      A good basic, no frills toilet brush

      When I was at University, the house I rented with some of my friends was missing a few of the basics when we moved in, including a toilet brush! We therefore went to Asda to stock up on some of the things we needed. We purchased this Asda Smart Price toilet brush and holder, as it was the cheapest available and we didn't want to waste much money on the essentials. I can't remember the exact price we paid for it as we bought it over 3 years ago, but the same product is currently for sale in Asda for £0.53, so I imagine we paid a similar price or perhaps even slightly cheaper.

      The toilet brush itself and the holder are both made from glossy white plastic. The set came with no fancy packaging, just a simple label with the barcode and the product name. The bristles of the brush are also white in colour and sit neatly inside the holder, with the brush handle sitting upwards, in the same design as most toilet brushes. The set is quite compact in size and sat neatly in the corner of our bathroom. There are little studs on the base which helped make sure the base stayed where we placed it and didn't slip and slide over the floor.

      The brush is easy to use, we used to simply squirt some bleach down the toilet and then give it a scrub with the brush. The handle of the brush is easy to grip and long enough to enable you to reach all the little corners of the toilet that are hidden out of sight. The bristles are strong enough to allow you to give the toilet a good thorough scrub. The brush is easily cleaned also, we used to clean this regularly in bleach.

      We kept this toilet brush in our house for the whole 2 years that we lived there, and in that time it was used and cleaned regularly and kept it's nice white colour. In hindsight we probably should have replaced it for hygiene purposes, but when you are a student things like that aren't always your priority I suppose! This sturdy little toilet brush passed the test of time and served us well.

      I would definitely recommend this toilet brush to anyone who wants something basic. It isn't fancy or decorative in any way, and probably isn't something you'd want in a nicely decorated bathroom, but would do the job for a basic bathroom or a small toilet. It is really well priced and is ideal for students. 5* rating from me. Thanks for your reads and rates and I hope this review has been helpful.

      Disadvantages

      Thanks for Reading :)

      All bathrooms need a toilet brush, so mine is no exception. I was looking for a basic toilet brush that does its job, and one that was low priced. As I make frequent visits to my local Asda supermarket, it was just easier to purchase any essentials from here. The price is the main reason for buying the toilet brush from Asda, being priced at only 60p meant this was going straight into my shopping trolley!

      {DESIGN}

      The brush itself came with no packaging, which is great as it is always a bit of a hassle throwing away boxes out into the outside bin. It just had a simple Asda label and bar code on the plastic holder.
      Appearance wise the brush and the holder are both white in colour and are moulded into shape with plastic glossy material. There are four studs under the base to ensure that the brush holder stays sturdy which is great as it has never toppled over or looked tilted or unsteady.
      It has a Long handle with white strong bristles on the end, and is a very handy small compact size meaning it fits easily into my small bathroom and can be easily hidden behind the toilet, as you don't necessary what a toilet brush to be visible.

      {PUT TO THE TEST}

      I tend use it with bleach and sometimes fairly liquid to clean the inside of the toilet bowl and I have found that it cleans it quite well, with the long white bristles reaching and cleaning all the hidden dirt away. It basically does what most toilet brushes do, but with a great price, as the last thing we want to do is have to pay extra for something unless we really have too, and this is definitely something that we don't need to empty our purses for.

      It is easy to clean the brush, just give it a rinse and a scrub with bleach or some fairy liquid a few times a week (depending on how often it is used) and it back to its clean looking self. I thought that due to the white colour that it would look old and lose its colour fairly quickly, but I was wrong and it has lasted me for quite a while, and stayed looking nice and white despite its frequent use.
      The toilet brush has never broken one me while using it, but I still replace my toilet brush (with the same Asda toilet brush) after 5 months or so just for hygiene reasons, however due to the cheap price this is quite affordable.
      The solid handle allowed for a good grip when scrubbing the toilet, which is great as the last thing you need is a toilet brush that falls into the dirty water in the toilet bowl.

      {VERDICT}

      Overall I would definitely recommend this toilet brush, as it does what all toilet brushes should do which is to clean toilets thoroughly. The price is fantastic, especially for a quality long lasting product like this, and in my opinion all toilets should be accompanied by this toilet brush!!

