Do you ever scroll Facebook late at night and catch yourself watching all the videos and ads, in kind of a daze? Yeah, me neither, um, I just heard about that kind of thing from a friend. (cough, cough)
So, unrelated of course, last August I totally made a very late night splurge purchase on a cleaning brush set. Cleaning brushes that attached to my power drill. Yes, the ad video was very convincing.
The ad said the brushes were “on sale” for about $50, but I checked if they were on other websites. I usually cross-check any expensive online purchase. I found them on Amazon for less than $18 (well, they are $17.95 at the time I’m writing this blog post). Since we were getting our new home prepped to move in, I decided to go for it.
I drove over to the new house that day to let the painters in and decided it was a good chance to deep clean with the buddy I brought with me. This is my Shelly, who was going through a case of Bell’s Palsy, which is why her beautiful face wasn’t looking so symmetrical for a few weeks.
(The following video is a few seconds of my daughter using it. She had to get used to how powerfully the drill was spinning the brush!)
We BOTH wanted to be the one to use the fun new cleaning tool, but I was nice and let her do it a majority of the time. I’m such a good mom, sometimes.
I just kind of made up how to use it as we went, but this was the cleaning groove that worked for us:
- Spray the area we wanted to clean (pictured is tile and grout). We tried a few different cleaners and liked them both.
- Use the drill brush and clean it.
- Rinse with water.

My favorite brush was the one not in my pictures, but the big rounded end one here below. I’ve used that in lots of places since I took these pictures last August. This is the set I got:
Sometimes I regret my late night purchases, and sometimes I don’t. (At least, that’s what my friend said. 😉) Ha!
From my home to yours,
I got these for Christmas last year! I’ve only used it once but plan to break them out again soon. The only problem I had with them was the bristles seem to fall out easily, which makes me worry they won’t stand up to tough stains. We’ll see though!
Did you get the exact same ones in this post? I don’t think I’ve had a single bristle fall out. 🤷♀️
