Scrubbing the bathroom is few people’s favourite task, but it’s one that everyone regrets putting off too long—no one wants to be greeted by a grimy shower or bathtub first thing in the morning. Ensure your bathroom (and mornings) sparkle by picking the best tile scrubber for the job. The most capable brushes can clean your tiles thoroughly, from top to bottom and into every corner, while saving you time and effort. But which tile brush should you choose? Keep reading to find out.

  • For thoroughly scrubbing the shower walls, from top to bottom, without the effort of stretching and climbing, your back will thank you for picking a brush with an extendable handle. Look for a non-slip grip to ensure you maintain control while the handle’s fully extended. An extendable handle also has the advantage of providing enough length for a thorough cleaning while being easier to store than a long handled brush.
  • Bathroom chores expose your tile brushes to a lot of water. For greater control and comfort, choose a brush with a non-slip, ergonomic handle. The brush will stay firmly in your grasp, rather than sliding around in the tub, and your hand will be cushioned leaving you free to fearlessly apply pressure where needed. Also check that the handle is made of a durable metal or plastic that can withstand intense scrubbing.
  • From tackling grout to digging into tight corners, no two cleaning jobs are the same. Look for a combination set that includes brushes of varying sizes, from small for tackling taps, fixtures and drains to large for tubs, walls and floors. It’s also more economical than buying each brush separately. For the toughest scrubbing jobs, select a brush with durable nylon bristles, a sturdy handle and non-slip grip.