        Disadvantages

        For 53p? Amazing!

        My dad recently moved house and as he is disabled it was my job to get his new house cleaned and decorated ready for the movers to get everything in place. The previous tenant had left it in an OK condition but it had not been lived in for some months and needed a good clean before being decorated.

        The loo was full of limescale - I bought bleach and tablets for it, but I also wanted a disposable toilet brush. My dad already had a loo brush but I knew that I'd be getting the loo brush dirty so I wanted to buy one as cheap as possible so I could get the loo sparkling with a good scrub.

        I had a look in Home Bargains but the cheapest one they had there was £2.99. I know they sell them for 98p in IKEA but I wasn't near one so on the off chance and before I descended onto the Pound Shop I went to Asda and was amazed to find the Asda Smartprice Toilet Brush Set for an impressive and unbeatable 53p. It's nothing special to look at but for 53p it's more than acceptable. It comprises a smallish brush and stand in plain white plastic, wrapped in clear plastic with the Asda Smartprice logo and description on a sticker on the front.

        It looks pretty cheap out of the wrapper, but hey, it's a loo brush, no-one expects beauty. It's neat looking and to be fair, does look more than 53p worth of loo brush! In terms of use, the plastic brush gives a good hard scrub which was what I needed to get the loo clean and sparkling. So I was happy with that. Overall, the brush looks OK, is ridiculously cheap, and cleans well, so you really can't complain. I did end up throwing it away because it got quite grubby but I wouldn't imagine everyone's loos are quite as dirty as the one I was tackling! I can imagine these Asda Smartprice Toilet Brush Sets being very popular with bed and breakfasts or student houses - and why not, at the price they are certainly replacable and it doesn't matter when they get dirty - no needing to bleach them clean or worry about replacing them, it's 53p!

        Overall I recommend the Asda Smartprice Toilet Brush Set more than I thought I would. I really cannot fault it and I'm still even now impressed by the low cost. It just goes to show that the Pound Shops are not always the cheapest and that yet again Smart price and any supermarket budget type homeware can be extremely useful.

        A cheap toilet brush that cleans great.

        Smart price toilet brush


        Well what can I say? I like a bargain just as much as the next guy and this definitely comes into the bargain category. One of the most important things to me is cleanliness, in particular the kitchen and toilet. There is something so satisfying about seeing a shiny, bright clean toilet. Well keeping a clean and tidy house with pets and kids can be somewhat of a challenge and doing it on a budget makes the task even more of a trial.



        I have never been a fan of toilet brushes, I think they can easily become a bacteria fun house, but they do make cleaning the toilet somewhat easier if you simply have to squirt a little bleach in and give it a swirl every day and also when needed. However I do give it a proper scrub on a twice weekly basis. However these are so reasonably priced at 53p each that they can cheaply and easily be replaced regularly, to help with the hygienic side of things, without breaking the bank.



        Well they are cheap, so you can't expect anything elaborate, but they do what they are designed to do, and to be fair what more can anyone ask for? The brush handle is around a foot long and made of a white plastic quite sufficient to reach down into the toilet and even reach around the pipes. The brush has very firm bristles which effectively but gently scrub away any germs or dirt, it has the regular domed design with which I have absolutely no complaints about, the brush cleans well and keeps my toilet fresh, it adequately sweeps its bristles under the rim to clean the areas which are unseen. The brush holder is a simple plastic bowl design which again does its job. The brush fits in fine and stands vertically, the entire thing is very light and compact and fits nicely and discretely in the corner of the toilet or behind the pan without being to conspicuous.


        The product isn't very attractive but being honest what toilet brush looks attractive.
        The reason I like these so much is the price and the ability to be able to cost effectively replace these on a regular basis. I do hate to keep them for much more than a month even with regularly rinsing them and soaking them in bleach, but this is a personal preference. I just have an issue with the germs than can easily collect in the brush and the stale water which can quickly collect in the bowl, even with regular rinsing and bleaching.


        I would highly recommend this as it does what it claims to do both effectively and efficiently at a price that everybody can afford.

        a 53p bargain!

