The word broom derives from the name of certain thorny shrubs (Genista and others) used for sweeping.[1] The name of the shrubs began to be used for the household implement in Late Middle English and gradually replaced the earlier besom during the Early Modern English period. The song Buy Broom Buzzems (by William Purvis 1752–1832) still refers to the broom besom as one type of besom (i.e. a besom made from broom).

Our main floor powder room is finally done!  It was one of those projects that started out as just a “paint the walls” kind of project but, of course, one thing always leads to another! I should have the whole room reveal for you up next week {UPDATE: you can find it HERE}, but today I am going to share this easy DIY storage ladder tutorial…

One source mentions that the United States had 303 broom factories by 1839 and that the number peaked at 1,039 in 1919. Most of these were in the Eastern United States; during the Great Depression in the 1930s, the number of factories declined to 320 in 1939.[6] The state of Oklahoma became a major center for broom production because broom corn grew especially well there, with The Oklahoma Broom Corn Company opening a factory in El Reno in 1906. Faced with competition from imported brooms and synthetic bristles, most of the factories closed by the 1960s.[6]

I used the groupon they have right now for a full synthetic oil change. It’s going for about $45 right now. I think it’s a good deal because they actually know what they’re doing and didn’t try to upsell me. EVERYONE I met was nice and genuine. They offer shuttle service while your car is being worked on. If they find any issues with the car during inspection, they send a virtual fact sheet with pictures and recommendations that are super helpful!

My cleaning lady came back last week and I hugged her and gave her a raise. Although now having tried the O-Cedar Easy-Wring Microfiber Mop I am considering letting my cleaning lady finally retire so I may capitalize on this free child labor.

Raise a ladder to new decorative heights by suspending simple glass jars from the rungs. Use the jars to hold flowers or small collectibles, such as buttons, letters, or shells. Screw hooks into each rung to hold the jars, then wrap wire around the neck of each vessel several times, making a double loop on the back side for hanging. Conceal the wire with baker’s twine for spotlightworthy storage.

Cleaning is incredibly important in the foodservice industry for preventing cross-contamination and passing health inspections , and it’s imperative that you clean your business regularly and thoroughly. But, with so many things to clean in a restaurant, it can be difficult to remember all of the individual cleaning tasks that you need to take care of and how regularly you need to clean your equipment. To lessen the burden, we created this restaurant cleaning checklist that your employees can use to keep track of the cleaning tasks that need to be completed.

Thoroughly mop around the bottom of your toilet, too. This is another area that can attract and hold onto hazardous bacteria. Think about it: you probably brush your teeth right by it, letting saliva fly out, as well as cut your toenails over it, never really knowing where those trimmings go. Since a lot of bathrooms don’t have great ventilation, it’s important to go in with your spin mop and pick up the dirt off the floor that can lead to health problems.

Tuck medium and lightweight stuff onto shelves suspended from the ceiling. The shelves are designed to fit into that unused space above the garage doors (you need 16 in. of clearance to fit a shelf and standard 12-1/2 in. high plastic bins). However, you can adjust the shelf height and put them anywhere. The only limitation is weight. We designed this 4 x 6-ft. shelf to hold about 160 lbs., a load that typical ceiling framing can safely support. It’s best to save the shelf for “deep storage,” using labeled bins with lids, because you’ll need a stepladder to reach stuff. First, find which way the joists run, then plan to hang one shelf support from three adjacent joists (Photo 2). Our joists are 24 in. apart; if yours are spaced at 16 in., skip one intermediate joist. We built ours to hold plastic bins, but if you put loose stuff up there, add 1×4 sides to keep things from falling off. Assemble the 2x4s as shown (Figure A), using 5-in. corner braces ($2 each) and 1/4-in. x 1-in. hex head lag screws (drill pilot holes first).

If your wet mop has a removable head, it can be cleaned in the dishwasher! Place the mop head on the top rack of an otherwise empty dishwasher. Add 1 cup of vinegar to the detergent dispenser and run the dishwasher’s normal cycle. When the cycle is over squeeze out excess water from the mop head and hang it up to dry. Getting a clean mop has never been easier!

Torque settings do two things: they ensure you don’t overtighten and damage the fixing in question and they ensure you don’t under tighten the fixing, which could, in turn, lead to it coming loose. Torque wrenches come in different sizes and have different ‘ranges’. For example, a small 3/8″ drive torque wrench might have a range of 10Nm  to 80Nm which might be great if you’re working on smaller engine components for example but completely useless if you need to torque your wheel nuts, which generally need to be around 120Nm. For that job you’d need a larger, 1/2″ drive torque wrench which might have a range of 60Nm to 200Nm for example. Torque wrenches are available in the old-school needle-dial type, the common ‘click’ type and you can even get digital ones.

We’re huge fans of reciprocating saws, but most of the time these saws are extremely bulky. The new Mac Tools Heavy Duty Geared Air Saw is a cool piece that will likely be replacing our cheap electric sawzall. The typical drawbacks of an air saw is stalling, and the tiny blade that quickly bends, breaks or dulls. The new Mac Tools unit features a gear driven design, which makes it nearly impossible to stall during operation. Our favorite feature is that the saw accepts small air saw blades, as well as standard reciprocating saw blades.
