As for the double-sided tape, if you do use it and need to take it down, a few drops of acetone (nail polish remover) can be dripped behind the shadow boxes and it will loosen the adhesive.  (This should ONLY be used on surfaces like bricks that won’t be stained by the acetone.  Never use it on painted surfaces.)  Then, to remove the residue that Christine mentioned, Goof-Off or similar solvents works well.  Don’t use paper towels to clean off the residue. The paper tends to tear up on rough surfaces like bricks and leaves behind white junk on the bricks.  Instead, use a cloth rag and don’t rub hard.

The room itself is cobwebbed, and dingy with old paint; its floor is strewn with grey sand, in a fashion that has elsewhere fallen into long disuse; and it is easy to conclude, from the general slovenliness of the place, that this is a sanctuary into which womankind, with her tools of magic, the broom and mop, has very infrequent access.

In the mid-1820’s the Shakers, an industrious religious order, started making brooms, changing the design of the round broom: they eliminated the woven stems up the handle, the holes and the pegs, and used wire to bind their broom to the handle. They then put their broom in a vise, sewing it into the flat brooms we use today. While their flat broom sweeps a rough surface very well, it does not do as quick and thorough a job as the earlier round broom, on a smooth surface.

Levi was not satisfied with having his very fine brooms fall apart, and envisioned a machine which would help him make better brooms, and make them faster. In 1810 the foot-treadle broom machine was invented. This clever machine played an integral part in the Industrial Revolution.

While we don’t have an exact date for the broom’s initial invention, bundles of twigs, reeds, corn husks, and other natural fibers have almost certainly been used since ancient times to sweep up ash and embers around fires and, later, hearths. The New Testament, for example, mentions broom use in Jesus’ discussion in Luke 15:8 of the importance of even one lost soul: “Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?”

As far as the stud finder goes, textured ceilings create a challenge as to read what’s behind them. Also, ceiling joists will cross a load bearing wall. If the nearest wall to the bikes is non load bearing, the joists may run parallel to the wall.

—History—As a heraldic device, the Broom was adopted at a very early period as the badge of Brittany. Geoffrey of Anjou thrust it into his helmet at the moment of going into battle, that his troops might see and follow him. As he plucked it from a steep bank which its roots had knit together he is reputed to have said: ‘This golden plant, rooted firmly amid rock, yet upholding what is ready to fall, shall be my cognizance. I will maintain it on the field, in the tourney and in the court of justice.’ Fulke of Anjou bore it as his personal cognizance, and Henry II of England, his grandson, as a claimant of that province, also adopted it, its mediaeval name Planta genista, giving the family name of Plantagenets to his line. It may be seen on the Great Seal of Richard I, this being its first official, heraldic appearance in England. Another origin is claimed for the heraldic use of the Broom in Brittany. A prince of Anjou assassinated his brother there and seized his kingdom, but being overcome by remorse, he made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, in expiation of his crime. Every night on the journey, he scourged himself with a brush of ‘genets,’ or genista, and adopted this plant as his badge, in perpetual memory of his repentance. St. Louis of France continued the use of this token, founding a special order on the occasion of his marriage in the year 1234. The Colle de Genet, the collar of the order, was composed alternately of the fleur-de-lys of France and the Broomflower, the Broomflower being worn on the coat of his bodyguard of a hundred nobles, with the motto, ‘Exaltat humiles,’ ‘He exalteth the lowly.’ The order was held in great esteem and its bestowal regarded as a high honour. Our Richard II received it, and a Broom plant, with open, empty pods, can be seen ornamenting his tomb in Westminster Abbey. In 1368 Charles V of France bestowed the insignia of the Broom pod on his favourite chamberlain, and in 1389 Charles VI gave the same decoration to his kinsmen.

The powdered seeds are likewise administered and sometimes a tincture is employed. Bruised Broom seeds were formerly used infused in rectified spirit, allowed to stand two weeks and then strained. A tablespoonful in a glass of peppermint water was taken daily for liver complaints and ague.

I was hoping this would be a little better quality with Professional in the name. But I think I’ll be moving back to a traditional style cotton head mop. Everything on this mop is sturdy, the handle is great, and the sponge portion itself works good. But if you do any kind of real scrubbing by pushing down, after a while the plastic quarter-turn nuts that affix the sponge to the mop break. Thankfully replacement sponges come with new nuts.

Could you imagine the frustration of having a kitchen full of young, playing children, while trying to cook a meal in the fireplace? Dust is flying as they run around the table, playing tag. It is nearly time for your husband and the field hands to come in, hungry after a long day of plowing, planting or harvesting, and dinner is not ready. If you could get the youngsters out of the kitchen, maybe all would be ready on time, but they do not heed the oft repeated words, Please go outside and play. Time for stronger measures–take that old, poorly made broom, and give them a swat with a stern warning to GO OUTSIDE! Swish goes the broom and the straw portion of the broom sails across the room. And so the phrase for anger, Flying Off The Handle.

The medicinal use of the brush-like branches of the Broom, under the name Genista, Genesta, or Genestia, is mentioned in the earliest printed herbals, under Passau, 1485, the Hortus Sanitatis, 1491, the Grete Herball, 1516, and others. It is likewise the Genista figured by the German botanists and pharmacologists of the sixteenth century.
