Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0115587A1] The invention relates to a brush, especially a toilet brush, comprising a brush head (10) and a brush head holder (20, 30, 40, 60). Said brush head (10) can be detachably mounted on the brush head holder (20, 30), especially in such a way that the two interlock. According to the invention, the brush head (10) can be slid onto the brush head holder (20, 30, 40, 60) with a friction fit. It is therefore possible to exchange a used brush head for a new, germ-free replacement. This not only avoids the unattractive appearance that conventional brushes acquire after repeated use but also prevents health risks to the user.
