The amazing toilet bowl scrubber!

This might seem weird to be talking about cleaning the toilet, but I had to tell you about a way that we've been saving money this way.

You know the plastic scrubbers (with disposable sponges) that you can buy at almost any retail store? Well, they are so expensive!  After you run out of the sponges, you have to keep buying packs of refills (usually 4 in a box) and it could run you 3-4 dollars every time--yikes!  So, I came up with a way to save money, but still have the convenience of using that plastic holder so that my hands stay clean.

All you've got to do is go to the dollar store (or Wal-mart), buy a pack of sponges and cut them in half. My last package of sponges were a pack of six, so I came out with 12 mini sponges to attach to the plastic holder.  I used a pair of scissors to slice open the bottom of the sponge to insert the tip of the holder.  And that's it!  I use my own bathroom cleaner to spray the inside and outside of the toilet, wait a few minutes, then scrub away!  When you're done, throw away the sponge and rinse the plastic holder.  

So, there you have it--hope this give you an idea on how to save money and keep your toilet bowl sparking clean. :)
