I bought the Casabella because I trust your reviews. It is a great broom, but the head snapped off mine after three weeks! I am so bummed out. I am not exactly Bam Bam so it wasn’t like I was using tons of force when sweeping my floors. Why, oh, why, can’t companies make products built to last!
I’m with you on not throwing dustmop cloths in with clothes… seems like a bad idea to me… I actually have yet to wash my dust mop cloth, because so far, I’ve done a good enough job of getting the biggest and baddest stuff with the regular broom+dustpan, so all I’ve had to do with the dustmop cloth to clean it is shake it out outside… but, eventually, it *will* need washing, and at that point, I think the best bet is to just put it on its own cycle or have a separate washbasin handy (which I don’t have, so I’ll probably just end up hand-washing it in the kitchen sink).
Having purchased and used various Tekton products in my garage, I can truly claim that their products are reliable and durable. In fact, most of my garage’s twenty Tekton products are the 7661 model. I have various tools, such as heavy brooms, pruning sheers, hammers, etc. hanging on these hooks. To be safe, I place the heavier hanging items closer to the garage floor and away from the family’s normal path to the basement door. However, due to Tekton’s wonderful , sturdy products, I have never encountered a safety issue. After 5 years, I have never had a Tekton hook fall off or come out of the wall.

The biggest flaw is a complaint you see popping up in roughly 10 percent of the Amazon reviews (and a few at Home Depot, too): the 60” steel handle snaps off at the head. That may be because the screw-end of the handle isn’t made of steel; it’s plastic—a lighter plastic than the “resin” plastic head. This particular break makes it difficult to replace the handle because you can’t unscrew the portion of the handle that’s still stuck in the broom head. You could probably use pliers to twist it out, as Wirecutter editor Harry Sawyers suggested to me, but you really shouldn’t have to do that to a broom, even if it is cheap. The steel handle has plastic threads, and you could potentially replace this handle with a new one that uses metal threads, and still come out at a lower price than the O’Cedar. Or you could get lucky and buy one that doesn’t unexpectedly break.
Short handles are best for restricted work areas, but they require more leg strength. Depending on your height, you may be doing a lot of bending. Short handles are often thicker and may have a grip on the handle, making them heavier than a longer tool.

Lift the mop and let excess water drip off. Once you’ve given it plenty of time to soak, lift your mop and hold it above the bucket. Mops often absorb way more water than they need, so hold your mop up for 2 to 3 seconds to let excess liquid fall back into the bucket.

Lil’ Fame (Jamal Grinnage) and Billy Danze (Eric Murray) grew up together in the neighborhood of Brownsville, Brooklyn and formed a gang called Mash Out Posse. With a desire to express themselves through rap, they formed a hip-hop group named after their gang Mash Out Posse. Fame always had a gift for making hiphop music, with his talent ranging from being an emcee / producer, to silently being skilled on the turntables . His music became his form of therapy when his older brother was gunned down in his neighborhood 
I figure it’s worth noting that Walmart also has flat brushes (with flagged bristles) which seem to pair decently with the OXO Dust Pan. The one I have is all black and seems as though it’s meant more for garages/work benches than for “around the house” duty, but it seems like it could work just as well in either capacity. It has an ergonomic handle, so it’s not a perfect fit to the dust-pan, handle-wise, and not *all* of the bristles fit perfectly into the pan when brush and pan are stored together, but it works well enough that I’ve stopped storing the dust pan on the broom and instead store it with the bench brush since I always use them together. (I’m part of that 40% camp that prefers to use a dustpan+brush combo to grab the dust piles produced by the broom — using the broom+dustpan to do the job just doesn’t seem to be as accurate/thorough/wieldy.)
Polypropylene Bristles—These are good for indoor and outdoor use (such as sweeping away leaves), and are resistant to water, solvents, acids, oils, fungus, and bacteria growth. They can also be used for scrubbing a surface.
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.
A mop (such as a floor mop) is a mass or bundle of coarse strings or yarn, etc., or a piece of cloth, sponge, or other absorbent material, attached to a pole or stick. It is used to soak up liquid, for cleaning floors and other surfaces, to mop up dust, or for other cleaning purposes. The word (then spelled mappe) is attested in English as early as 1496, but new refinements and variations of mop designs have been introduced, from time to time. For example, American inventor Jacob Howe received U.S. patent #241 for a mop holder in 1837 and Thomas W. Stewart (U.S. patent #499,402) in 1893.
Microfiber mops are constructed of a blend of polyester and polyamide fibers which are “split” and formed into a single fiber. This blend consists of 70-90% polyester that serves as the scrubbing and cleaning fiber and 10–30% polyamide which performs as the holding and quick drying fiber. This blend is usually expressed as a ratio on the label of the mop, e.g. an 80% polyester and 20% polyamide blend would be labeled as 80/20.
The product uses flagged bristles that can make it easier for you to clean a larger surface area. They are also extremely soft and due to their feathered texture, they can grab both dust and dirt effectively.
To clean a wet room, you’ll use a greater number of cleaning products and cleaning tools than when cleaning a dry room. In the cleaning tote, rely on degreasers/all-purpose cleaners to cut through oily dirt and dissolve dried-on stains. Pair a degreasing spray with a good supply of fresh cleaning cloths; using a fresh cloth makes sure you remove the loosened soil, not just spread it about in a more even layer. To save money and go green, stock cleaning totes with homemade window cleaner, white vinegar and baking soda for sparkling kitchens and bathrooms.

Storage. Being able to conveniently store a broom can be very handy and can prevent accidents from the broom falling over and hitting other items. Consider whether the broom comprises a hanging loop at the tip of the handle, which can be used to hang it against a wall where it will be out of the way.

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.

Each storage container features an array of protective features to ensure your items are secured safely and can be transported without fear of damage or tampering. While plastic storage containers might keep out dust and deter water, specialized equipment and valuables require significantly more security. Consider storage containers that are watertight, crush-proof or even corrosion-proof and chemical-resistant. Look for one with a padded interior that can be easily customized by tearing the perforated padding. If necessary, consider additional features like padlocks or keyed locks.
