Mum reveals how she transformed her filthy stainless steel toilet brush holder
Rather than throwing away her filthy toilet brush holder, a mum has made it look brand new again with a budget-friendly supermarket buy.
Amanda, from Adelaide, South Australia, shared before and after images to the Mums Who Clean Facebook group after using Bar Keepers Friend to transform the holder.
‘Another Bar Keepers Friend success story. Toilet Brush holder from the boy’s bathroom. Was about to throw the disgusting thing out, it lives another day,’ she captioned the social media post.
The holder originally looked grubby and was spotted with dark marks, but the cleaning product worked wonders at removing the filth with ease.
