Keep the bristles from getting crushed. It’s very easy to bend any kind of broom bristles out of shape if there’s any weight on them, as I remembered slightly too late for my Quickie sample. Do not let your broom sit on its bristles. Hang the broom by its handle, or lean it so that the bristles aren’t touching anything.

Scratch Awl / 90 Degree Hook / Complex Hook / Curved Hook. The blade extends throughout the handle and is fully heat treated. The two composite handle is designed for comfort and reduced hand fatigue …

Noisy baking sheets is a familiar noise in most kitchens. Keep your cookie sheets, drying racks and pizza pans in upright storage with a cabinet tray divider that rolls out. Install a second tray divider specifically for cutting boards, cheese trays or pizza peels.

To test how long the cover’s velcro would last, we attached and detached the velcro more than 100 times. After this test, the soft side of the velcro was fuzzy and didn’t grip the hard velcro teeth as tightly as it once did, but it still made a functional seal. We expect the microfiber to wear out before the velcro does.

The O’Cedar Push Broom’s head doesn’t have a pair conventional screw-in holes. Instead, it has what the manufacturer calls a “Maxi-Lok® technology and anti-rotation socket”—a star-shaped socket with a nut on top. The good thing about the Maxi-Lok is that the handle doesn’t come unscrewed during sweeping, and users don’t complain about the handle breaking. But here’s the catch: If the connection does fail, you have to buy a whole new broom—it’s not possible to buy a replacement Maxi-Lok handle, and replacing it with any other handle isn’t going to happen, either.

Spray your floor with a cleaning solution. Grab a spray bottle and fill it with a solution made of warm water and a cleaning product like dish soap, bleach, ammonia, or apple cider vinegar. Then, lightly spray the area of the floor you want to clean.[12]

With the cover on, the frame measures just under an inch tall, so it will fit under most raised furniture to clean out dust bunnies lurking underneath. (The handle and steering mechanism can also lay completely flat, and are shorter than the frame with the cover on.) Our pick is easy to steer, not loose and rattly or stiff and challenging to turn. It stands about 50 inches tall, and the plastic-coated steel handle doesn’t extend like others we tested. That’s a little short, but not so short that it is uncomfortable to use.

I bought 3 pairs of these and installed them in my garden They are rated to hold 15 pounds of dead weight and 2 of them broke under the weight of a normal garden spade/shovel which weighs less than 5 pounds. The fork weld to the screw just broke very easily. Very poor quality. Guess where they are made? China.

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 have to make more sweeps to pick up the same amount of debris as the Casabella. Bottom line: The Casabella is easier to use.

This rack is sturdy, but to be expected of a 4′ piece of metal tubing costing $100. The key to capacity is to support multiple tools on each hook. The sales literature indicates you can hang hooks on the back side. This would be great for wide tools like a push broom. Unfortunately, it isn’t so. The short hooks fit flush to the wall. So there is no way to mount a tool on the hook. The result is a 50% reduction in potential mounting area. It would work, however, if the rack were mounted on exposed studs.

Curlers have also used the SmartBroom to assess their physical conditioning. They can compare their statistics from the beginning of a workout to those at the end, or even after several weeks of training.

These come in three basic types: push, synthetic and corn. Push brooms are made from synthetic bristles arrayed in a wide flat base. They’re used to sweep large areas like the center of indoor rooms, garages, and patios. Rougher bristles allow the push broom to tackle irregular surfaces. Choose a push broom with tacked-in bristles, avoiding brooms that are merely glued together. Look for a metal coupling between the handle and the head; the stresses of sweeping will wear out plastic fittings quickly.

Hang to dry. Microfiber air-dries faster than most materials, and even the fluffiest dust mop heads we tested were fully dry within five to seven hours. If you must use a dryer (you really shouldn’t), then use low heat or tumble dry. Too much heat will melt and destroy your microfiber.
