If you want to spend a little less, the Quickie 00528 18-Inch Bulldozer Push Broom Indoor/Outdoor ($14 + $10 shipping, or $10 at Home Depot) is one of the more capable tools out there—in fact, on fine sand, wet leaves, and stray pine needles, it was the best sweeper in our test. It’s on the narrow side, so it’s light and maneuverable, but it’s a little slower than the O’Cedar when covering a lot of ground. Both tools have a combination of stiff and soft synthetic bristles with two types of tips, which make them equally great for fine particles and bigger debris, wet or dry. The Quickie was almost our top choice for this guide, but there are a few too many users reporting its handle breaking for us to stand behind it as the main pick.

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.

When selecting garden tools, make sure you get the right tool for the job, but don’t stop there. Part of selecting any tool is the How does it feel in my hand? test. When choosing, try to imagine how the tool will feel after a few hours of use. Remember, as the size of the tool increases, the weight of the tool also increases. Larger tools are efficient, just remember to choose one that won’t wear you out too quickly.

This premier broom from Rubbermaid stands out through its highly ergonomic construction, one that recommends it for any type of job. It isn’t just suitable for household usage either, much thanks to its flexible yet very sturdy design. A sturdy polypropylene with flagged bristles traps makes it a very efficient cleaner. Interestingly enough, this broom can be used on both dry and wet floors as it is stain and odor resistant.

In total, the Casabella is 53 inches tall. This may be too short for some, but our tallest panel member—who’s 6-feet, 1-inch tall—had no trouble with our pick’s height. Our runner-up is only an inch taller, but is effectively 3 inches taller because of the Casabella’s 2-inch extended hanging loop.

Bought 4 of these and 2 are stuffed with garden tools in the new shed. They need anchoring to a wall or stud to support top heavy tools and the tools have to go through both openings in the top and bottom grids. They are a great value for their intended use.

It’s well made, is quite sturdy–it hangs by four really long screws in predrilled holes in two studs–and looks good. The only thing I would quibble about is that it takes a while to get everything level and to drill the four holes with an electric drill before installing it. But it was easy enough. Just make sure you have the center of the stud. Mine are exposed so it was a no brainer (I heard that!). And the holes really do have to be drilled with a 3/16 drill. Any more and the attachment will lose strength. Any less and you will break your hand putting the screws in.

Your top pick, the Casabella Wayclean Wide Angle Broom, seems to have been discontinued. I read the whole article and was all set to make my purchase but this broom can’t be had for less than $30 and that’s too much for a broom. Total bummer/waste of time. Great review though, keep it up guys.

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.

The most satisfying DIY projects are those that serve not just a practical purpose, but an aesthetic one as well. Here’s a DIY storage ottoman– or storage coffee table– that’s totally practical, and it’s visually appealing.  It’s made from a couple wooden crates, some plywood and casters. You can tuck away remotes, magazines, kids toys inside. Wheel it out of the way when you need space for a family game of charades.

After using the above criteria to narrow down dozens of products from our three main categories, we called in and tested 14 brooms (seven of which have dustpans), 12 dust mops, 15 different dust mop heads, and 10 dustpans (eight of which come with a brush). Testing started in the fall of 2014 and, hundreds of hours later, is still ongoing as of spring 2015. We’re ready to pick our favorites, but will continue testing these picks for months to come.

I like this idea for the ladder. Organize your garage in one morning. Ladders low on walls. Attach BC plywood on wall (one side smooth), hang wire baskets with mirror support hooks, hang bikes from a large hook set at a downward angle.

This broom will get your floors cleaner than ever, and you will love it because it will take you less time and less effort to do it. As you sweep with this rubber broom, the pliable bristles will conform to the surface you are cleaning and build a strong static charge. A solid wall of sweeping rubber will remove all dirt in a single pass, and the static charge will help to pull the dirt along as well as keep things like fur and hair from flying away. This makes your job easier because it will take less sweeping to get the job done in the first place, and less RE-sweeping to keep it piled long enough to pick it up. This rubber broom is safe for use on any hard floor, and will never harm delicate surfaces like hardwood or natural stone. When sweeping tile and concrete, the flexible and sturdy bristles will reach down to clean the cracks and grout as you sweep, so nothing is left behind, and you don’t need to spend extra time or use special maneuvers to accomplish it. This is the best broom you will ever use, so don’t be fooled by cheap imitations. Thanks to superior features, better materials and more durable construction, this broom will outperform and outlast any similar looking one you may find.

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.

In 1996, M.O.P. released their second effort, Firing Squad. Hoping for better promotion, they signed with Relativity Records. Changing record labels and production duties to include Gang Starr’s DJ Premier and Lil’ Fame himself, the group still kept their energetic style, and gained a slightly larger following this time round. In 1998 M.O.P. released the Handle Ur Bizness EP, which was soon followed by the album First Family 4 Life. Working with the same formula, again with a heavy percentage of the record produced by DJ Premier and Lil’ Fame, the album featured guest appearances by Guru of Gang Starr, Treach of Naughty by Nature, OC of Diggin’ in the Crates Crew and Jay-Z. The album had the dubious distinction of being the most stolen album from New York City’s HMV stores in 1998.[6]

The cleaner does not have to have a bucket of water with him/her when sweeping the floor, but simply carries an appropriate number of mops. This means the weight of the equipment can often be kept lower.

The Minds On Physics Internet Modules use the Shockwave plug-in. Support for Shockwave by most modern browsers is diminishing. But fear not! The Minds On Physics program has now been completely converted to a mobile app that works on iOS and Android phones and tablets, on Mac computers, and on Chromebooks. The most promising means of doing MOPs at this time may be through the use of the mobile app on an iOS device, an Android device, a Mac, or a Chromebook.

Mop no more than once a week. If your floors get particularly dirty thanks to children, pets, or lots of foot traffic, you may need to mop them every week. However, for most houses, try to mop your hardwood floors around twice a month.[1]

You should buy a broom holder depending on the number and possibly the weight of the cleaning tools and other utilities you need to store. While most brands can hold up to 11 tools, some unique holder can store up to 30 or even 50 tools at the same time. You also need to be careful about the maximum carrying capacity per ball roll or friction grip so you do not overburden your holder and cause it to break.

In the comments you see that a representative of Tekton responded to my issues in my review and offered a replacement for the failed units without any paperwork or anything. All I did was to email her and in a few days I had the replacements. The shipping alone had to cost more than the product retail. Yes the product is weak, but the manufacturer really stepped up to customer support in a way seldom found today!

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.

Angled synthetic brooms are lightweight and work well to clean near baseboards, behind furniture and in corners. Use them indoors, as their lighter weight makes them impractical for heavier outdoor jobs. Store synthetic brooms head-up to avoid bending the bristles.