        ~Toilet Brush~

        This toilet brush set is part of the Smart Price range offered by Asda. It is a two piece set which includes a brush and holder and is only available in white.

        This toilet brush set is exclusive to Asda and is currently priced at 53p. Asda so offer other toilet brush sets starting from £2.00.

        ~My Thoughts~

        When it comes to cleaning my home, the toilet is normally at the top of my chores list. It isn't a job I particularly look forward to doing to be honest but I absolutely hate a dirty toilet and would be mortified at having unexpected guests use an unclean toilet. I spent quite a bit of money on cistern blocks and bleach/toilet cleaner but also rely on a toilet brush to help keep my toilet in a hygenic condition.

        I'm not sure how often others replace their toilet brushes but I usually replace mine once a month or sometimes more often. This isn't because the toilet brushes fall apart or anything. It is simply down to personal choice. For this reason, I opt to buy a super cheap toilet brush set and switch between the Tesco Value set and this Smart Price set. It is mega cheap and perfect for those who are short of pennies or starting out in their first home.

        This toilet brush set doesn't look fancy or stylish. It is a very basic white colour. Our toilet brush set is hidden down the side of our toilet so looks aren't important in this instance. The base of the set is made from moulded plastic which sits neatly on my bathroom floor. The plastic isn't particularly thick but it does seem to be quite sturdy. The toilet brush itself is around 30cm in length and made from durable plastic which doesn't feel like it will snap or crack with very little force.

        The brush is the perfect length to use in the average loo. There is an arrangement of wide spread bristles at the end of the brush which are quite firm and secure. This toilet brush is very easy to use. I normally pour some toilet cleaner around the toilet bowl and leave it for a short while before flushing. Whilst flushing, I run the brush around the inside of the bowl ensuring I get under the rim and down the u-bend. My toilet always comes up clean and fresh thanks to the combination of toilet cleaner and a quick scrub with the toilet brush. Any water marks, minor limescale and other marks are removed and I am pleased with how clean my toilet is after using this brush.

        When not in use, the brush sides upright in the base holder without toppling over. As with any toilet brush set, a small amount of dirty water will gather in the base holder. I normally give it a rinse out with some anti-bacterial cleaner and also clean the brush too. I find that this set is easy to maintain and keep fresh but I still like to replace it often for my own piece of mind.

        ~Conclusion~

        For 53p I can highly recommend this little toilet brush set. It makes cleaning my toilet a quick and stress-free experience. It is the right length to fully clean the toilet without me needing to submerge my arm right into the toilet bowl. If you want something fancy for a stylish bathroom then you may wish to look elsewhere but I feel that this toilet brush set wouldn't look out of place in most bathrooms as it has such a simple design.

        Thanks for reading :)

          4 stars

          I am not really a fan of toilet brushes as I worry about the lack of hygiene with it but we have one anyway to help when cleaning the toilet. We bought this one from Asda as it was only cheap. I don't tend to keep a toilet brush very long so don't see any point in spending lots of money on one.

          It is white so will go in any bathroom although I think being plain white makes it quite cheap looking but then what do you expect?! And I wouldn't really want a fancy looking one anyway as it will only draw attention to it.

          It slots into the base by putting it directly in and it remains upright. It is only light but it's never fallen over. It is made completely with plastic so cleaning it is easy; I tend to give it a good clean using bleach after I have used it and this seems to make it remain nice and clean. The handle isn't too long either so you get a good amount of control when moving it around.

          The brush itself is not too thick which makes it really useful for getting around the slight bend at the bottom of the toilet. I don't think the bristles reach all areas but it does do a very good job and saves me having to use gloves and scrub away with my hands down the bowl for any longer than I have to. It does well at keeping limescale at bay, we have a really big problem with limescale here, it builds up very quickly but I find if I use this once a week to give the toilet a good scrub then it doesn't build up too much.

          I would recommend you keep it away from children's reach so they aren't tempted to investigate it as I hate to think about the bacteria hiding in these but like I say you can give it a good clean as it's made with plastic.

          A nice cheap toilet brush set.

          After my long owned, but rarely used toilet brush suddenly fell to bits a while ago, i replaced with the cheapest brush i could find, you don't need to spend too much on something that effectively scrapes s**t away!

