If you want to set your kids on the path to a lifetime of cleanliness, the Little Helper Broom Set isn’t so much a toy as it is a fully-functional broom and dustpan masquerading as a plaything. You can use it to get them to help with chores, or just to tidy up their rooms.
For this reason, you want a broom that is built to last, one that will handle day-to-day usage without showing any signs of damage in the long run. To give you a better idea of what to look for, we put together a list of the ten best brooms money can buy.
All ready to buy the O-Cedar Dual-Action Microfiber Flip Mop and noticed that it’s $13 at Home Depot http://www.homedepot.com/p/O-Cedar-Dual-Action-Microfiber-Flip-Mop-143163/204412159. Do you guys at Wirecutter get referral codes for HD?
Nothing beats kicking back near the glow of your backyard fire pit. It’s the Paul Bunyan-style log-splitting that’s a drag. You can split logs up to 20 inches long and 10 inches in diameter like butter with this 5-ton machine. It features a 15 amp induction motor and will run on regular household current, eliminating the need for fuel and the fumes that come with it. The compact machine can be easily moved by one person and comes with a six foot extension cord for added convenience. Two-handed operation keeps your hands clear of danger, requiring you to initiate the splitting away from the blade. It’s no hardcore 27-ton hydraulic splitter, but it’s also not going to cost you three times as much.
In our survey, we found that most people want a handheld dustpan, not a stand-up dustpan. Sixty percent preferred to use a broom to sweep debris directly into the dustpan—no brush needed. Among those who did want a brush, most like a long, flat brush instead of a whisk brush. Cleaning expert Leslie Reichert agrees, and told us she’d “never had much luck with a whisk brush teamed with a dustpan” and prefers “a very soft, thick brush.” Good brush bristles have a lot in common with brooms: They should be synthetic, flagged, and soft enough to grab dust but not floppy enough to fling it around.

In February 2008, M.O.P. left G-Unit Records, due to creative differences. Billy and Fame released their next album, The Foundation, in 2009 on E1 Music. The album featured production from DJ Premier, Statik Selektah, The Alchemist, and Jake One, and guest appearances from Heltah Skeltah, Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Beanie Sigel, Styles P and Redman. The first single from the album, Blow the Horns featuring Busta Rhymes, and another track called Street Life, which is a collaboration with dancehall artist Demarco, was released on the internet.
Anyone in Canada find anything similar here? Bed, Bath & Beyond sells Casabella but not this broom. O’Cedar is supposed to be the same as Vileda but they don’t seem to carry a dust mop like this. Help!
I bought 3 pairs of these and installed them in my garden shed. 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.
I have fourteen items hanging from one of these and I could hang a couple more from the back if I bought extra hooks. You could hang more if you put hookeyes in the handles of tools with wooden handles and hung them right-side-up. You could also hang more items if you got some more of the really long hooks–they only send one with the kit.

