I once knew a person who would put her toilet brush and holder in the dishwasher to clean it.
Granted, the dishwasher was apparently always empty at the time but I DO remember vomitting in my mouth a little when she told me.
Though, what DO people do with their toilet brushes? I find the thought of them so vile. I like to just ignore the fact that they would be teeming with all sorts of foul bacteria. One of my friends keeps bleach in the bottom of the toilet brush holder so that it lives in bleach.
Oh, i have a fun toilet brush story! Ours lives on a little ledge on the dividing wall between the bathroom/laundry to stop DS getting at it. It's pretty high up and about 50% of the time when i try to get it down, it falls and hits me in the face this is why cleaning the toilet is DP's job
We used to fill the holder with bleach, but now can't because of where its kept. So I fill the holder with bleach once a week or so and let the whole thing soak in the laundry sink for a while.
And I have another question re. toilet brushes- how do other people store them to stop little hands getting at them? Our 'keep it 6'5 off the ground' method clearly isn't working

Uh-Huh...yep. And when I told her that I was bit grossed out by it, she had NO idea why it'd be a problem.
But it's good to know that I'm not the only one who thinks that poo, pee and dishes should never unite!
I pour bleach in the toilet and then use the brush to scrub out the bottom of the bowl and up around all the edges. So in theory its being "disinfected" at the same time.
My husband used to use it to clean "skid marks" but as soon as I found out, that was the end of that.
