While it might not be the most luxurious purchase you've made lately, the best toilet brushescan be functional and attractive. At first glance, most toilet brushes will look pretty similar, but before you add anything to your cart, be sure to consider the materials, the features, and the caddy design.
Since toilet brushes regularly come into contact with moisture and cleaning solutions, you'll want to choose a material that can stand up to both. Durable plastic is usually the material of choice here — for both the handle and the bristles — but some brands have also begun to utilize silicone bristles because they're scratch-free, easier to clean, and attract less bacteria than plastic. And if any part of the brush is metal, be sure it's a metal that naturally resists rust and corrosion (like stainless steel). Regardless of your preferred materials, you should also make sure that the brush is comfortable to hold and well-suited for cleaning hard-to-reach areas.
Finally, almost all brushes come with their own caddies, which means that the caddy's design is almost as important as the brush's. Make sure that it's sturdy, compact, capable of catching drips, and allows the brush to dry. You'll also want to make sure that it's at least moderately attractive if it'll be sitting in a corner of your bathroom all the time.
With all of that in mind, here are the five best options for a wide selection of toilet-cleaning needs.
