#Microbiotiful - A toilet brush
Toilet brushes come into contact with feces, which is where the microbes we found probably originate from. See what we found on our contact plate!
Experiment N. 05
Yes, they carry plenty of bacteria from a source of ill hygienic repute. And yes, some people avoid having them altogether. But toilet brushes are more of an esthetic issue — you don’t usually touch the brush portion, and as long as the brush isn’t squeezed into a tight containment and doesn’t sit in a puddle, it’s probably not that bad. Most hygiene experts agree that bathrooms, even those with toilets, are generally not as much an issue as kitchens—in particular ones where week-old sponges are used to “wash” the dishes or damp wiping cloths are habitually hung up on the handles of drawers or the oven after each use.
