This is safer too, this is what we disinfected the rodent cages with at my animal shelter. Bleach is too high risk unless you rinse it at least 20 times and have it sit out for a day.

Maybe I'm missing something here, regardless of whether or not the OP is a breeder.. But with such small containers needing such daily maintenance, wouldn't scum and dirt simply not have a chance to build up?

They are a bit small but not as bad as you think and when your housing 50+ fish it's hard to give them all roomy accommodations, their containers are cleaned and renewed every 2 days.

Toothbrush helps to clean cracks that nothing else can reach as well. Just go buy a cheap on or a whole pack and use those for corners. Still white vinegar as a disinfectant is the best for animals.

Are there dangerous chemicals on tooth brushes?

Not if you buy them new. I used them to clean my old betta tanks all the time.
