Some people enjoy cleaning. Scouring away dirt gives you a feeling of accomplishment and can even be a stress-relieving workout. But nobody wants an aching back or sore arms from excessively trying to scrub away tough grime. Fortunately, some highly recommended products can help.
Hiware Four-Piece Drill Brush Set
The Hiware four-piece drill brush set claims to take the hard work out of cleaning tubs, tile and many other surfaces. And judging by its popularity, that claim may be accurate.
This set of drill attachments includes three medium-stiffness nylon bristled round brushes in different sizes. It also comes with a stainless steel chuck that allows you to attach the brushes to your drill.
The different sizes and shapes let you select the most effective brush for the job. You can use it in the bathroom, throughout your home and even in your vehicle, swimming pool or on other outdoor items.
This drill brush set has nearly 28,000 ratings and 4.5 out of 5 stars. Customers who reviewed the set love that it’s easy to use, works well on tile and grout and removes nasty hard water stains.
“Wow what a great product,” wrote user Real Life Mommy. “It made cleaning my bathroom a breeze. The brushes fit right on my drill and were ready to use out of the box. I was surprised at how well the brushes held up, they are very durable and still look brand new after several uses. I would recommend these for any tough stains. I will be a repeat customer for years to come.”
Some say it works on more than just the tub, as well.
“I bought a second set to use in the kitchen and with some Bar Keepers Friend and water my grody gas range looked almost brand new,” one reviewer wrote, adding, “Out of everything, though, I think my favorite use I have found for them so far is on my old baking pans.”
On the other hand, several reviewers stated that the bristles were not as tough as they thought they would be. In addition, some mentioned being careful where you use the drill brush set, as it can damage some surfaces, like plastic.
The Hiware four-piece drill brush set is usually $16, but it’s currently on sale for $8.05.
