The OXO Good Grips Compact Toilet Brush and Canister conceals the brush head almost like magic: The canister opens and closes automatically when you pull the brush out or put it in. And there’s enough air circulation to prevent mildew buildup. In addition to looking great, this brush has the best bristles of any we tested. The OXO pairs stiff, rim-scrubbing bristles with gentle, bowl-brushing fibers, which are capable of picking up substantial grime without flicking much water. The brush heads are also replaceable, which creates less waste. We also appreciate that the OXO comes in beige, white, gray, and black, so you can better match it to your decor.

Simplehuman Toilet Brush

Simplehuman Toilet Brush

Stylish and unusual

The Simplehuman brush has a sleeker look than any other we tried, and the caddy allows the replaceable brush head to air-dry quickly. But the unique brush design takes some getting used to.

If the OXO is not available, or if you’re looking for a more polished look, we like the Simplehuman Toilet Brush, available in white or black. The Simplehuman was clearly the most stylish toilet brush we looked at, but it also hit all the right marks on performance. The brush’s unique circular bristle pattern makes it easy to get to the underside of the toilet rim as well as down in the bottom of the bowl, but this may take a little getting used to. The Simplehuman is slightly taller than others we tried, but its caddy is very narrow, so it’s a good choice if you’re short on floor space. The caddy also has an open back that allows the brush to dry between uses. The drawback with the Simplehuman brush is that it’s on the expensive side compared with some others we tested. As with the OXO’s, the Simplehuman’s brush heads are replaceable.
