Andy’s last afternoon, Friday 20 April 1990, saw Wilson return from holiday and the old threesome were reunited once more. As the programmes of the afternoon (including quiz Eyespy with Christopher Rowe, and Australian sitcom Round The Twist), played out, the Broom Cupboard was slowly stripped of pictures. In the last link of the day Andy was joined by Andi Peters, as well as Roger Finn and Terry Baddoo from Newsround, who all came to say goodbye. Andy and Edd reprised their low-budget till-roll credits, acknowledging many of the stars of Children’s BBC from the last two and a half years, before Andy said goodbye – only to find out he’d been given a false count and had airtime remaining. Children’s BBC’s two production secretaries then appeared with a huge cake which Andy hid behind after saying an emotional goodbye. Aww!
Mason jars have a different type of lid – sort of a plate and a ring. If paint is left in there for ages and gets onto the plate, you can still pop it off and replace the plate – or both the plate and ring. If paint gets stuck to a baby jar lid, you’ll have a hard time twisting off the lid. Or ……. you could just try not to get any paint on any of the lids until you try to open the jar. Hope that helps.

While the purchase price of cotton dust mops is often less than other types, the long-term cost is much higher because of the added cost of dust mop treatment, frequent replacement and the shortened maintenance cycle of the floor.

Cons: Not sure how long the plastic that holds the mop in place will last. Removing the mop to shake it requires a lot of bending and twisting to the plastic holder. This might be the weak link to this mop. Only time will tell. I would of preferred a round mop head. A round mop head and a more effective way to remove the mop from holder would earn this item five stars.
Looped end construction helps eliminate linting and fraying. With no loose ends, mops last longer, withstand laundering, and are far less vulnerable to tangling and deterioration in the laundry. Golden Star’s Infinity Twist yarn takes looped end performance a step further by tightly twisting the looped ends all the way up to the backing through a patented process. This allows dirt to wick up to the backing. This unique yarn construction eliminates crushing and matting down. Performance is greatly enhanced.

After looking for a suitable replacement for this product with no success I opted for the next best option, a rework. I tossed the flimsy plastic casters. Used some old 2×4 scraps to add support to the plastic bottom, attached the bottom to plywood, and added suitable casters. Still somewhat flimsy but hopefully will work long enough to justify the expense.

We used 3-1/2-in.-wide strips of 3/4-in. plywood for the strips because plywood is always straight and never splits—but pine 1x4s also work. Birch plywood was our choice for the strips and shelves, but you can also use less expensive BC plywood. You can rip 12 strips from one 4 x 8-ft. sheet—that’s enough for an average wall. We used four sheets of plywood for our system. For shelf edging, we used 1-1/2-in.-wide strips of solid birch (Photo 6). The total cost for our 20-ft.-long system was about $500, but you could cut that cost in half by skipping the fold-down workbench (Photo 5) and using less-expensive wood and plywood.
After the jar and can organizers come the milk jugs. More so than just about anything else, uniformity in a storage solution is extremely important. Having all of the containers be the same size and shape allows you the greatest storage efficiency. Using the plastic milk jugs, kitty litter containers, and other plastic product containers is smart because you generate a lot of them and they are all of the same size. And they’re free and you’re recycling! [Original post]
Both the dustpan and brush have matching holes to hang the set when it’s not in use, but they’re a little narrow and might not hang on thicker hooks. Without the brush, the Target dustpan can clip to our recommended broom, but it doesn’t fit as securely as the OXO Good Grips Clip-On dustpan and can warp the Casabella’s bristles.
Installing a new broom cupboard in your laundry is an easy project that only needs a few tools. This step-by-step video from Bunnings Warehouse will show you how it’s done, from securing the side and back panels, to attaching the door and installing the shelves.
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.
Ok, so you’re bound to have duct tape in your garage. If you have several rolls of differently colored tapes or different types of tape, you can easily create a dispenser that mounts to the wall and keeps your tapes perfectly organized. A few boards and a hacksaw blade are all you need to create a great dispenser that not only keeps your tape organized, it cuts it the perfect length every time.

The Libman comes with a dustpan—unlike our pick—but the bundled dustpan isn’t nearly as good as the OXO Good Grips Clip-On Dustpan that we recommend. The Libman dustpan is about 2 inches wider than the OXO, but it’s less effective at sweeping because it doesn’t have a rubber lip. The Libman is also shallower, has a shorter ridge, and lacks the OXO’s comfortable handle.

Our pick is wide angle, but most brooms are of a similar size so if you’re having issues with larger areas you might want to look into something like the dual-action dustmop we recommend above. Hope this helps!
While some had mentioned it was no longer available from Amazon Casabella has a readily availabe coupon code to cut the price of the broom in half so even with shipping you come out ahead of the game.
A few strategically placed metal shelves and some plastic totes will really help you to get that garage organized. Plastic totes are really cheap and when you label them, you will always know what goes into them so you can find what you need much faster. Remember to stack things that can stack and use totes for things that cannot. Via: BHG – Budget-Friendly Bins
Rule two: Wash your broom once in while! It seems like common sense that you should wash a tool used to clean up all manner of gross things, but many people never think about it. Once every few months—or whenever your broom gets gunky—take it outside and give it a good shake. Then wash the broom’s head with soap and warm water in a bucket, sink, or even your bathtub, making sure to get deep in all the bristles for a thorough clean. Shake off as much water as you can, then leave the broom to air dry (bristles up!) overnight. Voilà! A clean broom.
Got this for my closet. It matched my room and I just wanted it too hold light things. It does bow someone with weight, but it shows that in the picture. So if you do not look at the picture for more than a glance you may be disappointed like a few other reviewers who were expecting more. But I have put quite a bit in this and it doesn’t seem like it is going to break. I have had it for 2 months.
A very popular series running on Children’s BBC at this time was BRB Internacional’s 26-episode Around The World With Willy Fog. BRB, based in Madrid, had produced the hugely successful Dogtanian series which the BBC had acquired and shown several times previously on Children’s BBC. Willy Fog was based on the novel by Jules Verne and portrayed all the characters as animals. The theme tune was rather catchy and was sung by Andy on more than one occasion, who even trotted out the Spanish version one afternoon. Accompanied by postally distributed songsheets, the interest peaked with the mounting of National Willy Fog Day, on which Andy again sang the opening title music, only this time he did so from one of the Presentation studios, keyed afront of the titles and dressed up in turn as all of the characters.

There was an unexpected appearance for the Broom Cupboard on 16 October 1987 when, as the massive great storm had lashed the South East of England, Television Centre was left without power in all areas except Presentation, which was powered by a standby generator. Newsreader Nicholas Witchell was rushed into the yellow Broom Cupboard, hastily stripped of Children’s BBC identity, to introduce a skeleton news service! Extracts of this broadcast have been added to YouTube in recent months – click the picture opposite to see them.
Opt for custom-designed shelves that run from ceiling to floor to increase storage and display space. Keep in mind the size of the things you want to store when determining shelf width and shelf spacing. Also, if you have kids and pets, consider anchoring tall shelving units and bookcases to wall studs to ensure they don’t topple.
