I bought this knowing I didnt want to spend alot of money but I also thought $12 wasnt the cheapest either which is what I paid for this. The very first use the handle that connects to the lid broke off! So now when I clean the toilet I am holding onto the white handle that is only about 6" long (my hand is very close to the toilet water). I will be buying a new one but not from Kmart.
I looked all over in store and online for toilet brushes in an oil rubbed bronze finish, we had three bathrooms that needed brushes and I wanted them to match the finish of the fixtures. Most of the ones I found were $20-$25 each and I just didn't want to pay a collective $60-$75 for toilet brushes. This one is a little lighter weight and seems like the quality is less than the $25 ones, but it does it's job and looks much better sitting in the bathroom than a plastic one does. Happy with the purchase.
