Sanitizing System For Toilet-Cleaning Implements
We pay a lot of attention to keeping our bathrooms clean, so why would we neglect the tools that get the job done. Toilet brushes and plungers do dirty jobs – so keeping them clean should be a priority. Like toilets, the toilet brush and plunger can be carriers for germs. The Journal of Applied Microbiology printed a study by J. Baker 12/25/01, stating that in 4 out of 6 households tested, salmonella was found under the rims of the toilet bowl. Even though you regularly use your toilet brush to scrub those germs, without regular cleaning and sanitizing of the bristles, your brush can spread nasty germs each time you use it (yikes)!
Good Housekeeping tells us that not only do we need to take steps to clean our tools; but how often do we think about the brush or plunger holder we store our tools in when we are done? In How to Clean a Toilet Brush and Plunger After Use (Grove Collaborative 12/13/21) it states that after use we should:
- Wash the brush
- Spray the brush with a disinfectant
- Soak for 30 minutes
All before storing it in a brush holder which they state should also be cleaned at least every other use and also allowed to thoroughly dry before storing your tools. Do you have all that time? Or are you like the rest of us and just drop the tool in the holder and forget about it until the next cleaning?
There are many options for storing our tools: from the basic to the novelty, but few offer ways to keep our tools clean and sanitized, or to keep those holders from becoming swampy, smelly, germ factories.
The Sanitizing System For Toilet-Cleaning Implements provides us with the answer to sanitizing our tools and storage holders. The Sanitizing System For Toilet-Cleaning Implements allows us to clean, sanitize, and store our toilet brush or plunger safely and with the knowledge that the next time we need it, the toilet brush or plunger will be clean and ready for use.

The outbreak of COVID-19 in addition to rising health awareness and risk of critical diseases has augmented the need for clean and hygienic environments. The high importance of cleaning and disinfection to limit the spread of diseases and micro-organisms among different surfaces has supported the demand for varied cleaning equipment (GMI.com). The Sanitizing System For Toilet-Cleaning Implements provides the means to help us keep our homes clean and safe.
The Sanitizing System For Toilet-Cleaning Implements consists of a container, liner, lid and disinfecting liquid. The disinfecting liquid is stored in the liner, inside the container, and the lid hides away the toilet brush or plunger. This allows the toilet brush or plunger to rest submerged in the disinfecting liquid. For plunger holders a convex insert at the bottom of the liner would allow the disinfecting liquid to be pushed into the underside of the plunger.
A drain and plug located at the bottom of the liner allows for easy emptying of the disinfecting liquid when needed. The container and lid may be solid or contain a slot to allow for easy entry and removal of the tool. This allows for easy containment of those drips and splashes of dirty toilet water growing germs, causing odors and drying at the bottom of your holder. The basic container can be adapted to any design to appeal to any consumer while maintaining the Sanitizing System For Toilet-Cleaning Implements effectiveness.
