This is a great bottle brush as it has two ends - one for the bottle and one for the teat. What I like about this is that you don''t have to fish around in the water for the tiny teat brush because it is all in one. In terms of washing it does a pretty ordinary job and the wired stick it is on can bend and wear.
When I brought my tommee tippee steam steralised for my fourth child just over two years ago this bottle brush came free with the steralised so I wasn't expecting it to be very good or last through the twelve months of bottle washing.
It is a nice size with a large brush on one end for cleaning the inside of the bottles and a small brush on the other end for cleaning the teats of the bottles too. Both the brushes have quite hard bristles compared to others I have used which removes any residue really easily but doesn't scratch or Mark the plastic of the bottles so is fantastic.
I have used mine to clean the bottles for twelve months and as it was still In perfect condition after this didn't want to just throw it away so used it with the general washing up for pop bottles and glasses I struggled to reach the bottom of, it is still in my kitchen going strong today.
a few months ago I brought a new steralised for our new baby and sadly these no longer come with them but have to be brought separately so I am continuing to use my original one but these really are worth buying in my opinion, they are more expensive than others on the market but I have had the cheaper ones in the past and they just don't last like this one has so it really is worth the extra.
The none slip rubber handle makes it really comfortable to hold too whilst using it and I haven't seen this on other bottle brushes so is a very nice useful feature.
This design of bottle brush currently retails at around six pounds but is being phased out as they now have a new design of this brush on the market that I can only hope is going to be as good as this one has been.
I bought this bottle cleaner when I bought the bottles for my baby.
I use the tommee tippee bottles so it made sense to buy the brush to go with them. Some people had told me that these were a waste of money and that you can easily clean the bottles without one but I wanted to make sure they were thoroughly cleaned so thought it was worth investing in one.
I have found the brush very easy to use. I found the best way to use the brush was with hot soapy water in the sink and to give the bottles a really good wash with the brush.
The bristles on the brush are really good quality and no matter how hard you push the brush it does not damage them, they do not bend and none of them have fallen off.
The bristles are rounded on either end. On the top of the brush there is a big brush which I have found useful for cleaning the bottles themselves it is a perfect size. At the other end there are smaller bristles The small bristles can get into the small sections on the bottom near the top and I also use it to clean the teats, it works really well and can get right inside the top of the teat where sometimes milk gets caught and sticks. The handle on the brush is really easy to hold and get a grip on which helps when cleaning out the awkward areas.
I paid £4 for this brush from the internet and it has lasted me 5 months so far without any problems it still looks like new.
The brush is definitely good value for money and I feel that it does an excellent job; my bottles are definitely much cleaner than if I was using a cloth.
I would recommend this product for anyone using baby bottles.
I purchased the Tommee Tippee bottle and teat brush just after my baby was born because I'd already bought their branded bottles and felt this was the right choice to use with them. I forget the exact price I bought it for but it was from Tesco for around £2 mark - today it's on sale there for £2.35. It is also available from Amazon and other baby stores too.
The bottle brush comes in plastic and cardboard packaging, which I was glad about as I bought mine via Tesco's online grocery facility and was worried it might pick up dirt on it's way. The brush consists of a handle in the centre and two twisted metal rods that have bristles on. One has a big section of bristles (the brush for the bottles) and the other has a smaller section of bristles (the brush for the teats). The brush I have is slightly different to the picture, it looks the same but the blue parts on mine are yellow instead. I suppose that's a bit more neutral!
I'll be honest and admit I don't use the brush every single time I sterilise bottles because I find I don't have to, but it is handy whenever a bottle has stubborn milk stains on it and I do use it often to tackle those. The handle in the centre has a grip part on it which means it's very easy to hold to use. All I do is pop the bottle brush in and swirl it around at the same time as a bit of warm water. The bristles are effective at getting the stains off quickly. Very stubborn stains do take a bit longer as expected but it does remove those very well too. The bristles aren't soft to touch, they feel quite coarse to touch really but this must help with the milk stain removal. The teat brush is the better part in my view - it fits the Tommee Tippee wide neck bottle teats like a glove and is very useful in removing the specks of milk that build up in those. I find that it's the teats on our bottles that build up with milk more. I do have Boots own branded bottles too for days out but I've never attempted to use this brush in there, The bottle part of the brush though looks a little too wide for their standard neck bottles so this item may not be suitable for use with all types of bottle.
