Disposable Toilet Brush
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

Here it is....this toilet brush comes with four biodegradable brushes that are chemically treated to clean and deodorize your toilet in one easy step. And unlike your traditional brush, this one gets flushed away with the dirty water...removing the bacteria-infested filth from your home.

You take care of the kids, the shopping, and the last thing you want to worry about is that dirty, dripping, toilet brush...infested with bacteria...getting into the wrong hands.

Terri Rearick Infection Prevention and Control Expert "Bacteria can definitely stay on a traditional toilet brush. And the science has looked at how quickly some of these bacteria migrate and multiply."

Eyewitness News asked Len Nazareth of East Side Cleaning Service to test the "Scrub-n-Flush" against his 42-years of experience in the business.

Len Nazareth East Side Cleaning Service "I've never seen it before and like I said, we've been in the business and tried all kinds of products and I've never seen this one before."

But Nazareth is more than willing to give it a whirl.

Len "It seems like it's pretty simple where you just take these cartridges out - I guess all self-contained - and it looks like just peel this back...there we go, simple as that."

This pro takes it for a spin around the bowl and is impressed with how easily it's shape allows him to clean under the rim. And as easily as it went on...this brush is gone. (Flushes it down the toilet)

Len "As far as household use, keeping the germs out of the home and away from the children, it's great."

The "Scrub-n-Flush" is about 6-dollars for the handle and initial set of four brushes. The refills cost about 40 cents and you can buy them at some of the larger retail stores.

Len's only criticism is that the brush isn't very large and not strong enough to clean really tough stains. If your bowl is really dirty, this expert would recommend cleaning it first and using the "Scrub-n-Flush" to maintain it. So the "Scrub-n-Flush" gets an eight out of 12.
