Is there a better grout brush? Got a great idea for this brush! Are you an Inventor?

This is what i'm using now
When I saw this post, I couldn't help myself by adding into the comment about the stand-up "blue Carlisle brush"...This to me is the best brush for tile and grout cleaning due to the bristle design and long usage, however I have a better idea, and I am hoping someone sees this post so they may use this brush in creating a "stand-up pole" metal bristle brush...Like the ones at Harbor Freight (hand held)...I want someone to make the stand up pole version of the Carlisle brush in not plastic bristles, but steel wire bristles in same form...This would be ideal for kitchens and or heavily soiled grout lines, and for your color sealing people, it would etch the grout perfectly for color seal application...

I gave you the idea inventors...Pay me 1% for the invention...Go make millions...

    Seriously, steel bristles to clean grout? Sounds like a great way to cut little ugly grooves on grout lines. Only time I have ever needed something that abrasive on grout is when stripping color seal or urethane that is multi coats and old

    Have you ever cleaned dirty grout? This tool would work wonders in kitchen areas and heavily traveled areas like hallways, entrances from garages, and more. Not bristles that are hard, but soft wire brushes, approximately the same consistency as the Carlisle brush...Brush could also work for preparation of laying color sealer (etching)...

    We put these brushes on there edges to get into 1/4" (OR MORE) grout lines in difficult areas...Not all areas require this technique...But a stand up pole version would be ideal...These steel wire grout brushes are about 5/8" wide...but if chiseled like the Carlisle...It will get into the grout line beautifully...and in turn saving your back and improving your speed...This brush would be harsh on the un sanded grout, but I need this brush for the sanded grout...
