A lambswool duster with a long handle extends your reach and is useful for dusting delicate, detailed items. Long wool fibers attract and hold fine dust until you release it outside by twirling the wand firmly between your palms.
Hamilton was coaching a junior women’s team six years ago and wanted to help his sweepers improve their technique. But he knew there was no clear way to assess how well they were actually doing. It was all guesswork.
The bristles and broom head are made from 80% recycled materials and are specifically designed to make it beneficial for use in sweeping external areas, like the driveway or garage. The bristles around the outer edge are soft enough to gather fine particles, and the inner ones are stiffer to help collect larger debris.
Matt Hamilton, a member of the United States men’s team, overhauled his sweeping technique after training with a SmartBroom. Curlers from countries as far afield as China, Denmark and Switzerland have leaned on it in their preparation for the Olympics. In all, Will Hamilton, who is not related to Matt Hamilton, said he had sold SmartBrooms to eight of the 13 national curling federations sending teams to Pyeongchang.

Amazon reviewers say the O’Cedar push broom feels “solid,” “strong,” and “well-built,” and they like its performance on concrete, garage floors, driveways, decks—pretty much everything. Several reviewers like how it clears light snow; another reviewer says it’s comfortable for use by a 6’4” man. In my testing, I found that sweeping felt light, effortless, and soft, unlike the Quickie broom, our budget pick, which feels bouncy and stiff.

When I set out to find reviews of outdoor brooms, I found… nothing. None of the major “shelter” sites or blogs, or Consumer Reports, or Popular Mechanics, or This Old House has ever published a piece on outdoor brooms. I tried to find experts and called up organizations that specialize in clean outdoor spaces: New York’s Central Park Conservancy, the City of Philadelphia, Disney World, The Church of Latter Day Saints’ Temple Square maintenance staff, the winners of the Brooklyn’s Greenest Block contest, the Boy Scouts of America, Miami’s Townhouse Center sponsor of the “Best Urban Block” contest… no one wanted to talk about brooms. Even the staff of Broom, Brush and Mop magazine didn’t get back to me. The professionals all use leaf blowers or power sweepers, and the amateurs don’t buy a large enough variety of brooms to see any difference. It was immensely frustrating, and I was left with the brooms I’d selected via a process of elimination.
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.
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).
At first look, I wondered what would one do with a rubber broom? I’ve actually found it to be useful for many things both inside and out. For example, raking pine needles off the roof. I love this broom!!!
Well…That’s easy. The best broom for picking up pet hair and human hair is also the best at sweeping everything else too. The Sweepa Rubber Broom makes it easy to sweep up any kind of debris from any hard surface, and it works especially well for hair. Most traditional brooms produce less than adequate results when sweeping fur and hair, but not the Sweepa. You don’t have to worry about balls of fur or pieces of hair flying around when you sweep with this broom. You are also able to completely sweep away any hair on the floor in just a single pass. There is nothing magical about these claims, or this broom. It actually works, is easy to use, and will out-sweep any other broom on the market.
You may have seen similar products on TV, elsewhere on the internet, or at a home or garden show locally. When comparing this household rubber broom with any other similar item, you will find it to be easier to use, more sturdy, and longer lasting. If you compare it to the regular type of broom you are sweeping your house with now, there is no comparison. Chances are you’ve got an ordinary broom, made of corn or vinyl, which easily flares and doesn’t do the best job of cleaning. Dirt and dust only fly away as you try to sweep them up, and you never really achieve a dirt-free floor. The Household Rubber Broom from Sweepa makes cleaning any hard floor incredibly easy and will replace the tool you are using now. It has the ability to thoroughly sweep in a single pass and because it works so well, you will use less effort to achieve better results. The included squeegee on the back side is nice for drying floors, cleaning spills or doing windows. The flexible bristles are great for sweeping any type of debris, but can also be used with soap and water for scrubbing floors, washing boats, RV’s and vehicles, or cleaning hard to reach windows. This amazing tool is the easiest way to sweep annoying stuff like sand, pet fur, hair and fine particles, but you can use it on all of the regular dirt too. It is the perfect size for use at home, but can also be ideal for hair salons, pet groomers, kennels, professional cleaners and more.

