Aha! Hack: 3 Clever (and Attractive!) Ways to Store the Toilet Brush

Toilet Brush in Pitcher by Matthew Williams

It never occurred to me that there was an alternative to buying the plastic toilet brush and holder set. But there is—and it’s rather ingenious.

Instead of buying a flimsy set, consider sourcing the two pieces separately. Start with a Iris Hantverk toilet brush; then go shopping (either in your home or at a home goods store) for an inexpensive pitcher, flower pot, or tall, narrow bucket. Put the two together and you have a combo that’s far more appealing than any plastic set you can buy at a big-box store.

Psst…want a shortcut? German brand Redecker, another company known for its cleaning brushes, makes an actual toilet brush and pitcher set.
