Rifle & Pistol Accessories. Easily Scrape Hard To Reach Crevices & Gaskets. This set of six picks and hooks includes multiple angles and curves for just about any requirement. They have handles with r…
Dustpan care is similar. Don’t store one sitting on the rubber, because you can permanently warp that lip and ruin your dustpan. Hang it up. Clean your dustpan (and brush, if it comes with one) with some warm soapy water, then shake each out and air-dry.
The $22 Bona Microfiber Floor Mop has an extendable handle like the Simplee Cleen, but it also has the same built-in Velcro that prevents us from recommending the Simplee Cleen. None of the Bona’s cloths were as good at cleaning as our pick, and removing the cloth from the Velcro teeth resulted in a massive dust plume in the air and all down my front. The Simplee Cleen had the same problem, but to a lesser degree.
The O-Cedar Dual-Action Flip Mop and refills are available from most retailers, and they’re easy to find online, too. Our pick costs $19, and refills are $10 each from Amazon, but we found our pick for $13—and its refills for $7 to $8—in Target, Home Depot, and Walmart. The O-Cedar and its refills are less expensive and much more effective than other dust mops we tested.
This angled broom from Black & Decker not only makes our list of best brooms but also scores top marks in almost every aspect. The design of this broom is extremely ergonomic and convenient and lets you reach into the tightest and smallest of places. The bristles and the handle both are exceptionally well-made and provide very efficient cleaning. The handle also has a rubber bumper in the middle which makes it very easy to grip and move around. This broom is ideal for all sorts of settings, be it your home, office or outdoors.
If you’re all for getting your hands dirty in the yard, but less enthusiastic about the clean-up, the Haaga Topsweep 255 will make quick and easy work of tidying. This people-powered, push machine features a dual-action sweeping system with rotating brushes and can pick up wet and dry debris, including everything from dust and cigarette butts to pulled weeds and hedge clippings, to even bigger debris, like the Junior’s stray juice boxes. Everything gets brushed into a built-in collection unit, stirring up very little dust. This lightweight model is great for walks and drives. It can be easily assembled without tools and stores flat. For larger spaces, consider the heavy-duty Haaga 696.
When it comes to eco-friendly products, this broom is sure to occupy a place in every list out there. No less than 80% of the broom is made out of recycled bottles, which makes it environmentally-friendly to an impressive standard. At the same time, its metal handle has a sleek black finish which is also very easy to grip and use. The bristles of the broom themselves are robust and stiff and do a superb job of dealing with wet and heavy debris.
Yes. The head is totally dishwasher safe, and it can also be washed by hand in the sink, hosed off outside, etc. The handle will collapse to about 34 inches and expand to about 60 inches. You can set it to whatever length you like best within that range. You will be very happy with it’s ability to remove hair from any type of flooring.
Just like the material of bristles matter, the shape of bristles provides efficient performance by cleaning the carpets, mats or floors. Following is the shape of the bristles which collect the dust particles efficiently.
Thick synthetic bristles with feathered ends corral escapee Cheerios or clean up a toppled plant. Sturdy enough to move serious dirt. Padded handle for comfort. Give it a firm shake when done and debris falls right off.
We always appreciate when errors are pointed out, but we actually don’t mean “was foiled by”. Our water capacity test was not meant to show how well the pan could hold water, it was just a way to measure the capacity of the dustpan. When the pan couldn’t hold water, this was not a mark against the pan, it just meant that the test failed at its goal of telling us the capacity of the dustpan. So it was the dustpan that foiled the test, and not the test that foiled the dustpan.
Finally, emptying a dustpan is easier than clearing the storage compartment of even the most cleverly designed canister style vacuum; all you need to do is rotate your wrist above a trash can or garbage bag to have a dust pan that’s empty and ready for more rubbish.
A combination of modular closed storage units and shelves transforms empty wall space into a balanced, all-purpose storage solution for garden supplies, recreation gear and home improvement implements.
This machine may look like an ordinary mini-cultivator, but it’s much more than that; it’s a multi-tasking yard care system. You can customize your MM 55 C-E Yard Boss with aerator, sweeper, edger, and other attachments (which will cost you less money and space than it would to fill your garage with a bunch of single-function machines). This all-in-one will lend its ergonomic, folding handles and Easy2Start system, which eliminates the need for a fast-pull starting cord, to all of its soil and yard prep functions. This is another high-power, low-weight tool out-of-the-box, but you can add weight to it as needed for tough or rocky ground that’s harder to work.
Organize all your yard tools with the Monkey Bar Large Yard Tool Rack. This rack will securely store 12-20 yard-tools off the floor. Only 4 screws into 2 studs 48” apart, and you’re finished. No longer do you have to hang yard-tools on nails on the wall where studs exist; this gives you the versatility to store everything off the ground and regain valuable floor space. This rack does not limit you on the size of yard-tools; you can hang a wheel barrow, shovels, rakes, weed eaters, leaf blowers, and hedge clippers.

The holder is made from strong, lightweight and durable aluminum alloy and toughened ABS plastic. WINOMO can hold up to 30kg (70 pounds) weight. A single unit includes four friction grips and five hooks. In the garage or gardening shed, use the holder to hang heavy items such as shovels and rakes. Although WINOMO is a great broom holder, it may not be as easy to install as its other competitors may.
Just like mop, the soft plastic bristle broom needs to be washed regularly for efficient cleaning service. Implement the practice to wash the broom and then use it. Make sure to use a detergent while washing the broom. Let it dry and then use it.
The Libman weighs about a third of a pound more than our pick, with more weight in the head, so it feels top-heavy in comparison. One of our panel members loved it, saying “I feel like the weight of the broom is assisting, like the broom is doing some of the work for me.” But most panel members didn’t like the Libman’s heavy head and bristles; they preferred the lighter, more evenly distributed Casabella.
Indoor brooms are designed to move small quantities of dust and fine particles, but their bristles and bindings generally aren’t strong enough to push heavier materials. Outdoor brooms are designed to move large-scale effluvia such as acorns, wet leaves, sand, and gravel, and their heads are wide enough to clear a wide swath quickly. Our top outdoor broom picks have a mix of fine bristles for dust and coarse bristles for big debris. You can use just one broom to sweep away sand, spent fire-crackers, bottle caps, durian rinds, band-aids, and all the other evidence of your block party aftermath.
Cleanup in aisle five! This petite (39-inch-tall) take on pro tools—with teeth that comb dust from broom bristles—makes quick work of small messes, then snaps tight for storage. Note: The Good Grips handheld whisk broom– and-dustpan set (not shown) was also a winner.
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.

In our test with Boy Scouts and gardeners at the Massachusetts Audubon Society, everyone who tried the O’Cedar liked its weight, maneuverability, and speed. It can easily change directions while you push it, which is important when you’re moving such a big broom. Audubon Society property manager Sandy Vorce called this broom “really good!”, saying, “it moves even the wet pine needles…it gets the job done quickly.” Vorce and the Scouts found that it was the best-feeling tool out of all the sample brooms, and repeatedly praised it for its balance.
Adjustable height broomstick—Sometimes you’ll find that the broomstick is too long in some situations. For example, you can’t sweep underneath the bed, without hitting something (or someone) in back of you. So some manufacturers have made a broomstick with an adjustable height.
The most satisfying DIY projects are those that serve not just a practical purpose, but an aesthetic one as well.

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.
