The most satisfying DIY projects are those that serve not just a practical purpose, but an aesthetic one as well.

You can tuck away remotes, magazines, kids toys inside. Wheel it out of the way when you need space for a family game of charades.

Once you’ve swept up the most obtrusive crumbs, hairs, and dust clumps, Aarssen suggests doing a wet mop to get rid of the smallest dust particles; she calls it wet dusting. Aarssen likes using a device called the Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop, and points out that Velida manufactures a spray mop, too. Doing that can really eliminate all those little dust and hair particles, she says.

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.

If you want a dustpan that comes with a brush, we recommend the Up & Up Dustpan Set from Target. No panel members preferred the Up & Up set to the OXO Good Grips Clip-On dustpan—which is better at cleaning and more comfortable—but they unanimously agreed it’s the best dustpan-and-brush set we tested. It’s also the least expensive.

I have a Williams Sonomoa broom that is terrific for undercupboards. My cabinets are painted and it is rounded with rounded protected ends. It was not inexpensive, but I am really pleased with it.

Replace any furnishings you removed from the area. Once the floor dries completely, replace any objects you removed earlier. If necessary, clean the bottoms of your chairs, tables, and similar furniture items with a wet paper towel to avoid tracking in dirt and dust.[15]

If you are buying the broom for commercial or office cleaning purposes, then it is essential to teach them how to use broom efficiently. The angled brooms are perfect for cleaning the corners and the edges of the walls. However, a large bristle broom may not be too useful as compared to the flexible and soft bristle broom.

Seams are another reason to try a pair of gloves on. See how the seams feel. Seams can be located inside or outside of the glove. One style is constructed with the seam on the top of the palm, another with seams across the back. Try to imagine how the glove will feel after a full day of wear.

The bristles and broom head are made from 80% recycled materials and are specifically designed to make it beneficial for use in sweeping external areas, like the driveway or garage. The bristles around the outer edge are soft enough to gather fine particles, and the inner ones are stiffer to help collect larger debris.

The pair of polishing slippers I have is microfiber, so basically it’s like wearing a couple of dust-attracting Swiffers on your feet (you could even stick them on your Swiffer broom, as shown above). They’re too thin to wear outdoors. And you wouldn’t want to, you know, mop up a bunch of mud in them, but it’s very satisfying to slide around your apartment and pick up hairs and dust and particles that you know won’t strike your line of vision the next time the light hits the floor. Best of all is the sense of multitasking; just by wearing slippers, and going between the bathroom and the sofa and the kitchen, you’re cleaning.

The Libman’s 12.5-inch sweeping surface is about an inch and a half wider than the Casabella’s, and both heads have similar depth. Our runner-up has 2,184 bristles—that’s about 25 percent fewer than the Casabella—and those bristles are arranged in 78 diagonal groups with about 28 bristles per group. The Libman’s wider head hastens sweeping, but its lower bristle density and less effective arrangement mean you to make more sweeps to pick up the same amount of debris as the Casabella. Bottom line: The Casabella is easier to use.

This broom is one of our favorites for hardwood.  It’s inexpensive yet features an adjustable handle and soft bristles that are extremely gentle on your floors.  Excellent for getting all of those fine particles. This broom also has retractable rubber bristles for catching pet hair.  This broom is great for hard surfaces and low pile carpet/rugs.

Some dustpans are staticky, and this static can make particles jump straight out of your dustpan back onto the floor. Super frustrating! Our advice is to keep using your dustpan—the static will lessen over time the more you use it. We tried wiping down some of the most staticky dustpans we tested with a dryer sheet, but it didn’t make a significant difference.

Run your mop over the floor to wipe up dirty water. Run your mop over each cleaned section 3 to 4 times. If you run the mop over more times than this, you’ll simply start spreading the dirty water around. Between each section, wring out your mop to get rid of the absorbed water.[9]

The O’Cedar Outdoor Power Angler Angle Broom ($16) garnered praise for its ability to get into corners and cracks. That said, it’s light-weight and small, at 1.6 pounds and 60” overall length. Its head is only 10” and light, which makes it hard to push heavier debris or clear large surfaces quickly. It’s fine if you want to clean that little spot on the patio where your no-good-son-in-law throws his cigarette butts when you make him smoke outside, but if you ever want to sweep anything heavier, you’ll be wishing that your bought something else.

We eliminated 12 dust mop heads that failed our flour test or didn’t hold up well in the wash. We tested each of the three finalists again with sifted flour and washed them one more time before long-term testing them all for several months in an apartment with two cats. The long-term tests revealed which dust mop could go the longest between cleanings, which could hold the most dust overall, and which ones held up best over multiple washings.

Sweeping and vacuuming may keep your hardwood floors fairly clean, but you’ll eventually need to mop them to remove stubborn dirt and grime. Though the process may seem intimidating if you’ve never done it before, mopping a floor is actually quite easy and requires very little skill.

I’m assuming you already purchased a broom, but as an FYI for anyone else reading this, I ordered from Amazon on May12th and received it on the 25th, even though it said 2-5 months. Amazon is generally really conservative on their estimates.
