Cleaning With Old Toothbrushes (this One Is Better)
Members Were Sparked
Do you save old used toothbrushes to clean? I have used them for years and go thru way too many (faster than the family used/replaced them) the brushes fray out when used to scrub baseboards or hard to reach grooves...solution???? Buy a cheap battery operated rotating tooth brush...you don't have to scrub as hard and the brushes get into those hard to reach areas without breaking down so fast. And the best part...it cuts down the work time in half!!!

You know the little areas that you seem to have a hard time cleaning because you can't get to it. Well, here is a solution. Keep the old toothbrush heads to you electric tooth brush. I use it to clean my rings, fine pieces of jewelry, around the sink handles and just little areas I can't seem to get really clean. A regular toothbrush works but, with the electric toothbrush is easier on the hands.
Spray it with vinegar. Mildew on grout is no match for that miracle household cleaning dynamo called vinegar. Just pour somewhite vinegar into a container, dip in an old toothbrush, and scrub away at the mildew. Or pour the vinegar into a spray bottle, squirt it on the mildew, and let it sit for ten minutes. Rinse with water and apply the old toothbrush if necessary. Bleach is effective in removing mildew from tile grout. (con't) 432
Fill a spray bottle with equal parts of household chloride bleach and water. Spray the grout, let it sit a few minutes, and then wipe with a clean white cotton cloth.