          As with most of my "essentials", i tend to buy everything on my weekly shop from my local Asda, with them having a reasonably good bathroom section to choose from.

          Within the section i noticed that there were a few "smartprice" products to choose from, with this being Asda's budget range, which vary from absolutely rubbish, to really rather good (obviously i was hoping the later statement in regards to this product!).

          The toilet brush is rather non descript when you first see it, though this is good to me, as i do want people to use it if required, but i wanted something that would melt away and not be on display when in the toilet room, so the fact that this is a bog standard white colour was really rather perfect!

          Within the set you get a really good and substantial brush, with heavy duty bristles and a solid feeling handle (always a must we used to have one with a screw on head, and found that it kept dropping off into the toilet bowl whilst being used!), with the brush holder being suitable for use, but a quite flexible feeling bowl, though saying that we have had a few of these (replced for hygiene reasons and not due to them being broken!), and have never had one break on us.

          Use wise this has been a good product to have, with the bristles being long enough on the brush to get to the under side of the toilet rim to clean all the nasty limescale away, with it still looking clean (after a good wash!) after a fair bit of use.

          Price wise this is available for around the 60p mark, which for a product that i can now afford to replace every couple of months is very good value, and much more hygienic than soaking in bleach!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A fantastic toilet brush from Asda that does the job very well.

          A toilet brush really is one of those essential items that every household probably owns and mine is no exception. In the past I've had toilet brushes from Tesco, Ikea and other places too and basically they all have the same purpose. My last brush was always kept sanitary as I clean them after every use and I regularly soak the brush in bleach just to ensure that there are no germs building up on the toilet brush. I can't stand a toilet brush that is sitting in dirty water and nothing makes me feel more disgusted in a bathroom. A few months ago my brush was looking a bit bedraggled and so I picked up a new one on my monthly top up shop to Asda. I paid just 53p for this which is a fantastic bargain in my opinion and the white blends in to my blue & white themed bathroom perfectly.

          There are always a variety of toilet brush sets on offer but why pay more unless you need a specific colour to keep with a bathroom theme. I wanted something that was going to work and I think my previous set was a bargain one too that cost a similar amount to this one. This product literally just comes as it is on the shelf in Asda and it had a label on it which was simple to peel off and didn't even leave any sticky residue behind. I'm glad that there isn't any unnecessary packaging with this as that just annoys me with products. The brush and holder is also produced with cost in mind from a white plastic. The plastic is moulded in certain places to allow the holder to sit on the side in my bathroom with no crookedness or tilting and there is a groove in the top to allow the toilet brush to sit in there comfortably without falling out at all or hanging over the edges. The groove can collect any water if there is any excess but I always be sure to rinse my brush and shake it thoroughly before I put it back. I then clean the holder regularly as it gathers dust quickly in my bathroom. The brush itself has standard bristles and there are lots of them too. The bristles are strong and they work very well at removing any dirt or marks from the toilet bowl.

          I normally use this toilet brush on a daily basis as I like to ensure that my bathroom and toilet are as clean as possible. The bristles have not bent out of shape and I haven't noticed any falling out either which is a big plus point. Because this is made from plastic it is simple to clean and if I have just done my daily clean of the toilet bowl I tend to put a little bleach or toilet cleaner on it and then when I flush the chain I make sure that the liquid is all cleaned off and the brush is banged dry before I put it back. I always give this a clean about once a week or so properly just to ensure that it is kept clean and hygienic.

          This brush works very well and the holder does too. I don't have any complaints about this product at all and find it simple to use, effective and easy to keep clean too. The brush allows me to clean all the difficult to reach areas even underneath the rim of the toilet bowl and therefore I am rating this 5/5. The price is not prohibitive at all and if you are a germ phobic like me you can most likely afford to replace this whenever you need to.

            It does its job, end of story

            I think this has to be the most bizarre review I have done, as I am not sure how much you can write about a toilet brush to be honest.

            Every house has one and I am sure that a lot of people will not even remember where they got theirs from. I can tell you where I got mine from.......Asda. A toilet brush has one of the worst job going, but as much as I may feel sorry for the poor utensil, I am not going to spend lots of my hard earned cash on such a implement. I could spend £10 on a toilet brush that does exactly the same thing as the one I bought. I paid a very handsome 53p for my brush and yes I am a little proud of this sum.

