I use a toilet brush that has a holder that will hold water. I put a small amount of concentrated bathroom cleaning solution in it and fill it with "hot" water. The brush gets sterilized with the hot water and then I have solution in the holder so that I can give my toilet a quick swish every day. Saves time in the long run, because there is no hard scrubbing to be done when you brush the toilet daily.

Good idea! Would just like to add that instead of squishing loads of cleaner all around the pan, it is just as effective to squirt it directly onto the brush - and you won't use half as much.
OK in theory but in practice placing the brush in boiling water will not sterilise it - if boiling was a reliable method of sterilisation hospitals would still be doing it for their surgical instruments! Keeping anything in water, even with bathroom cleaner added, is a good environment for bacterial growth which needs moisture. A much better method is to let your brush dry out completely between uses. Remember this is a toilet brush we are talking about - there is no earthly reason why anyone would need to sterilise their toilet brush. The over use of chemicals in a futile attempt to unnecessarily 'sterilise' things like toilets and toilet brushes is damaging waterways. Save your money and save the environment!
