My husband used to gross me out by cleaning his toilet with a plain brush in the water. Yuck! On the other hand I would wait until we had ring around the bowl– yuck!– and then do a heavy duty scrub with cleaners.
You’ve given us a middle path. Now I have a daily water swish, and on Home Blessing Day I scrub with cleaner and soak the brush in cleaner in the bowl. That takes care of my germophobia and saves worrying about the dog tipping a liquid brush container.
It’s great to never see a dirty bowl.
