This soft cotton dust mop is a hardwood broom on steroids. This is the same type of broom you see used on wooden basketball floors, gyms etc, but scaled down for residential use. If you have large, open hardwood floor areas in your family & living spaces, this is the soft dust broom you will want to make quick work of nearly all debris. The 24″ cotton mop head is removable for cleaning and the handle is telescoping from 42″ to 72″. Priced around $40, this is a great cleaning investment.
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.
Our runner-up has a 45.5-inch green pole and an 8.5-inch head, which adds up to a 54-inch-tall broom. As mentioned in the section above, the Libman is only an inch taller than the Casabella, but it’s effectively 3 inches taller because the Casabella’s 2-inch storage loop extends off the broom’s end rather than being built into the handle. It’s not a huge difference, but if our pick is a little short for you, the Libman may be a better option. Like the Casabella, the Libman is well-made and doesn’t rattle or flex during ordinary use (or vigorous shaking).
Make light work of cleaning with a quality mop and bucket. Choose standard buckets, perfect for transferring large amounts of water, or opt for a mop bucket with wringer and easy pour spout, ideal for blitzing the hard surface floors throughout your home. Whether you dread cleaning or thrive on it, our range of mops will certainly help you get the job done. A sponge mop takes the stress out of cleaning by lifting and locking in stubborn dirt, and a spray mop makes cleaning an effortless task. Our mops and buckets will help make your kitchen floor sparkle!
The O’Cedar’s head is about twice as wide as a Swiffer’s. The cloth measures 17.5 inches across in the front, widens to 19 inches in the back, and is 5.5 inches deep. The Swiffer measures 10 inches wide by 4.5 inches deep, so it has much less surface area—even without counting our pick’s second side. Our pick’s double-sidedness also makes it better at reaching into corners where dust tends to gather. Some other dust mops we tested struggled to get dust out of tight corners, especially if it was clinging to the wall or above the floor’s surface.
Step one: Get a good broom, and make sure it’s clean and in nice shape. “The idea is the bristles should be one-directional,” she says. In other words, if your broom’s bristles are all askew, like a porcupine on a bad hair day, consider investing in a new sweeper. Maker recommends the O-Cedar Angler Angle Broom, because she likes its quality, shape, and that its head can be unscrewed and removed for easier cleaning.
What’s the pedigree of a great dust cloth? It’s white, and it’s made of 100 percent cotton. Cotton is absorbent, trapping dust instead of scattering it, and it won’t scratch fine furniture. White dust cloths show the dirt as you work and are washable, reusable and may be bleached. For an eco-friendly, frugal touch, recycle and repurpose old-fashioned unfolded diapers, squares of terry toweling or stained damask napkins as durable dust cloths.
The first SmartBroom was used by Canada before the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. But at the request of Curling Canada, the country’s national curling federation, Hamilton and his partners agreed not to sell SmartBrooms to other consumers until after the Olympics. Fowler called it a “polite agreement” rooted in relationships with Curling Canada officials.
This is the traditional garden standby. Shoveling material in and out is easy. Wheelbarrows tip up for easy unloading. The single-wheel variety requires some strength and sense of balance (let a load of dirt tip over sideways in the lawn and you will know what I mean). A heavy-duty two wheel model is available. Wheelbarrows are manufactured in homeowner and contractor grades. Contractor versions generally have a heavier duty tray support and a thicker gauge tray. Wheelbarrow trays are metal or plastic.
Hmm I haven’t found this to be even remotely an issue. You’re going to have a pile similar to that of a broom since the O’Cedar won’t pick up every single particle of larger dirt. I get everything into one pile, lift up, give a quick thrust/jiggle towards the pile on the floor, and then pick up whatever is left with a paper towel. To each their own, though 🙂

If you are buying the broom for commercial or office cleaning purposes, then it is essential to teach them how to use broom efficiently. The angled brooms are perfect for cleaning the corners and the edges of the walls. However, a large bristle broom may not be too useful as compared to the flexible and soft bristle broom.

