I bought the Casabella because I trust your reviews. It is a great broom, but the head snapped off mine after three weeks! I am so bummed out. I am not exactly Bam Bam so it wasn’t like I was using tons of force when sweeping my floors. Why, oh, why, can’t companies make products built to last!

Amazon reviewers say the O’Cedar push broom feels “solid,” “strong,” and “well-built,” and they like 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.
The comb broom is available with the broom bristles which will help you to clean the small mess or corners. It is perfect for efficient cleaning purpose. The long stand enables the good grip, and the dustpan set helps you to collect dust quickly. The full broom set along with the full-size dustpan is optimal for all types of indoor sweeping task. You can even clean the large areas with the feathered and soft tipped bristles. They do not provide any scratch on the floor and are flexible. The broom is lightweight and provides compact storage.
Push brooms have rectangular heads with bristles attached in rows. The bristles may be glued in, which means that the bristles will eventually fall out when the glue fails, or they may be tacked in with metal staples, which leave you at the mercy of the tack-tician. For example, three bundles of tacked-in bristles on the Garrett Wade Angled-Bristle Outdoor Patio Broom (no longer available) fell out in 15 minutes of use, making up about 10% of the brooms bristles. A broom that increases the amount of debris on your floor is definitely not doing its job.

Last, we found that the pole—which screws into the steering mechanism on the frame—can unscrew if you sharply jerk the handle to the left (counterclockwise) when turning the dust mop. This is annoying, but it’s also avoidable if you use smooth, calm strokes.
The Rubbermaid Commercial Palmyra Hardwood Block Street Broom looks promising, with strong, sturdy, firmly-attached bristles—but it’s just a broom head. The broom does have a hole for inserting a handle, but that hole doesn’t have threads. It’s just a conical hole, designed to match the Rubbermaid Commercial Sanded Wood Handle with Tapered Tip—that is, a pointy stick. What happens when you sweep with a broom pushed onto the end of a pointy stick? The head falls off, over and over and over again. Neither I nor my testers could manage to make the Rubbermaid Palmyra broom stay on its handle. If you have patience, glue, a strong arm, and a mallet, you could probably make this broom head work for you.
Thanks to the affordability of a broom and dustpan set, you should consider purchasing more than one set and delegating them to various areas of your home or business. Keeping one broom for use outdoors and another for the inside can help keep dust and dirt out of the home while still letting you keep a clean patio, porch, or walkway.
Cleaning Tip: I use my Libman Wonder Mop (#2000) to clean the shower. No stretching or scratching and the shower gets really clean. Just dip the mop in your cleaning solution and mop the shower and tub, then rinse. Easy!
There’s no universal answer to how long microfiber lasts—that depends on how well it’s cared for, how often it’s washed, how dirty it gets, and how well-made it is to begin with. Manufacturers estimate their microfiber mop heads will survive anywhere from 100 to 500 washes. (How often you need to wash it will vary; once every two weeks worked for us.) Both experts say to pay careful attention to how well your dust mop cleans. When it stops picking up dust—or if it falls apart entirely—it’s time to buy a new cloth.
The Swiffer’s biggest appeal is the convenience of disposable cloths, and Procter & Gamble emphasized this advantage over washable dust mops in our interview. But despite the Swiffer’s ease of use and ubiquitous popularity, the fact that there are more effective cleaning options available—plus the Swiffer’s higher monetary and environmental costs—means that it isn’t the best choice for most people.