The $18 O-Cedar Angler Angle Broom with Dust Pan is the best at sweeping cramped corners because of its sharp angle. It’s an effective sweeper and has the best dustpan we tested. But its sharp angle and long, soft bristles fling piles of dust, so our panel eliminated it.
Dust damp. Use just-damp dust cloths as you work. The moisture will attract and hold dust. But beware of too much moisture. It can harm wood furniture and delicate surfaces. As an alternative, spritz your cloth with an aerosol dusting spray. Never spray surfaces directly; spray the cloth instead to avoid buildup and overuse of these products.
As we transition our Minds On Physics program from a browser-based, Shockwave-reliant application to an app-based program, we are considering a variety of options that allow teachers to validate student progress. Those teachers who purchased a 2015-16 or a 2016-17 Techer account will continue to have access to the Shockwave-based module through the 2017-18 school year. This will allow those teachers who purchased accounts to continue their code checking at no additional charge, provided that the Shockwave-based module works on their devices. As of July, 2017, we have begun production of a desktop-based app that allows teachers the ability to view questions (not answers), created customized Start Codes, and validate student-submitted Success Codes. We hope to have the Mac and Windows versions ready to distribute in the Fall of 2017.
Pre-moisting can be done with a special washing machine or by hand by simply folding and packing the mops tight in a container and pouring the measured amount of water over them. The mops will then need about 5–10 minutes for the liquid to distribute evenly in their tissue before use. This offers some advantages:
Follow-up. As you can see in the comments the manufacturer did 2 things that are VERY unusual these days of neglected customer service as the norm: 1) they actually followed the reviews of their products and 2) they made good on product failures without even having to be asked.

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.

The Garrett Wade Heavy Duty Garden & Garage Broom is made of natural fibers, so you really shouldn’t use it on wet debris, and you’ll need to keep it as dry as possible to keep it from getting moldy or rotting apart. At $30 plus GW’s shipping costs, it’s also more expensive than the O’Cedar and the Quickie.
The numbers by themselves might not mean much, Flemming said, but subtle changes in technique can lead to big differences in the quality of each stroke. And now curlers have that information at their disposal. They can experiment to see which stroke works best for them.
When choosing a mop for wet cleaning, bear in mind its purpose; not only should it dissolve dirt, but it must also lift it from the floor and remove it. For this reason, avoid string mops. They are heavy to lift, awkward to use and nearly impossible to rinse clean.
We eliminated nine of our test brooms because they were either poorly designed or just plain bad at sweeping. We had a panel of four regular, non-professional sweepers use the five finalists to sweep up flour, litter, and rice at the Wirecutter office in Manhattan’s Chinatown. I also used each of the finalists for several weeks to clean my Brooklyn apartment. I did a weekly sweep in every room—which includes hardwood flooring and a bathroom with small tiles and lots of grout—and daily spot cleanings by the litter box and scratching board because my two cats love to make messes.
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 🙂
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.

We had a corn broom growing up and I hated it. Seems like we spent more time and energy picking up lost straws than going after the dirt. I have a red Velida that I use now… very nice. I like the angled way it fits under the cabinets and it gets all the dust. I generally hate all things new and modern for the house… I’m a very old fasioned 23 year old, but I think a corn broom is for the birds. It’s high praise indeed for me to give anything modern a thumbs up! Maybe a corn broom is good for sweeping up outside. I’ll tell you the most interesting broom I’ve ever seen before… a Salton Wings Broom. It is stylish with translucent plastic shroud (some may think tacky), and if you turn the handle the wings spread out to increase the sweeping surface. I saw one in Winn Dixie… got a few looks when I tried it out sweeping up the whole aisle. It’s pretty heavy and I don’t think the plastic mechanics would hold up over time… but check out the link for a laugh :O)
The Swiffer Sweeper is not a broom substitute; it is a dust mop with disposable refills. You shouldn’t use it to sweep up Cheerios or broken glass, but to capture dust and other remnants left behind after you’ve swept with a broom.
Storage solutions allow your garage to be so much more than just a space for your car. Heavy-duty plastic storage bins can hold a variety of items from sporting equipment to holiday decorations and are stackable to maximize the use of space.