I do think that although it's a very good brush, it could be designed a little better. I'm really not keen on the metal rods that extend from the handle that the bristles are attached to. The rods extend slightly longer than the bristles and this means that they always catch when using. In particular the metal rod on the bottle part of the brush goes right through me when using. That sounds weird I know, but the scrape of the metal on the bottom of the bottle is awful - it resembles the same kind of thing as scratching nails down a chalkboard and I find it a bit uncomfortable to use as a result.
I would recommend this brush but not really for it's features, just because it is very handy to have to tackle milk stains. I own another bottle brush from Boots and they are similar to me. I think it's a very handy item to have if you also own the Tommee Tippee wide neck bottles but if not, I would definitely look at other brushes out there too as I don't feel that this offers any more than others available. I rate it 3 stars - the sratching while using has got to take off 2 stars.
Cleaning your baby's bottles is really important. Babies need their bottles to be cleaned properly so that they do not develop illnesses and before you sterilise the bottles it's important to wash them out properly first. I don't think you can wash out a bottle without using a brush.
We bought this bottle brush for £4 and it has two ends to it which make cleaning bottles really a lot more easy and properly efficient.
On one side there is a thicker brush and the opposite side is a much thinner, smaller one. It is more attractive than a basic bottle brush as it's got different coloured bristles on it. The bristles are quite thick so you get a good scrubbing action from them.
The wider side we use inside the bottles. It's slightly narrower at the end which makes getting into the rounded bottom of a bottle much easier. It is long enough to reach to the bottom of even the longest bottles. I find by just putting it into the bottle and turning it around a few times it cleans it well. It's comfortable to hold too as the handle is quite thick and shaped well for the hand. The little side I use for the smaller parts of the bottle- we have a bottle with various components so the neck of the bottle and the teat is cleaned with this side.
I think that it cleans the bottles well, I often put some fairy liquid onto it so that it lathers up and cleans best.
The brush over time does lose its shape and should be replaced. We clean the brush several times a week in a bowl full of hot, soapy water.
It is a very good quality brush, highly recommended.
I bought this brush a couple of weeks ago when I found it for £1.50 in my local Home Bargains store, I don't have any babies anymore so no bottles to clean but my elder daughter drinks from a sports bottle and I have found giving it a full clean difficult along with her school water bottle so thought this would be perfect.
You can buy the brush in supermarkets and chemists and of course there are many different types of bottle brush which pretty much all do the same job, the thing I liked with this one is that there is a thick end and a thin end for easy cleaning. Supermarkets generally sell this brush for between £2 and £2.50.
The brush is basically a plastic rod with soft wide bristles at one end and then much smaller bristles at the other end, it is white and blue in colour and is pretty sturdy and doesn't feel like it's going to snap while you are using it.
The bristles work really well and they keep their shape well, I have found that even though I push the bristles into a small opening to clean the sports bottle and then pull them back through the same small opening they still hold their original shape really well. The small end of the brush is really useful for cleaning the top of the sports bottles and is much better than using a cloth which really wasn't giving a complete clean.
The brush is certainly worth 5 stars as it is a decent price, durable and cleans the bottles out really well which was the whole point of buying it, I am very pleased with it.
Tommee Tippee bottle and teat brush
I'm sure anyone with a baby will know the importance of sterilising and cleaning everything to do with feeding within an inch of its life. So when we started using bottles and a breast pump I wanted to get a brush that could be popped into the steriliser along with everything else and used only for cleaning the baby's things. When I was in Asda I was just planning on purchasing a bog standard bottle brush until I noticed the Tommee Tippee bottle and teat brush for £2.
I did think that being the same brand as the bottles and breast pump that we are currently using would mean the Tommee Tippee brush would be more suited to the task at hand over some generic supermarket brush. However, if I am honest it really is just a standard generic bottle brush with a smaller teat cleaner with the branded Tommee Tippee label. It is ever so slightly shorter in length than some of the other bottle brushes I have owned in the past, but it doesn't do anything a non-branded brush wouldn't do.