On October 14, 2008, M.O.P. filed suit in a New York Federal Court against the WWE and John Cena. The group claims that Cena and the WWE stole parts of their song Ante Up for Cena’s theme song The Time is Now. The theme song is also featured as the first track on Cena’s album You Can’t See Me. M.O.P. is seeking the destruction of the song and asking for $150,000 in damages. The lawsuit has since been dropped, it is unknown if a settlement was reached outside of court.
Each storage container features an array of protective features to ensure your items are secured safely and can be transported without fear of damage or tampering. While plastic storage containers might keep out dust and deter water, specialized equipment and valuables require significantly more security. Consider storage containers that are watertight, crush-proof or even corrosion-proof and chemical-resistant. Look for one with a padded interior that can be easily customized by tearing the perforated padding. If necessary, consider additional features like padlocks or keyed locks.
On the bright side, when/if the threads snap on the quickie broom (like mine had), there’s another hole that you can use. At that time, go get a handle with metal threads and screw it into the other hole. Problem solved
A mop (such as a floor mop) is a mass or bundle of coarse strings or yarn, etc., or a piece of cloth, sponge, or other absorbent material, attached to a pole or stick. It is used to soak up liquid, for cleaning floors and other surfaces, to mop up dust, or for other cleaning purposes. The word (then spelled mappe) is attested in English as early as 1496, but new refinements and variations of mop designs have been introduced, from time to time. For example, American inventor Jacob Howe received U.S. patent #241 for a mop holder in 1837 and Thomas W. Stewart (U.S. patent #499,402) in 1893.
All ready to buy the O-Cedar Dual-Action Microfiber Flip Mop and noticed that it’s $13 at Home Depot http://www.homedepot.com/p/O-Cedar-Dual-Action-Microfiber-Flip-Mop-143163/204412159. Do you guys at Wirecutter get referral codes for HD?
If you’re looking for an actual mop, writer Ashlea Halpern suggests the one used at Nike headquarters: “I can’t believe I’m typing this, but the Bona made mopping kinda fun. The flat-head mop is wider than a Swiffer, covering more ground faster while still swiveling under furniture and into hard-to-reach corners. The microfiber pad gripped the mop firmly and didn’t get filthy as fast as the Swiffer pads do: I mopped both the living and dining rooms before stopping to clean the pad and reattach it. That action alone addressed my biggest beef with the Swiffer.”
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 in. 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 Libman comes with a dustpan—unlike our pick—but the bundled dustpan isn’t nearly as good as the OXO Good Grips Clip-On Dustpan that we recommend. The Libman dustpan is about 2 inches wider than the OXO, but it’s less effective at sweeping because it doesn’t have a rubber lip. The Libman is also shallower, has a shorter ridge, and lacks the OXO’s comfortable handle.
Since these organizers bear weight, their construction should feature strong and durable material. Plastic is the favorite material for broom holders because of their lightness. However, they are not strong enough unless they are toughened. The best brands are those features toughened ABS plastic. Some great brands are made of lightweight metal.
Not just any broom, but one that they thought could be essential to the sport of curling, which relies on the best broom handling out there as teams strategically cajole a polished granite rock across a sheet of ice.
Although most people never consider this broom for hardwood, this is much better than the traditional broom. Its pliable rubber bristles form a barrier, so if it is being pulled all along the floor, all of the dust and dirt and even hair are being removed. This is because the bristles are also static charged, like the Swiffer, keeping all debris on the broom itself, and not spreading it as the broom is pushed and pulled. Rubber brooms are considered one of the best brooms for hardwood floors by cleaning professionals and will greatly extend the life of laminate or true hardwood flooring.
The $20 Libman Precision Angle Broom with Dustpan is one of the best-selling indoor brooms on Amazon and a smaller version of our runner-up pick. This broom had an inconsistent number of bristles per clump, which thwarted my plan to count the bristles of every broom we tested. This inconsistency is a drawback, but it’s a bad broom for other reasons: It’s an inch shorter than our runner-up and has a smaller head. The bottom line: Our runner-up is better at sweeping.
The quality synthetic bristles are easy to split up. They make the cleaning process efficient and easy with the comfortable handle grip. It is perfect for sweeping bathrooms, kitchen, porch, garage and other dry areas of home. The synthetic bristles are connected with the hardwood block which is further connected to a proactive stick for premium results.
The Lehmans Authentic Corn Barn Broom ($33) feels like the cashmere of brooms. It sweeps smoothly and softly, cleaning craggy pavement and shifting sand with finesse. It’s slightly too soft and flexible to yank leaves out of deck crevices, but it was the best broom in my sample for cleaning fine debris, bar none. Its handle is noticeably thicker than other brooms’ handles, with a circumference of approximately 3.75”, vs. 3.5” for the Weiler broom and 3” for Garrett Wade, though it still felt comfortable in our testers’ hands. It was also slightly shorter than average; its overall length is 54”, vs. 57” for the Garrett Wade Heavy Duty broom. Buy this broom for an exquisite pavement sweeping experience on fairly smooth surfaces—just remember to get a stiffer broom for your butler to clean the deck.

I went to Amazon for the broom and noticed it says “Usually ships within 2 to 5 months.” I don’t think most people are going to want to wait that long. If you order through Casabella that includes a shipping charge unless you tack on $25 worth of merchandise. It kind of makes for a really expensive $10 broom.
I purchased this broom last year while dog sitting my son’s bulldog. It’s amazing how it sweeps up every bit of dust and dog hair from my ceramic tiled floors. The adjustable handle works for me because I’m short. I also love the fact its rubber bristles are washable and effective. I recently purchased 3 more for my children who own dogs that shed. They will receive them as gifts for Christmas and if they don’t love them, I will be surprised.
