A quick primer on sweeping: It is important. The science behind it is much more complicated than people think. The simplified version is that sweeping slightly increases the temperature of the ice while creating micro-scratches on the surface. The result is that players are better able to control for distance and trajectory as the rock travels down the sheet. The sport hinges on precision, so every brush stroke counts.

The $25 Casabella Height Adjustable Broom with Dustpan is the pinnacle of overdesign. Its adjustable pole is awkward and heavy, and the whisk brush that snaps into the broom’s head is loose and falls out. When we unpacked the broom, a ton of bristles fell out. Worst of all, it’s not very good at sweeping.

Of the dust mops we tested, the O-Cedar was by far the most effective dust mop at picking up dust. Each side could pick up a teaspoon of flour, a test many dust mops failed. Using both sides, the O-Cedar picked up a whole tablespoon (3 teaspoons) of flour, a feat no other dust mop we tested could match. The O-Cedar cleaned 500 square feet of my Brooklyn apartment at its dirtiest—twice—before finally needing a wash. For comparison, only one other mop could go this long between cleanings, and the Swiffer Sweeper needed six disposable sheets to clean the same mess.

Metal can rust if not cared for. Plastic is virtually weatherproof. Handles are usually wood. You will most likely have to assemble your purchase, but it is not a difficult job. Look for a good pneumatic tire. Keep the wheelbarrow clean and lubricated and it will last a long time.

I bought ours at a pet show about 12 years ago. I have not bought another broom since. It is the very best broom to use when you have animals especially dogs. It picks up all the hair. We are getting ready to have to replace one of the brooms due to the broom part getting cracked where it goes into the handle itself. It still works great except sometimes it pops off and i have to slide it back on. I highly recommend buying one of these if you have dogs.

A good broom and dustpan is a requirement for any home, but even for a basic household item like this one, finding the perfect choice can be difficult. The more useful a product is, the more options the market has available for sale. To make it easier for you to choose the best option, we put together a list of things to consider when shopping for your next purchase.

I am truly pleased with my small yard tool rack. Since I have a one-car garage and the space is limited, the small yard rack is perfect! It is sturdy and the hooks can be switched around at different angles to accommodate whatever yard tools you own. I am pleased with my purchase and feel very lucky to have found exactly what I needed.

But for decades, there have been competing theories about sweeping. One such debate: Is it more important to sweep faster, with a higher stroke rate, or harder, with greater force applied to the ice? And what about body positioning? Do sweepers generate more power by holding the broom upright or at an angle?

Take cleaning seriously and dress for the job. Avoid loose clothing that will catch on handles or interfere with tools. Comfortable clothing that provides a free range of motion keeps the cleaner on the job longer, and more happily. Washable clothing is a must; a white cotton T-shirt or top will be easiest to keep stain-free.

Now, if you are familiar with how we work and you’re just being rude, you should know that we won’t make a penny off anything sold through many of the retailers above, including Lehman’s & Garret Wade. If you’re going to make comments with zero integrity I’d suggest you refrain, lest you make a bigger fool of yourself.

I really like the Casabella broom and Oxo dustpan which I recently purchased based on your recommendation. One thing that I wish the dustpan had though is grooves / ridges on the edge of the dustpan to clean the bristles of the broom.

On November 18, 2014, M.O.P. released a new EP called Street Certified under Nature Sounds. It is executive produced by DJ Premier and features guest appearances from Maino, Mobb Deep and Busta Rhymes.

The Evriholder is one of the rubber bristled brooms we spoke about in the article above.  It’s a unique broom with 100% natural rubber bristles which do an amazing job at trapping even the finest dirt and dust.  It will easily sweep up dust, hair, dirt & lint from hard surfaces and is perfect for hardwood.  This is a Top Seller on Amazon.com and is priced around $16.00.  Definitely consider getting one of these if you have large hardwood areas in your home.

The broom is perfect for outdoor and indoor use. It easy sweeps the leaves r dust. The bristles are resistant to water, solvents, fungus, acids and bacteria growth. They are perfect for scrubbing the surface.

The bristles are strong and have split tips to make it easier to gather dust and small particles of dirt. They do not seem like they are likely to fray, and the broom head is surrounded by a rubber bumper that prevents damage occurring when cleaning near walls.

Partly to show the indispensableness of this act, it may here be stated, that, in the old Dutch fishery, a mop was used to dash the running line with water; in many other ships, a wooden piggin, or bailer, is set apart for that purpose.