            This set is very basic; it is cheap and cheerful but yet does the job. You could call this a YTS student of the toilet cleaning circle. It is cheap but does the same job as ones that cost more. It is white, the holder is white and so it the brush, there is nothing fancy about it, it is made of plastic, cheap, thin plastic. The brush sits in the holder and that is about it really. If you want one with bells on, you will have to buy something else, if you want a basic brush that will scrub you loo, bingo this is the one for you. It won't win any prizes for looks but if you are that bothered what others think of it, you can put a sticker on the side, or draw a stencil on it. For 53p you couldn't complain if it was made of cardboard!

            Good value

            Every home needs a toilet brush. However, I know some people who have spent quite a lot on theirs and I don't really get it. Considering what the product is used for, why pay so much? I get that some are considerably nicer than others but I don't care that much about my bathroom and how other people to see it to buy something expensive, which is why I have the Asda Smartprice Toilet Brush Set. Also, I share my flat with a friend from uni and neither of us want to spend more money than is absolutely necessary.

            As this is an Asda product, it can only be found in-store or online. Buying this toilet brush set will cost you roughly 50p, but the price does go up and down from time to time. Being a Smartprice product, the packaging is extremely simple. Actually, there is no packaging. The brush sits inside the holder, which has on it a green label which gives the Asda logo and the name of the product. While I would have maybe liked some plastic or cellophane to keep the two items together, I wasn't so bothered that I didn't get this. The label is easy enough to peel off and doesn't leave any marks on the base unit.

            Both the base unit and the brush are made from a cheap white plastic. The base has four small legs which are moulded out of the plastic and at the top of the base there is a round hole in which to put the brush. The hole isn't very large but it is big enough for the brush to sit in comfortably. The brush has quite a long handle and then numerous white bristles to clean with at the bottom. All in all, a very basic toilet brush set. There is nothing fancy or exceptional about this set but it looks good enough in a white bathroom.

            The brush is quite sturdy, with good quality bristles. Being something I use to clean the toilet with, all I care about is that it does the job it was made for. It doesn't need to be anything fancy. The brush size is good, giving enough bristles to clean the toilet well. The handle of the brush does feel slightly less durable than the base and the bristles of the brush so I would advise being a little bit careful with it when using.

            To clean both the brush and the base unit, all I do is wash with either soapy hot water or with a bit of bleach. At least with bleach I know things are going to get really clean whereas with soap it can be a bit hit and miss. This set is very easily cleaned and always looks like new afterwards. Being made out of white plastic, it is also easy to wipe clean if that's all it needs.

            For 50(ish)p, I think this is a great product and it does exactly what it was made for. Ok, it won't last you a million years but for the price, it isn't hard to replace it.

              Good value for money

              This is a review of the Asda Smartprice Toilet Brush Set which I have been buying for years now. I have bought dozens of these as I like to replace them often.

              What are they?
              These are a basic toilet brush with a small holder for the brush to sit in when not in use.

              In use
              We fill the base of the holder with some neat bleach to attempt to clean the brush in between uses but quite frankly, it's doing a very dirty job so when it starts to look horrible or every four months I tend to buy a new one so I can chuck the old one out. We have these next to both toilets in this house and had them in the downstairs toilet, bathroom and en suite in our old house. I don't want to be running round the house using one toilet brush and for the price, it is affordable to have one next to each toilet. To use, you just use the brush and some cleaning product (I use bleach) to have a scrub around the toilet and it means you don't have to touch the toilet when using them. I also find that by leaving the brush by the toilet visitors are able to clean any unsightly marks they make in the toilet without having to feel embarrassed at leaving it dirty.

              My experience
              I have always bought these from Asda in all the houses we have lived in and when we left the latest one, I bought new brushes for all the toilets for the new people to enjoy. We were renting out the house and so I bought bleach to go with the brushes to encourage a clean environment. Our tenants were lovely and when they left, they bought new brushes for the toilets (still Asda Smartprice Toilet Brush Sets) so I think I started a new trend there! I just thought it was a nice touch and showed that we cared.

