Use Old Electric Toothbrushes for Cleaning

Don't toss those old electric toothbrushes if you upgrade to a better model! Just like cleaning with an old manual toothbrush, your old electric toothbrushes can be used as well! I've used mine with fantastic results on grout and caulking stains, cleaning along the edge of base trim, hard to reach areas around faucets, and difficult hard water stains on sensitive surfaces you shouldn't use a pumice stone on. It cuts cleaning time in half!


Don't have an old one? There are a lot of affordable ones on the market now from brands like Crest and Colgate. It's well worth the investment when you see the results and time savings! Are you really brave? Try it out on stubborn toilet stains, you'll be glad you did!

This is a good idea. I've used my old electric toothbrush to clean tile grout. It works well and is far less work.