The brush is very good, the bristles are quite soft and I have found it perfectly suited for the job at hand. It is easy to hold, easy to use and easy to clean. As I mentioned previously I only use the brush for cleaning my baby's bottles and when it is not in use it tends to stay in my 5 litre cold water steriliser, which it fits in perfectly. I am not sure there is much else to really say about the brush, it is a simple and straight forward piece of kit, definitely a must have but not something that requires a lot of explanation.
The Tommee Tippee bottle and teat brush is something that I would certainly recommend to anyone in need of something similar, as I have so far found it perfectly suited to the task at hand. I'm sure it would also serve really well to clean out animal bottles or even clean other household items such as champagne or wine glasses that can be a real pain to do with a normal washing up brush.
Overall, the Tommee Tippee bottle and teat brush gets the full five out of five stars from me. Yes it doesn't do anything special but it works well and it has so far not really shown any signs of wear and tear despite being used several times a day and constantly left in the cold water steriliser.
Considering the price, the durability and so far being perfectly suited to the task at hand I believe the Tommee Tippee bottle and teat brush deserves no less than five out of five stars. I have already bought a spare one of these and I'm sure in the future I will be buying more.
When my daughter was still using bottles, I had a set of bottle brushes which comprised a small, medium and large brush. But I was forever losing the small one, and I found them hard to store and keep clean and dry. So I was so pleased to find the Tommee Tippee Bottle and Teat Brush on offer in my local Tesco for only £2, that's a great price as I've seen it for £4 in John Lewis.
The Tommee Tippee Bottle and Teat Brush comprises of one large, splayed out brush end, a plastic and rubber handle, and a much smaller brush end. It is mainly white however a section of the handle and the end of each brush is accented in one of three colours - yellow, blue or pink, we went for pink being as she's a girl. The bottle brush is excellent to use - because of the way the bristles are splayed out it gets right into all the crevices and with a few twists the bottle is clean. The smaller end is great for lids and teats and even my breast pump which needs to be cleaned and sterilised too. The brush itself can be stored in a standard stand up wire basket type holder, no need to worry about losing tiny wire brushes. It is easily cleaned in hot soapy water.
It lasted me well for the 6 months I used it and though I have thrown it away now as I no longer need it I will be sure to replace my Tommee Tippee Bottle and Teat Brush with another if and when the time comes. Usually I try to go for a non brand named supermarket own baby product but for £2 the Tommee Tippee Bottle and Teat Brush is a real bargain, and it does the job brilliantly as well as looking nice.
I highly recommend it and if you've been using regular wire brushes to clean your feeding equipment I'd say give this a go, it's much much easier to use and when you have 10 bottles to clean then sterilise, that makes a difference!
5 out of 5 stars from me, the Tommee Tippee Bottle and Teat Brush is well worth buying.
TOMMEE TIPPIEE BOTTLE AND TEAT BRUSH
***THE PRODUCT AND PRICE***
The tommee tippiee bottle and teat brush is available to purchase from tesco, amazon and mothercare, it may also be available in other places, but these are the 3 that i know off.
I paid £2.39 for my brush, although this was reduced down from £3.79, I purchased mine from my local tesco.
The brush is double ended, One end has a smaller brush which is for cleaning the bottle teats and is mainly white, although it does have a spot of pink on it, The other end has a larger brush which is used for cleaning bottles and is white and pink.
The bristles on the brush are a good size and quite strong, they also bend so that if your using it to clean smaller and narrow bottles you won't have any problems.
Im quite pleased with this bottle brush and think i got a good bargain with it, Mine is now 3 months old and still going strong, I like the fact that the bristles are strong yet bend to reach into smaller/narrow bottles.
It reaches all parts of the bottle and the teat and cleans them well with no struggles at all, I will when I need to go out and buy a new one to replace the current one I have and will be happy to pay full price for this.
I also like the fact that it is available in white/blue and pink/white, The one thing that this doesn't have though unlike previous bottle brushes I have had is that it doesn't have a hook or anything to hang it, and I don't like to keep mine lying around by the sink next to my dish cloths and brushes, So I keep mine stored in a glass near the bottles.
For this reason I will award this brush 4 stars,
I bought this Tommee Tippee bottle brush from Asda for around £2, to clean my babies bottles. I did not think it would be any good to be honest as it was so cheap, but I am actually very happy with this bottle brush.
