I hate cleaning my shower, it takes alot of elbow grease.

I saw these awesome scrub brushes that attach to a cordless drill, I think it's a great idea, but I didn't want to pay $16 for one brush. So I've made my own.

This is what you'll need:


  1. Get your toilet brush, cut the handle off about 1 -2 inches from the brush head.
  2. Grab your drill, open the chuck, insert the handle of the toilet brush, then tighten.
  3. Ad

  4. Get your favorite cleaner, note if you're using a wet cleaner it's a good idea to wear some safety glasses, as the spinning brush will spit cleaner at you.
  5. Apply your cleaner, and start in with your new power scrubby brush!
  6. Keep the brush moving so you don't burn into your shower surround, use common sense, use just enough pressure on the drill to remove the dirt and grime.
  7. Keep your drill dry, don't put it under water, or spray cleaner on it.
  8. Remove the brush from the drill to rinse it off.

Wah lah you have a clean shower! And it was almost fun.

I definitely have to try this. I have trouble scrubbing things, but this should really help.

Maybe you could just tape a clear plastic bag over the back of the drill temporarily to protect it from cleaner splashes. :-)

Way too much work involvement! But if it works great for you... that's the main thing.
