The test material for dust mops was a gently sifted half teaspoon of flour on a hardwood floor, which simulated a reasonable (but challenging) amount of settled dust. Then we washed each of the 15 dirty dust mop heads individually on warm with a small amount of our recommended detergent, and hung them overnight to dry. We tested all 15 a second time with another half teaspoon of sifted flour and a trip through the wash.
Be sure to align the caster where the screws will go into a plank on the base of the wood crate. If you miss it, the screw might show through. Plus, it’s an extra layer of strength to screw through the plywood and into the wood crate.
The $10 Quickie Professional Large All-Purpose Broom has a wide head, but leaves lots of residue behind when sweeping flour and cat litter. Its long, springy bristles fling debris when sweeping piles into the dustpan.
This sweep set includes a broom and a dustpan, which can be stored together as the broom can be attached with the dustpan for easy and space-effective storage. The dustpan has teeth combs which easily pick up dirt and dust from the bristles of the broom. The broom itself features soft and top quality bristles which work very well in absorbing dust and dirt while cleaning up dirt of any texture or thickness.
Synthetic brooms can be rinsed clean and dry right away. Corn brooms soak up water and stink it they get wet and take forever to dry out. I used to use a corn broom to scrub my garage floor when I hosed it out, but find that the rubber toothed push brooms scrub just as well and always look nice and clean, hanging from their hook.
This low profile but highly effective broom holder allows you to neatly organize your broom closet, garage, kitchen, laundry rooms or basement. WINOMO is equipped with friction grips that clamp down tightly and securely on broom or mop handles. The grips are designed to adjust automatically to the thickness of the handles. The weight of the broom serves to tighten the grip further but release readily when the broom you lift the handle.
The best broom for sweeping your home. This 12 broom is the household size Sweepa Rubber Broom. We also carry rubber brooms in two larger sizes. The bigger ones will be a bit more rugged, and also offer more bristles that are longer, so for certain preferences or usage patterns, the larger tools may be a better choice. To see more information on the other sizes we sell, follow these links: 13 Commercial Rubber Broom & 18 Outdoor Rubber Broom. All three are made from the same materials, and carry the same brand, so it will mostly come down to size requirements as to which you may prefer. The larger heads feature a wider and thicker form factor as well as a slightly thicker thread where it attaches to the pole. All of them have heads made from nearly indestructible rubber, and they all come complete with sturdy steel handles that telescope for adjustment in length. Buy just one, or order more for an even better price. If you already have a pole, or prefer a different style, then you can also just get the broom head by itself to save money.
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.
Brooms are easy to maintain properly, but most people don’t know the basic rules for doing so. Rule one: Don’t store your broom with its weight on the bristles. Hang it up using the storage loop, or prop it against a wall with the handle facing down. Leaving a broom sitting on its bristles causes them to bend, weaken, and even break, which shortens your trusty broom’s lifespan.
Over the past six months, we spent 125 hours researching 215 brooms, dustpans, and dust mops, and testing 36 of them firsthand. We interviewed cleaning experts, surveyed hundreds of readers, worked with a panel of testers to clean two New York City spaces all winter, and even literally counted the bristles of some of the best brooms we found. After narrowing our search down to 14 brooms (half of which have dustpans), 12 dust mops, 15 different dust mop heads, and 10 dustpans (eight of which have brushes), we’ve found the best sweeping tools you can buy.

Still not name calling… Instead of the hollow plastic handle that most brooms come with, this one is commercial grade, and built to last. The thick steel wall makes for a pole that feels high quality when you hold it, and also one that will last for many years without breaking, bending or getting damaged in any way. Besides being plastic, your sad little broom probably also has a handle that is a fixed length. This is great if you are the exact height that the designers had in mind, but most likely you are not. The sturdy pole on our broom is fully telescoping so it can to the perfect length for your exact height, and also become compact for storage or portability.