This bottle brush is white and blue, and has a thin brush on one end for cleaning your teats, this is really handy, and you can squeeze it right into the end of the teat to clean every part, and also this is great to clean the ring at the top where the tops screw on.
On the other end is a bigger brush which you use to clean the actually bottle. The bristles are nice and soft and haven't scratched my bottles, which are glass NUK bottles. I have also used this brush on my Tommee Tippee plastic bottles and it hasn't scratched these either. You definitely need a bottle brush to clean your bottles as it would be a bit hard trying to get your dishcloth or a sponge right down to the bottom of the bottles.
The bristles fold in when you push it into the bottle so will even fit into very narrow necked bottles. It has a nice long handle so you can get right down to the bottom of the bottle and clean all the milk left down there and any residue. The handle is nice and easy to grip, no slipping. It is also really lightweight, and easy to clean, I just soak mine in hot soapy water.
My brush is starting to look a bit tatty and worn out now, but it has lasted 4 months for £2 so I cannot complain! It is only the bristles which look like they need replacing, no problems at all with the handle part. I will definitely be replacing this with the same one, I can't find any faults with it, it does the job I need it for perfectly and leaves my bottles squeaky clean!
I have a (nearly) six month old daughter who is bottle fed. When she was newborn I seemed to washing and sterilising bottles constantly, now she's slowed down on the bottles as she is having a bit of food, my hands get a break from hot water! I bought a bottle brush as they are specially designed for washing bottles and for cleaning right inside the teat and round the curves of the bottle.
I have had about 4 of these now as I find the bristles get too 'flat' after a while. The most recent reason for replacing was my nan had come over to help and she must've thought the bottle brush was a washing up brush and cleaned the grill pan with it!!
-- Packaging and Price and Availability --
These are sold in a wide range of shops now, I think all supermarkets which sell baby milk will sell these alongside the sterilising equipment. I paid around £3 for this from Asda. This was simply packaged on a cardboard sheet with plastic covering the brush itself.
-- Ease of use --
These are very easy to use and obviously being designed for cleaning bottles the bristles are just the right shape to get into the curves of the bottle to ensure it is thoroughly cleaned. One end of the brush is the bigger end for the main bottle and then the smaller end is to clean inside the teat itself. I usually turn the teat inside out to give it a scrub and then turn it the right way and clean inside with the small end.
-- Overall Summary --
These are easy to use bottle brushes, which are available in a wide range of shops at an affordable price.
I work as a childminder/ nanny/ mother's help and babysitter when I'm not studying for my teaching course. I absolutely love the job and thoroughly enjoy spending time with all the children I look after.
In recent years I had more jobs that involve much younger children and babies. Currently I look after two babies (separate families) which I've been with since they were born about 4/5 months ago. As a result I find myself cleaning an awful lot of bottles and it is interesting to use the different brushes and see which I find easiest and most effective.
I've been using this particular Tommee Tippee brush for about 3 months now (not the same exact brush, but the same type...we do change them). It is a double ended brush designed for cleaning bottles and teats. One end there is a wide barrelled bristle brush which curves towards the end. The bristles are evenly spaced and distributed across the brush. This part of the brush is also two toned, there are a variety of colours but I've been using a pink one most recently.
The centre of the brush is a plastic and metal central handle. This has a rubber panel in it which is easy to grip and the shape of the middle is designed to fit your hand easily. Even when this gets wet it is still really easy to hold and doesn't become too slippery.
The other end has a much smaller bristle brush that is just in one colour. The bristles again are evenly spaced, though slightly tighter together. This end is perfect for cleaning smaller parts of the bottle including the teats. The shape makes it easy to get around these smaller parts of the bottle and make sure they are really clean before sterilising. I tend to use the wider end for inside the actual bottle part to get any remaining milk residue out.
These brushes cost you roughly £3, though it does vary depending on where you buy them from. They come in a variety of colours too, which is handy if you want one to match the colour scheme of your kitchen (or the sex of your baby I suppose?). I think the brush is well designed and easy to use. There are obviously cheaper brushes out there but for a brush that fits all bottles and is designed specifically for this type of cleaning it is good to go for one of this type.
A brush that is really easy to use and works well for cleaning bottles and teats.
WHAT IS IT?
A dual ended bottle cleaning brush from Tommee Tippee. One end has a standard size bottle brush and at the other end is a much smaller brush for cleaning the teats.