Size. The length of the broom handle must be considered in accordance with your height as it will dictate how comfortable it is to use. The length of the bristles will also need to be a consideration and will help you determine how useful it will be in different situations.
If you want a dustpan-and-brush set—to clean small messes, or if you don’t like using a big broom to sweep into a dustpan—we recommend the Target Up & Up Dustpan Set. Going by the set’s dustpan alone, none of our panel members liked it better than the OXO dustpan because it’s narrower, its lip leaves more dust behind, and it isn’t as comfortable to hold. It was, however, part of the best of eight brush-and-dustpan sets we tested, and its brush was the only one with flagged bristles, which really help capture dust.
It’s OK if your broom gets wet, and in fact you should periodically clean its bristles with soapy water; a bit of laundry soap and hot water works well. It’s not OK if your broom stays wet, however. Bristles left wet for too long can curl or unravel, and can also experience a buildup of mold, mildew, or bacteria. Dry the bristles with a hairdryer on low, or simply leave the broom in a sunny, airy location with its bristles aiming down so the water can both drip and evaporate away.
A stand-alone dustpan should clip to your broom for storage, and be sturdy enough not to bend a lot or break under moderate pressure. A comfortable grip is a nice perk, and a good dustpan set should have a hole for hanging on a hook. Dustpans shouldn’t be expensive; our survey told us most people want to spend $6 on a dustpan and up to $12 for a dustpan/brush combo set.
No. We are not calling you names. The rubber head on this powerful broom is the main thing that makes it work so well. Each bristle is very sturdy when compared to nylon or other traditional types so they wont lose shape, wear down, hold dirt, or generally not work like those ones will. Each time you pull back on this tool, the rubber bristles will form a solid wall to collect dirt and remove messes. Even teeny tiny crumbs will not slip under sneak through, and to make sure lighter stuff doesn’t fly away as you work, it will also build a static charge. This charge will eliminate the fly away effect that is common when sweeping hair and other fine particles in order to make that difficult stuff just as easy to sweep as anything else. On the back side of the head, you also have a flexible and efficient squeegee blade. As if the bristles alone were not enough to embarrass the broom sitting in your closet now, this added convenience really makes this a powerful tool. If the kids spill milk, or you just need to dry the floor after mopping, this blade will allow you to dry large areas quickly, and move any left over water into a compact area where it can be absorbed. It is super handy in the kitchen, but also nice when your basement floods, or you need to clean windows that are hard to reach.
The $15 OXO Good Grips Angled Broom is a good broom and made it into our top four. However, our panel decided that its bristles are too soft, the head is thinner and less dense than our pick, and it flings too much debris to recommend.
The kitchen is a pretty dirty place. We prepare all of our meals there, pets eat near the floor, and it is the prime hangout spot in most homes. For this reason, the floor gets pretty tore up in almost every instance. If you are using a regular broom to get it clean then you are working too hard. Save yourself incredible amounts of effort, and cut the time it takes in half. Your floor will be cleaner, and you will spend less time and energy to get it that way. You don’t need to struggle to sweep up any of those annoying messes, you just need a better tool. You can definitely find a broom for a cheaper price if you look at big box stores locally, but you will replace it sooner, and each time you use it, you will be expending extra energy and frustrating yourself for no reason. The next time you are looking to replace your current broom, try this one and you won’t be sorry. It is definitely the best broom for your kitchen, but it also works great on any other hard flooring surface, and it can even clean pet hair, or longer human hair, out of carpeting. It is tough enough to work outside on concrete without wearing down, yet gentle enough to be safe for expensive hardwood flooring too. Discover a faster and easier way to sweep, and have a high quality tool that will save you money because it lasts for years.
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.
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.

There’s no universal answer to how long microfiber lasts—that depends on how well it’s cared for, how often it’s washed, how dirty it gets, and how well-made it is to begin with. Manufacturers estimate their microfiber mop heads will survive anywhere from 100 to 500 washes. (How often you need to wash it will vary; once every two weeks worked for us.) Both experts say to pay careful attention to how well your dust mop cleans. When it stops picking up dust—or if it falls apart entirely—it’s time to buy a new cloth.
I have a Sweepa broom that is at least 25years old I love it. it is by far the best broom I have ever used.

But the head’s attachment to the handle is what really sets this broom apart—it’s a unique, beefy fastener that won’t spin out of its socket or break off mid-sweep—a complaint you often see in competitor’s brooms. The 24” head is wide enough to clear great swaths of driveway, but the broom easily pivots to pursue errant leaves and candy wrappers. Its main drawback? You can’t replace the handle, so if that tough connection does fail, you’ll have to toss the whole thing out. We didn’t find a perfect broom, but this one came as close as any we tested.