              Price
              At the moment these sets retail for 53p which is slightly more than I have paid in the past. I have noticed that the prices for the smart price range are fluctuating upwards just lately so it's worth checking the prices before you start loading them in to your trolley.

              Final word
              I am sure the check out operative thinks I am barmy when I am stocking up on toilet brushes as I tend to buy around five at the same time so I can put some away (in case of emergency!). The thing is, they are wonderful when they are clean but when dirty they turn my stomach and so I have to replace them asap. I don't know why people spend a lot on toilet brushes really as it means you will be keeping it for a longer time. For me the Asda Smartprice Toilet Brush Set enables me to change my brush often.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A simple loo brush that does as it should without breaking the bank.

              I like nice things in my home and my bathroom is no exception however seeing that smart loo brushes were around the region of £8 I decided it was worth buying a cheaper one for a couple of reasons, firstly I like to change my loo brush every couple of months as it just doesn't seem hygeinic to me to clean the loo and then re-use it for too often so I tend to replace this every couple of months even though it is seeped in bleach whilst not in use. Secondly my loo brush is hidden down the side of the toilet so it isn't actually seen so no real point in having something pretty and so I looked in my local Asda a while ago to see if they had a cheap option and came across their smartprice brush for around 30p! I did notice the price had risen slightly the last time I purchased it but it wasn't extremely expensive, I believe it was around the 50p mark.

              The loo is this brush is nothing special, it is simply a white plastic pot that has a well to hold the brush upright, the brush has quite a large head and fits snugly into the well, the handle is around 6cm's but I haven't actually measured it so this is an estimate, it is long enough for me to reach right down to the bottom of the toilet though without touching the toilet in anyway. As it is, it is simple but for the price I don't really care what it looks like.

              Using the brush is very simple, my toilet isn't dirty nor does it have heavy limescale so I can't comment on how well it would clean would you be dealing with this however for general cleaning purposes I find this to be effective, the bristles are firm and they do stay put in the brush, even after a couple of months of use this is still in perfect condition and the only reason for replacing is my personal preference nothing to do with the quality of the brush. It feels firm enough for me to give the toilet a good scrub without it snapping. The location of the bristles are in a circular shape which means that it gets the whole of the bowl clean although of course it is too large to clean under the rim of the toilet. I haven't noticed that the bowl has been scratched in any way after using this so I do feel confident that it is cleaning well yet leaving the bowl scratch free which is good for the price I think.

              The only problem I have found using this brush and indeed any brush really is that the water collects on the brush and is then left in a pool at the bottom of the holder which is unsightly, I tend to change the bleach once a week to avoid leaving dirty water hanging around and leaving the brush as clean as possible but it is the reason as to why I replace them more often than I may have if there wasn't any water collecting.

              I would advise anyone to give this a try it is cheap and it works and it means I can replace them without breaking the bank. Definitely one of the value products that really works, I wouldn't change and I wouldn't see the point in changing the brush these days when this works so well, of course it isn't the most attractive but neither is it ugly. A definite 4 stars from me.

                A great budget priced toilet brush, why would you pay more???!

                ~ Asda Smartprice Toilet Brush Set ~

                Whenever I am in Asda I just have to walk right around the whole shop, I start off upstairs in the George clothing department and then come down the travelator which comes out just by the homeware section (or did until the had a reshuffle and it now comes out by the birthday stuff!) anyway I then walk up and down the aisles browsing at everything, it was during a browsing session that I remembered I did actually need a new toilet brush and whilst Asda has a good range of toilet brushes available when I saw this Smartprice one priced at a very respectable 53p I wasn't about to leave without buying one. I clean my toilet about three times a day due to having a house filled with males and just lil ol' me and they don't seem to notice the mess they often leave behind but I do notice it all the time! So I do end up buying toilet brushes quite often, I tend to change them every other month and I am not particularly fussy on how they look, I did used to spend stupid amounts on 'posh' looking toilet brushes but this was working out to be a total waste of money! So now I do tend to opt for cheaper ones and usually spend about £2. My last one before this was a pink and purple number from B&M's.

                This toilet brush is a no frills toilet brush, there is nothing fancy about it at all, its a simple white plastic bottom container in which stands a simple white plastic brush.

