This past March, I posted a photo of a couple of Tawashi Scrubbing brushes that we bought from the Daiso (dollar store) up in Niles . We recently went back and I found a couple of different scrubbing brush products that I brought home. The first one, is what you see at the top of this post: they call it a toilet brush, but if you look at the photos, you'll see that it is designed to clean the Toto toilet washlet . The other scrubbing product - below - is also for the toilet. But this one is for the bowl. They bill it as having 'pumice abrasive'. With two exclamation points. I haven't used either of them yet, but you can bet that I'll report back on the outcomes here. I mean...who isn't sitting on the edge of their (washlet) seat just wondering if these dollar store items are any good? Gross? Or the good kind of gross?

If you flip the package over, you'll see that they're made in Sri Lanka or somewhere else. I'm happy to pay $10 or $12 for a real-deal Japanese one. But those other ones? Meh. Especially when I'm not sure how long they'll last before the left-over scrambled eggs that are stuck to the pan infest the brushes. That was, until, we went to our first US-based Daiso called Hello Tokyo up in Niles . At Hello Tokyo - everything (well..
