First, move in a rolling cart large enough to handle your files, office supplies, and reference materials. Then, build an office around it by outfitting nearby walls with pocket organizers, corkboards, mesh storage baskets, and hook racks. Stretch cart space with bins, baskets, and binders that organize everything from file folders and photos to electronics.
Our pick is $6 from Amazon, where it has a 4.3-star rating and 45 user reviews. Most complaints are from people who warped the dustpan’s rubber lip storing it improperly or who bought the dustpan without making sure it clips to their broom. (We checked many times, and it fits on the Casabella as securely as our runner-up fits with its bundled dustpan.)
To test how long the cover’s velcro would last, we attached and detached the velcro more than 100 times. After this test, the soft side of the velcro was fuzzy and didn’t grip the hard velcro teeth as tightly as it once did, but it still made a functional seal. We expect the microfiber to wear out before the velcro does.
I really like this mop, and I would recommend it to a friend. I put it to use shortly after it arrived. Not only does it dust hard floors and baseboards beautifully, but I used it to dust my kitchen cabinet exteriors. It gets into crevices very well. It worked great on dusting walls as part of Fall cleaning. Cleaned the decorative molding at the top of the walls perfectly. Picks up dust, lint, hair, etc and really holds on. The black flexible dusthead holder makes dusting so easy! Only issues I had were that the handle kept starting to unscrew from the flexible black dusthead holder so I kept having to make a point of tightening it. Then I went outside to give it a good shaking — and all at once the dusthead flew off the flexible holder and the mop handle unscrewed from the same holder and both pieces went flying. Rather surprised me! So, I suggest removing the dusthead from the flexible holder and shaking out the dusthead by itself not attached to anything instead of while it’s attached to the mop or the flexible black holder, especially if you plan to shake it out from an upstairs window. Since I also purchased a second dusthead, I washed the one I was using after shaking it out. It washed beautifully; I washed it in cold water, gentle cycle and mild liquid detergent and have it hanging to dry. So even with the issues of the mop handle unscrewing and having to remove the dusthead from the flexible black holder to shake it out, I’m giving it 5 stars because it is so useful.
On a pair of pencil marks between two sets of handles, drill pilot holes (be sure to switch to a smaller bit first) for the spring-clip fasteners, and twist in the screws. Now find a nice spot for your rack, install it using the proper hanging hardware for the wall type, and start organizing your garden tools.
Our pick has a comfortable black rubber grip made from the same thermoplastic rubber as the red lip and the rubber fingers that clip onto different-sized broom handles. It was the only dustpan we tested with a comfortable handle, the rest were varying degrees of awkward to hold. The end of the OXO’s handle has a hole to hang the dustpan when it’s not clipped to your broom.
Clamp the board to your bench with at least 2 in. overhanging along the length. Center a 2-in. hole saw over each mark and drill a hole. The saw will overlap the edge of the board, creating a slot for the handles. If you want to paint or finish the rack board, now is the time to do it.

After looking for a suitable replacement for this product with no success I opted for the next best option, a rework. I tossed the flimsy plastic casters. Used some old 2×4 scraps to add support to the plastic bottom, attached the bottom to plywood, and added suitable casters. Still somewhat flimsy but hopefully will work long enough to justify the expense.

Don’t leave your tool collection piled in a drawer or on a shelf. Designate a spot for each item in one of our tool chests and boxes, so you can spend less time searching for specific tools and more time working on your projects. Storage racks and containers are also great options to organize your tools and hardware. Storing your equipment on freestanding shelving units and components will make them more visible and easily accessible. Keep your tools and equipment off the ground with our wall-mounted storage systems. Work supports and workbenches can provide a place for you to work on your projects and store your tools once you’re done for the day. Protect your tools and equipment from dust and moisture by storing them in a garage cabinet system.
The synthetic fibers are also not effected by moisture. Unlike cotton, they are much lighter to push regardless of humidity or presence of liquid. The plastic fibers and their clean-ability cause synthetic fiber dust mops to last much longer.

During Phillip’s time on Children’s BBC there were various features in addition to the usual programme news, trails and schedule information. These included Class of 86, for which viewers were invited to send in a photograph of their school class, and Downtown, which comprised photographs of viewers and their friends, snapped in town. The Tony Hatch song of the same name, sung by Petula Clark, was played whilst the pictures were shown, and a rebirth of interest in the track (the whole idea inspired by the high chart position of Tom Jones’ sixties’ hit It’s Not Unusual) led to a re-release.
The solution is to create a framework of horizontal wood strips and inexpensive shelf standards. It can hold almost any arrangement of shelving and hooks, at any point on the wall, and it’s easy to rearrange.
