Maintenance & cleaning

Your stainless steel accessories will never rust or tarnish, are easy to clean and will last a lifetime which is why we offer a lifetime guarantee.

The corrosion resistance of stainless steel stems from an extremely thin but tenacious and self-repairing film which forms on it’s surface.  It does not chip, flake, crack or break.

The best cleaning method for stainless steel finishes is to use a mild diluted detergent in warm water and rub in the direction of the finish.  It is best to select cleaners that say ‘suitable for stainless steel’.  Rinse and wipe dry afterwards.  Silicone based household polish, can be used on the cleaned and dried surface, but is not usually required.

Household cleaners (like Handy Andy) are not ideal and should only be used occasionally if required to remove grooming products from soap dishes and shower racks.  The outside surface area of the toilet brush holders need to be routinely cleaned as the chemical cleaners used to clean toilet bowls will leave stains.  Do not use course abrasive powders or metallic scourers or “silver cleaners”.

Lime scale deposits from hard water can be cleaned by soaking in a 25% vinegar solution and periodic brushing with a nylon bristled brush.  Regular cleaning is the best prevention of build-up rather than an aggressive single cleaning.

Toilet Brush Maintenance & cleaning

Our toilet brushes are made from 1.5mm thick stainless steel tubing.  We weld the bottom closed with 1.5mm stainless steel plate so that there will never be any leaking and each brush comes with a handle and lid to hide the plastic brush.

The stainless steel toilet brush holders will never rust or tarnish, and if kept clean, will last a lifetime which is why we offer a lifetime guarantee.  The corrosion resistance of stainless steel stems from an extremely thin but tenacious and self-repairing film which forms on it’s surface.  It does not chip, flake, crack or break.

We do not supply a plastic inner for our toilet brushes as there is no need for one.  Cheaper toilet brushes are often made from turned plate and have a seam and pressed base that is not watertight; these cannisters would need the plastic tubing to prevent leakage.  Having to put your hand into the cannister to pull out a dirty, wet plastic tube is unhygienic.

The only part of our toilet brush holders that is plastic is the brush, these are replaceable and can be purchased from the stockist you bought your unit from. 

Wall-mounted brushes are easily taken off their brackets by unscrewing the nut on the side of each bracket and sliding off the cannister.

The outside surface area of the toilet brush holders need to be routinely cleaned as the chemical cleaners used to clean toilet bowls will leave stains if the “toilet water” drips down the outside of the cannister.

Household cleaners (like Handy Andy) are not ideal and should only be used occasionally if required.  Do not use course abrasive powders or metallic scourers or “silver cleaners”.
