The sponge and brush work as well as the dollar store brush we had on hand, but the ability to stand it upright next to the sink to dry out between uses and the textured end for getting formula residue out of the nipple makes this one my go-to bottle brush.
Warning to others- this brush did go bald fairly quickly (a couple months?) and cleaning up the bristles was a pain, but I think this was because of the way it's used in our house. My husband bends the brush to an angle in order to scrub and I bend the brush back to use it, so it got bent back and forth multiple times a day. We're replacing it with two- a Mom brush and a Dad brush to see if that improves it's longevity
The photos show our sad, naked bristle end (note the way the wires at the bottom have loosened entirely from the bending) and the FANTASTIC nipple washer.
I spent the first couple of months using a less expensive brush. I figured it would be fine. But, I noticed a white haze really starting to build up at the bottom of the bottle. (Breast milk is notorious for being hard to clean!) The bristles on a regular brush can't touch it (especially the corners), no matter how you work it. Sure, the sides of the bottle were getting clean, but not bottom. I sucked it up and got this brush and now because of the sponge on the end, I can get that pesky residue out of the whole bottle. Nice to know it's actually clean before giving it to my baby.
As for other reviews about it falling apart, I've had zero problems with it at all. Another plus (and requirement for me) is that it comes with the base so it can stand up. A brush I previously had purchased had a nipple brush with a suction cup that screwed in and served as the base. I didn't like that because it seemed like a great place to cultivate some germs. Ewe.
I wish I hadn't wasted my money in the first place on something else. Just buy this one and be done with it.