                When I clean the toilet, I pour either toilet cleaner or bleach under the rim and leave it for a few moments, I then give it a scrub with the brush and then I pour a little cleaner over the brush and rinse the brush under the flush of the toilet to keep it looking and smelling clean and fresh.

                I don't think the price of a toilet brush makes much difference to how they perform, as it is down to how you scrub the toilet that depends on how clean it is and that is how this goes for this brush. I don't find that a more expensive brush has outperformed this brush at all and I am pleased to say that a 53p brush does the job just as well as an £8 brush.

                I keep the toilet brush pretty much behind the toilet anyway so I am not bothered by how it looks but this is a simple plain white no frills job, if you are looking for something fancy then this won't be the one for you, but as it is plain white it would go well with any bathroom decor. The brush is a decent size but overall it is quite compact and will fit in quite small spaces.

                Overall I am very impressed with this toilet brush, it cleans the toilet well which is all I hoped it would do. The handle isn't really long but I don't think it needs to be any longer than it is anyway. It does the job intended just fine.

                Thanks for reading :o) x

                A great toilet accessory

                My house is not always wonderfully tidy having two young children, a full time job and a menagerie of animals but I am obsessed with my bathroom and kitchen being clean as I think these are the most important rooms in the house to be clean.

                When myself and my husband first moved in together we bought cheaper items as we didn't have much money with the idea that we will replace as we go however we actually found that this item was really good and we have kept replacing it with the same one.

                The brush currently costs 53p and of course being part of the Smartprice range it is only available at Asda although similar can be bought elsewhere. The toilet brush and holder doesn't come with any packaging just a simple sticker on the front of it and the only colour on it was the green of the Smartprice logo, the sticker peeled off easily without leaving any residue.

                The holder and brush is made of white plastic, the bottom is a cube shape which tapered in at the top, inside the holder is a long dome shape which the brush sits into. The brush has a long white plastic handle and then has lots of string white bristles on it about 2 inches long each. The whole item is very light and occasionally the brush sticks in the holder and when you pick it up the holder comes up too but I have learnt just to give the brush a little twist before taking it out of the holder.

                The toilet brush is a good length and you can push it as far round the u bend as it can go and your hands are still nowhere near the water line. The bristles are really strong and they clean the toilet really well, I find it best to put a toilet cleaner around the toilet basin and leave it to work for a while and then using the brush I give it a really good scrub. The toilet comes up sparkling and I am really pleased with the results I get, everyday I give the toilet a little rub around though so it is never allowed to get dirty.

                Every week when I clean the bathroom thoroughly I give the toilet brush and holder a wash too as water does collect in the bottom of the holder, the holder cleans very easily although the brush is a little harder to clean. I would recommend this product, it sits neatly behind the toilet so barely gets noticed, it gives a good clean and it is a great price.

                it does its job!

                When me and my friend first moved into our flat we went shopping to get supplies for our new home. A toilet brush isnt something I really get excited about spending my money on, so I decided to go for the cheapest one I could find, which was this one from ASDA. If I remember correctly I think it was about 50 pence for the brush and base - which is a bargain!

                The toilet brush itself didnt come in any packaging, it just had an asda sticker and barcode on the size of the base. The item itself is completely white, the base sits on four legs, the brush has a reasonable long handle with a white bristly brush on the end. For some reason the top of a handmade has a small hole in it but im not sure what thats for - a toilet brush isnt something your going to hang from the wall. The whole product together is quite small so it fits very nicely and discreetly behind my toilet out of sight. I use it about twice a week in combination with bleach to give the inside of my toilet a good scrub and rinse and it seems to do the trick just fine. Im not entirely sure what a moer expensive brush can do that this one doesnt to be honest.

                I clean my brush regularly with bleach and hot water and it has stayed nice and clean and white. I was a bit concerned it would look a bit dirty with its bright white colour but its stayed nice and clean. I have been tempted since to upgrade to a fancier looking toilet brush but then I remember its just a toilet brush and there are better things to spend my money on!

                Overall I would definitely recommend it, its does the job and I have had no problems with it, and for 50 pence you cant really go wrong!
