    Looks like a great way to re-use old toothbrushes, too!

    Simple but usefull. For great result, use hard-type brush

    Great idea! I'm going to use this. I simply have something for the last item (sentence). I'd advise to never use any soap on your chain. Along with water, it is a solvent and solvents displace the lubricate that is supposed to be in the chain. Instead, clean it with clean bicycle chain oil.

    Simply Brilliant. I've been struggling to find something to clean my chain's both sides. Awesome.

    Полная фигня. Чистить чистую цепь. Грязную, в старой смазке и песке так не вычистить.

    I translated your comment and it sounds like it worked well for you. I'm so glad! Thank you!

    I translated my reply back into your language using Google Translator, but I'm not sure how accurate it is:

    Я перевел свой комментарий и это звучит как он работал хорошо для вас.

    Я так рада! Спасибо!

    I took your idea back to the bathroom mirror. Now I can simultaneously brush my teeth front and back; done in half the time :).
