The OXO Good Grips Grout Brush has multiple uses in the home. It is handy for cleaning grout on back splashes, floors and shower walls but it can also be used for a variety of other applications. The bristles are gentle enough to use on vinyl and leather boots to brush off mud and other dirt for a quick cleaning. It is also ideal for use in pots and pans to break apart stuck on food particles. Consider having a second one to clean fruits and vegetables such as potatoes, apples, peppers, tomatoes and a variety of other food items. Keep one in the laundry room to help brush stains out of clothes with a pre-treater and have one available in the car to quickly clean spills.
