Default Tire Cleaner?

Ok so I made a tire cleaner. I took a hand cleaning brush and a rubber maid food container. I figured I glue the brush to the container. At first I tried tire glue and let it sit over night, didnt work. So I thought ok plastic on plastic and it needs to be ok in water so I bought apoxy. I let it sit for 48 hours and took it to the track well after one tire it came undone. Any idea of how to build one or how to get plastic to stick to eachother. Thanks

The problem is that even with out water the glue and apoxy will not set hard. And wood screws would leak out.
