom fixtures were designed more intelligently, no one would NEED to keep old toothbrushes to clean them with, or worry about cross-contamination from. You could clean with a washcloth, then throw then in the washer on the hot cycle with chlorine bleach.
