Around toilet hinges and other hard to reach spots are all perfect places to clean with your old toothbrush. You can even use an old toothbrush dipped in baking soda and water to clean dirt out of the grooves in your wedding rings. (Although, I might use a separate brush for jewelry and a second one for toilets. Just sayin’.)

    The best ever is the: SPIN brush! It works like a dream. And as a bonus, it’s the best for working out laundry stains. It won’t cause pills or stretch the fabric. It is so worth it I have one in each bathroom, the laundry room and the kitchen. Naturally, the laundry spin brush I keep just for laundry. It manages to get stains out that once I considered death to fabric. Once you try it on your favorite shirt you won’t use anything else.
