1. I use the bristle-brush cleaner that came with my turkey baster for scrubbing my smelly kitchen drain. A lot of gross gunk clings on that even a baking soda and vinegar treatment just can’t take care of. But a quick swirl of the bristle-brush does the trick every time! It’s skinny enough to go down the drain, long enough to reach quite a way, and there’s a ring at the top so even if I drop it (oops!) I don’t lose it forever because the ring is too large to let the entire brush fall down the drain (whew!)
2. My little girls are forever pulling my eye shadow brushes apart and losing the little sticks. I found that I could insert the “y” section of a bobby pin into the eye shadow chub and it fills it out quite nicely while making a sturdy little handle.
3. I use my baby bottle brush (even though I have no more babies or bottles to scrub) to scrub the cheese off my box grater. Rather than chewing up sponges by grating them over the surface, the bottle brush is gentle yet strong enough to well…cut the cheese.