I love my Rubber Broom. I have so many pet hairs with 2 dogs and 4 cats. I have used it with the handle to remove the gaits from the rug, gather them together on the floor, clean the dust off the ceiling fan and ceiling and walls. I take the pole off to use the broom end to remove hairs from the furniture and cat tower. When the carpet cleaner came to clean carpet and couch, he vacuumed the pillows but couldn’t get the hairs off, so I brought out the broom end and he was so impressed that I gave hI’m the invoice copy and he said he would order 2 for the cleaning business. Suggestions for the product would be a sturdier pole and connection and add a second broom attachment that is less wide and thus easier to manuver in small spaces than the wide broom and has one side that stick’s out in a point to get in the furniture cracks and corners. It is overall a great and useful product.
Cleanup in aisle five! This petite (39-inch-tall) take on pro tools—with teeth that comb dust from broom bristles—makes quick work of small messes, then snaps tight for storage. Note: The Good Grips handheld whisk broom– and-dustpan set (not shown) was also a winner.
KITCHENER, Ontario — Andrew Flemming and Geoff Fowler tinkered for months in their spare time. They used soldering irons. They printed three-dimensional models in their basements. They brainstormed over beers in this small city about 60 miles west of Toronto, where they kept their project quiet.
To properly hold a mop, first grab the end of the mop handle with your dominant hand. Then, place your non-dominant hand anywhere on the mop handle and slide it up and down until you find a comfortable position. While mopping, make sure to keep your back straight to avoid unwanted strain.
The shipping charge on the casabella website is just frankly insulting given the broom price. I know it’s less than people have had to pay in total historically given the abysmal stocking of this broom, but I just can’t make myself accept the violation, lol.
Matt Hamilton, the American curler, said he discovered that he was able to generate greater force by holding the broom more upright. Kennedy, the Canadian curler, said he learned that pressure was more important than stroke rate. So now he sacrifices speed for the sake of power.
Even though a hardwood floor broom isn’t going to damage your floor finish, picking the right one is essential, as not just any old broom will do the job. The finish you have on your floors will determine which broom is best suited to clean it carefully and thoroughly. However, a general rule of thumb is to always select a hardwood broom with the softest bristle possible. This will ensure that you don’t scratch or damage the finish.
While brooms nowadays all work the same way and use pretty much the same materials, the dustpan is quite another matter. Depending on the manufacturer it can be larger, allowing you for more sweeping before having to empty it. It can also come with nifty features such as teeth that can remove dirt and dust from broom bristles.
Problem Solvers yard tools are guaranteed to make garden chores easier. Look here for log carts, garden wagons, composters, leaf haulers, garden tools, pine cone pickup tools, multipurpose tubs, pot movers, raised garden beds and other yard tools designed to provide a helping hand so you can get your garden chores done quicker and more efficiently.
The $13 O-Cedar Dual-Action Microfiber Flip Mop has a wide, microfiber and synthetic blend chenille head that can hold more dirt than any dust mop we tested. It was the only dust mop we tested that could pick up an entire tablespoon of spilled flour, and it could cover more area than any other dust mop before needing a wash—we needed six Swiffer sheets to clean the equivalent square footage (and those weren’t as effective, either). It’s big enough to work quickly, yet nimble enough to get dust from corners, and its refill covers are affordable and durable.
The best broom needs angled bristles that can reach into corners and beneath furniture, as well as a storage loop for hanging it on the wall—because you should never store one resting on its bristles. We eliminated brooms that were too short, came with an awkward upright dustpan, were difficult to find from a reputable retailer, or were too expensive. The best broom we found costs only $10; you don’t need to pay much for something great.
Harper brooms: made in the USA, very soft, densely packed, flagged bristles, wide head. Takes the place of a dust mop for me. Available at independent hardware stores like Ace, Do It Best, True Value, etc. More expensive but last a long time and have replaceable, wooden heads. Quality and performance, the best brooms I’ve used.
Broom bristle fibers can also be flagged or unflagged—flagged broom fibers have split ends like frizzy hair. Their fine tips are very good for sweeping up dust, but terrible for thicker, heavier materials—aka, the larger debris you need an outdoor broom to be able to move. The best outdoor brooms at least have unflagged fibers, and ideally, a combination of flagged and unflagged. Out of our sample, only three brooms—the O’Cedar 24” push broom (our top pick), the Quickie (budget pick), and the Libman 24″ Multi-Surface Heavy Duty Push Broom—had this mix of flagged fibers and unflagged fibers, which can grab fine particles and manage coarse pushing as well.
Greenco features a nice design and a great performance allowing you to do more than just organize your brooms and mops.

Matt Hamilton, a member of the United States men’s team, overhauled his sweeping technique after training with a SmartBroom. Curlers from countries as far afield as China, Denmark and Switzerland have leaned on it in their preparation for the Olympics. In all, Will Hamilton, who is not related to Matt Hamilton, said he had sold SmartBrooms to eight of the 13 national curling federations sending teams to Pyeongchang.
It may look like a small push broom, but you will get the best results if you pull it towards you like a traditional one. On most occasions, you will simply sweep like normal, and the Sweepa will do the rest. As stated above, each time you pull the broom towards you, a strong static charge is built up. This basically pulls the dirt and hair along with the broom, and also prevents it from flying away. The solid wall of rubber that is formed by the flexible bristles as you sweep will completely remove anything in it’s path. Once you are done sweeping, just give the broom a couple of taps on the floor to release the charge, allowing you to move the debris into a dust pan, or other receptacle.
Yep and per our expert- Yes and that’s a good thing! You want your broom to grab the pet hairs instead of them flying all over the place. When you feel like your broom is too full of pet hair, give it a quick wash in your sink or bathtub.