The design is good but you lose the hanging hook by having the teat brush at the end. Mine is yellow but I like the blue one better because the yellow has faded very quickly and it looks old now even though the brush has only been used for seven weeks.
WHAT I THINK
I like this bottle and teat brush from Tommee Tippee but it is awkward to store because of there not being a hanging hook on it. Tommee Tippee bottles are wide but this brush can also be used for thin bottles because there is only a wire stem under the bristles instead of a thick plastic handle.
The bristles spring back when you've used the brush to clean your baby's bottles but they feel very soft so I don't know if I trust it completely to clean my daughters bottles as thoroughly as they need to be cleaned. I use very hot water and sometimes push a clean cloth into the bottle to make sure all the milk has been removed before sterilising the bottles.
The teat brush has got very stiff bristles and I am always confident that the rubber and silicone teats have been cleaned properly. If I have left milk in my daughters bottle for longer than I should have I always scrub them with a small amount of salt and then use the teat brush to get rid of all traces and make sure the teat is as clean as it can be.
This Tommee Tippee Bottle and Teat Brush feels strong and is comfortable to use because of the small rubber area, it has never slipped out of my hand while I'm washing my daughters bottles. It feels a bit top heavy when I'm using the teat brush end but not as much as I thought it would, when I clean the brush I just hold it under hot running water for a minute and leave it to dry on the drainer.
4 Dooyoo Stars.
Thankfully bottle feeding is now a thing of the past but when it was a fact of life for us this was a great £2.99 invested in this double ended cleaning brush. We went through two or three of these bottle brushes but at the low price that they retailed for and the good quality of the clean that they provided it was money well spent in my opinion.
The brush itself is double ended with a handle in the middle, the one end is very narrow or precise brushing, it has a small rubber nub at the end to really get into crevices and around the base of the bottle that you are cleaning. The thicket end has much wider bristles and is ideal for cleaning the main body of the bottle. I have used this brush on a variety of bottles and there have never been any issues with it, you are not restricted to only using it with the Tommee Tippee branded bottles, it works fine on other brands as well.
It is easy to grip and also nice and easy to clean after use, the brip is comfortable and easy to hold onto. It has a nice ergonomic design and the bristles are of a good quality, I never had any issues with bristles becomming detached and left behind in the bottle.
I would certainly recommend this brush to anyone looking for something to clean their babies bottles with, it is affordable and gets the job done.
I've had a variety of bottle brushes for washing up my daughters bottles, although they would have probably lasted longer than I used them, I liked to replace them every few months. The bottle brush we are using at the moment is this one from Tommee Tippee, it was the very first bottle brush I had owned so knew it would be perfect to replace my Boots brush a few months ago.
Although my daughter is two and a half, she still has half a bottle of milk at night. Some people may slate me for this but with the amount of trouble I have had with her sleeping, this works for us. I often worry about germs and bacteria and like to make sure the bottles are washed up properly so a bottle brush is essential.
The bottle brush is available to buy in a variety of places that sell baby products, I think I purchased this one from Boots for around £3.
The bottle brush from Tommee Tippee is pretty much the same as any other bottle brush. It has two different ends, one big end with a lot of bristles, and one small end with a bit of rubber made into a small point. The larger end is suitable for washing the main body of the bottles, we use Tommee Tippee bottles and it fits into these with ease. I also like to use the pointed small end around the bottom of the bottle just to get into the crevasses. The pointed end is then used to clean the bottle teats. The shape of this end means it's easy to get into the cracks around the teat without causing any damage to the teat itself.
The handle of the bottle brush is comfortable to hold, it's a little different to dooyoo's picture as it has a more curved design. It is found more towards the smaller end of the brush than the bigger end. This is perfect as you can get a good comfortable grip for scrubbing the main body of bottles, but then when you come to wash the teat, the handle is near to that end so it's easier to direct the brush to where you want it to go.
I'd definitely recommend this Tommee Tippee bottle brush, it cleans well and the two different ends serve their purpose well, the handle is comfortable to hold, definitely worth the £3.
A bottle brush is essential for cleaning your bottles thoroughly before you put them in your steriliser. This one is double-ended: good strong bristles reach right inside the bottles at one end, while the mini-bristles at the other are ideal to help you r
