Half a dozen visitors are being given a tour of the printing museum Saturday by director Mark Barbour while Soinski is in his dressing room – a broom closet in the back – getting ready for the big finale: a personal visit from Ben Franklin in his colonial print shop.
When we researched the O-Cedar Dual-Action Flip Mop, we were concerned that the dust mop’s flipping mechanism would be loose and uncooperative, making the dust mop difficult to steer. But we found that the polypropylene resin frame has two thin, hollow strips that make the head top heavy. This makes the frame easy to flip along its horizontal axis by simply lifting the handle.
I found some freestanding racks, but they were plastic, pretty expensive and didn’t seem to hold much. Then while shopping at home cheapo I saw a store display rack that looked about right, and I figured I’d try copying it. It worked out pretty well!
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.
When hanging long handled tools—like brooms, rakes, and shovels—in your shop or shed, you can buy brackets made for that purpose, but they can be expensive. A cheaper option is to use plastic pipe hangers available at building supply stores that are made to support PVC pipe.
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.
I needed a hanger that could span between two wood struts in a shed. This is plastic, so it flexes a bit. Also the tops of the protruding holders are flat, thus lets my shovel and rakes work their way forward too much. Next time I will look for a rack that has better stiffness and retention properties.
Lay your long-handled garden tools side by side with about 2 in. clearance separating each tool from the next. Use a tape measure to measure across the point where the handle meets each tool, determine the distance from the middle of one handle to the middle of the next and write down these measurements.
This plus the dust mop spray make a world of difference in keeping my hardwood floors free of dust. I used to use a broom, tried a swiffer, tried one after the other, and not get the floors anywhere near as clean as with this dust mop. I haven’t had it long so I can’t speak to any of the issues I’ve read in some of these reviews. I imagine I’ll know more after the mop head’s first washing. That’s usually the big test. In the meantime I’m happy.
After a year of using our broom pick, we’ve found it has held up well, though it’s necessary to clean it out more regularly in the tub the older it gets. The ends have frayed a teensy bit more, so they tend to grab onto pet hair more than they did when the broom was new. It’s not really a problem, since the broom still cleans pet hair and dust as well as the day we got it.

Of the dust mops we tested, the O-Cedar was by far the most effective dust mop at picking up dust. Each side could pick up a teaspoon of flour, a test many dust mops failed. Using both sides, the O-Cedar picked up a whole tablespoon (3 teaspoons) of flour, a feat no other dust mop we tested could match. The O-Cedar cleaned 500 square feet of my Brooklyn apartment at its dirtiest—twice—before finally needing a wash. For comparison, only one other dust mop could go this long between cleanings, and the Swiffer Sweeper needed six disposable sheets to clean the same mess.
Developers carry on building vast penthouses for pluto-crats but not, it seems, to satisfy the demands of more modest buyers. The space standards mean the end of any new residential property in London selling for below £400,000, and nothing for rent below £300 a week — banishing whole classes of worthy citizens from the central London property market. There will be no more falling out of the theatre straight into bed, no more aesthetes in Bloomsbury garrets; and for commuters, no more avoiding the daily crush on bus, train or Underground.

Yesterday’s lurid revelations are likely to confirm the impression that Becker, who has two other children from his marriage, has only a scant understanding of the opposite sex. Asked why women seemed to find him attractive, Becker replied: No idea. I’m not especially rich, I’m not especially pretty, I’m no Adonis and my manhood isn’t over-enormous.

Tall pantry cabinets topped with smaller cabinets neatly frame-out an alcove that converts to a workplace with the addition of a desktop and a pegboard-clad wall that contributes more storage options.

Lots of people like the $7 OXO Good Grips Compact Dustpan and Brush Set, but it’s way too small to use as your primary dustpan. It also doesn’t have any kind of handle or grip, and the brush is really hard to remove from the dustpan once it’s locked in.
A specially constructed yellow set was installed in the continuity booth for the first time. This was yellow in colour with two-tone blue edging, and allowed for the display of many more viewer pictures than previously.

Our panel unanimously agreed that the Casabella Wayclean Wide Angle Broom had the most comfortable handle out of all the brooms we tested because of its soft green grip made from foam EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate). The comfy grip can be adjusted up or down to fit your ideal gripping position on the pole—it’s not easy, and requires some firm twisting and tugging. But that means it doesn’t slip or slide easily, so it won’t shift or fall while you’re sweeping.
The Libman broom and dustpan featured here are terrible. The broom’s bristles are incredibly stiff and shoot dirt all over the place when you’re sweeping. The dust pan is bad because it has a huge ridge designed to keep the dirt in the pan, but combined with the stiff bristles of the broom this ridge acts like a ramp for launching dirt across the room.
Even a great broom needs a dust mop to help finish the job, and the $19 O-Cedar Dual-Action Microfiber Flip Mop is the best we tested. It held more dirt than any other dust mop in our test, by picking up the most debris—this was the only one that could grab a full tablespoon of flour—and by cleaning the most surface area before requiring a wash. Its large, double-sided head is big enough to work quickly, yet nimble enough to get dust from corners, with a 17.5- by 5.5-inch footprint that cleans as much area as six Swiffer sheets (and more effectively, too) between each wash. The chenille microfiber surface is the ideal blend of dust mop materials, and it’s held up well over months of cleaning and laundering. After about 100 washings, the head will need replacement, and the O-Cedar’s $7 to $10 refills are cheaper and better than the competition.
I really like this little buggy. It went together quickly and all the pieces fit together nice and snug. The only thing I would like to see improved is using wheels a bit bigger and mounting them to the sides of unit instead of underneath, and locks on all four wheels instead of just two. I my rack assembled in a few minutes and then tidied up our tool shed in no time at all. There is ample room to store all our yard tools and more. There are varying sized slots for the long handled tools such as rakes, shovels, etc. with springy attachments which hold them in place nicely. I even had room on the cart to put our gas can and extra motor oil for the lawnmower and hedge trimmer. My husband had been just leaning everything all around the shed and it was hard to find what I wanted. Now all the tools are in one place, and I can unlock the wheels and turn the unit to get at the things on the back row easily.

We eliminated 12 dust mop heads that failed our flour test or didn’t hold up well in the wash. We tested each of the three finalists again with sifted flour and washed them one more time before long-term testing them all for several months in an apartment with two cats. The long-term tests revealed which dust mop could go the longest between cleanings, which could hold the most dust overall, and which ones held up best over multiple washings.
