Oh blessed coconut! Life of curries and all things delicious! And the life of a good toilet scrub.

This brush comes typically in 3 sizes, and its bristles in 3 levels of toughness - the darker the colour the harder its bristle. I grew up with this brush as the default tool for scrubbing the kitchen sink, the chopping board, and there's always one for the toilet floor. This is not nostalgia - it is just a better product than a plastic scrub or scouring brush: lasts longer; well-designed and looks good; natural and organic; and works.

But this is a neighbourgood that is, sadly, no longer as common in the neighbourhood general stores, probably because it is no longer as often used.

If you, like us, still clean your own house - get yourself these coconut scrubs.
