Nothing beats kicking back near the glow of your backyard fire pit. It’s the Paul Bunyan-style log-splitting that’s a drag. You can split logs up to 20 inches long and 10 inches in diameter like butter with this 5-ton machine. It features a 15 amp induction motor and will run on regular household current, eliminating the need for fuel and the fumes that come with it. The compact machine can be easily moved by one person and comes with a six foot extension cord for added convenience. Two-handed operation keeps your hands clear of danger, requiring you to initiate the splitting away from the blade. It’s no hardcore 27-ton hydraulic splitter, but it’s also not going to cost you three times as much.

Professional dry mops consist of a flat sheet of microfiber textile or sheets with a surface of looped yarn, usually about 15 cm (6 in) wide, and comes in variable lengths (usually 30–100 cm (12–39 in)).

The $15 Casabella Wayclean Flex Floor Duster has the best non-chenille cloth we tested and a handle and comfy grip similar to our favorite broom. However, it was one of the worst at steering and has a hollow frame like the Flip Floor Duster and the Rubbermaid Flexible Sweeper.

The OXO’s handle did break during our testing, but only after some serious abuse. We clipped the OXO to the Casabella broom and violently shook the broom, and the dustpan flew off and smacked into the floor, where the handle cracked. Luckily, the black rubber grip holds the hard plastic together, and the break is hardly noticeable. Even cracked, the dustpan still securely grips the handle of our Casabella broom, but we’ll keep an eye on it to see if the crack becomes more pronounced over time.

The product is specially designed for commercial uses. It has polyethylene bristle and aluminum handle makes handling easy. The angled bristles are shaped to provide easy sweeping and makes the cleaning process efficient. Polypropylene bristles are designed for longevity and are stain resistant. The fusion set bristles are permanent and will not wear out quickly. The bristles of broom are cut to reach out hard places for cleaning. It is perfect for indoor cleaning.

The material of broomstick varies from aluminum to wood and plastic. A wood broom will be heavy and durable, but it will not be easy to handle. The aluminum broom will weigh less but bends if light pressure is applied to it.

After using the above criteria to narrow down dozens of products from our three main categories, we called in and tested 14 brooms (seven of which have dustpans), 12 dust mops, 15 different dust mop heads, and 10 dustpans (eight of which come with a brush). Testing started in the fall of 2014 and, hundreds of hours later, is still ongoing as of spring 2015. We’re ready to pick our favorites, but will continue testing these picks for months to come.

This broom from Libman with its attractive color theme looks as well as it cleans and would make for an excellent addition to your household tool set. The broom features a steel handle, a hanger hole, and a one-piece resin block. The surface of the broom sweeps out an impressive 11 inches, which makes for fast and thorough cleaning. It is also extremely lightweight and very compact, making it ideal for daily usage.

To test dustpans, we tried each one with our broom pick by cleaning half a teaspoon of flour and 1.5 teaspoons of cat litter. This test showed us how well each dustpan worked with our recommended broom and how effective each is at picking up, holding, and not spilling particles of all sizes. Some dustpans came with brushes; we tested those with their own brushes and with our pick for best broom. After eliminating six dustpans that were abysmal at cleaning or way too small for our broom, we filled the remaining four with water to measure their capacity, and our panel used the finalists in the Chinatown test lab to find a winner.

After reading this article and the updates I was really excited to get the Casabella broom. Unfortunately it’s no longer available on the Casabella site and the one via Amazon is $36.

A quick primer on sweeping: It is important. The science behind it is much more complicated than people think. The simplified version is that sweeping slightly increases the temperature of the ice while creating micro-scratches on the surface. The result is that players are better able to control for distance and trajectory as the rock travels down the sheet. The sport hinges on precision, so every brush stroke counts.

The $25 Casabella Height Adjustable Butterfly Floor Duster also has a great frame, but its height-adjustable pole is heavy, awkward, and unnecessary. Its cover didn’t hold up well in the wash, either; the fuzzy white edges shed a lot, and it wasn’t as good at picking up dust after being washed.

We’re really pulling for Amazon to get this restocked ASAP. In the meantime our runner-up Libman is available from Home Depot and you can order it and pickup at the store, or they also have shipping for $6. Hope this helps!

Hamilton was coaching a junior women’s team six years ago and 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.
