Haha, ok, thanks for all of your responses.
I think a lot of you are under the impression that I’m going to tell you some crazy statistics about how unsanitary they are or something, but I’m not.
The reason I asked is because over a romantic cup of coffee at Starbucks the other night, Josh and I were having a romantic conversation about toilet brushes.
When we were moving, I threw away our nasty $1 Ikea toilet brush and up until 2 days ago, we had not replaced it. About a week ago, I was saying how we needed to buy one so that I could clean our toilet. Josh, being the great husband he is, got in there with a sponge and his BARE hands and cleaned the toilet bowl (so sweet but nasty, right?). So, although completely unsanitary, this is when a toilet brush comes in handy, correct?
So, over coffee we got into this banter, Josh saying that toilet brushes are completely unnecessary and that doing it with your hands is easier and it does a better job. I told him that the brush gets up in the hard to reach places (inside rim of bowl) and down in the areas that are covered with toilet water and that doing it with your hands is sick and that everyone in America owns a toilet bowl brush. Haha, so, we went on and on and I told him I was going to blog about it and affirm that pretty much everyone owns one and I’m not crazy to think that we need one.
All that to say, Josh is still standing his ground and I’m still standing mine and we have a new toilet brush in our bathroom. But thank you for your interaction. You played a part in an extremely important marital discussion and for that, I am extremely thankful to you all.
To those of you who don’t own a toilet brush, do you clean your toilet Josh-style?
