Retired toothbrushes.

I use my old retired toothbrushes to clean around the little spaces in the faucets. I also retired my battery operated toothbrush and I will use that to clean out the tile grout in the bathroom and the edge of the tub. I put a piece of bright orange tape on the handle so I won't use it to clean my teeth.

  • I use mine for small cleaning like that too. We get the multi packs of 10/$1 and keep half back for our teeth and mark an X on each side of the handles of the others for cleaning to set them apart.
    I use them when I wash dishes for cups and corners of pans, in between the keys on my keyboard, and stuff like that. They're amazing!

    In sports bags to clean rugby, soccer and softball cleats.

  • I use mine for scrubbing at things like the sink, too. It also comes in handy if I get a stain on my floor, since it's the bumpy linoleum stuff and it's hard to get in those little spaces with other things.
