To clean a wet room, you’ll use a greater number of cleaning products and cleaning tools than when cleaning a dry room. In the cleaning tote, rely on degreasers/all-purpose cleaners to cut through oily dirt and dissolve dried-on stains. Pair a degreasing spray with a good supply of fresh cleaning cloths; using a fresh cloth makes sure you remove the loosened soil, not just spread it about in a more even layer. To save money and go green, stock cleaning totes with homemade window cleaner, white vinegar and baking soda for sparkling kitchens and bathrooms.

Swivel-head broom: This type of broom lets the broomstick bend where it meets the bristles. It gets in between tight spaces, and allows you to go underneath and around furniture, cabinets and appliances.

When buying a corn broom, look for a smooth, strong handle and multiple rows of stitching to hold the bristles in place. Store the corn broom head-up to prevent the bristles from bending. As the broom ages, trim the bristles an inch or so to restore it to youthful vigor.

Work your way toward a door. This will ensure that you’re not stepping on parts of the floor you’ve already cleaned. If you still end up stepping on a wet area, run the mop back over it to clean up your tracks.

Version 52 of the Firefox browser was released in March of 2017. Upon releasing this version, Firefox announced that it would no longer support NPAPI plug-ins. Unfortunately, this includes the Shockwave plug-in that Minds On Physics relies upon. This means that Minds on Physics users will either have to choose a different brower (Safari or Internet Explorer) or revert back to version 51 of Firefox or use one of the mobile apps.

Flagged Bristles—These are also called “feathered bristles” They are ideal for collecting small dust and debris, because they don’t snap back and scatter the dust that you’re trying to gather. They are frayed at the ends to collect small dust particles.

A stand-alone dustpan should clip to your broom for storage, and be sturdy enough not to bend a lot or break under moderate pressure. A comfortable grip is a nice perk, and a good dustpan set should have a hole for hanging on a hook. Dustpans shouldn’t be expensive; our survey told us most people want to spend $6 on a dustpan and up to $12 for a dustpan/brush combo set.

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.

Live on a wooded lot? Got a fire pit? Then a chain saw is a must, and you can’t do much better than Husqvarna’s 50th Anniversary 450 for landowners. It’s equipped with a Smart Start decompression valve that ensures an easy, smooth start-up. This machine features the desirable combo of high power (3.2 hp) and low weight (11 lbs). Add an ergonomic rear handle, fuel-efficient and low emission X-TORQ engine with vibration reduction technology plus enhanced safety features, and you’ve got yourself one impressive cutter. If you’re only an occasional user and don’t need quite this much power, try the new, smaller 440, 240, or 235 e-seires homeowner models.

Change your mop pad as necessary. Unlike with traditional string mops, you’ll need to replace your cloth mop’s pad multiple times during the cleaning process. You’ll know it’s time for a new pad when your current 1 starts to leave behind dirt and other forms of residue.[14]

Hardwood floors require special care because of their finish. Dust and other particles can scratch wood floors if they’re swept with a hard- or natural-bristle broom. Floor care experts typically recommend using dust mops to gather dust and debris off hardwood floors to prevent scratches. But if you wish to use a broom, ensure that it has soft, synthetic bristles, which allow you to sweep while keeping your floor’s finish intact.

Dust mop cloths come in a few common styles: cut end, looped end, and chenille. Cut ends are prone to fraying, and looped ends are a little better at grabbing but our tests found that chenille microfiber heads—the kind that look like a colorful forest of little worms—are the most effective because their nubs get into cracks and corners better. Chenille heads also hold more dust, which means they can clean more before being washed.

Flemming and Fowler were coming to realize that their climate-controlled suit jacket was not about to set the world on fire. (Fowler still has a couple of half-finished prototypes in his closet.) Perhaps they would be better served by focusing on the high-tech broom.

It’s OK if your broom gets wet, and in fact you should periodically clean its bristles with soapy water; a bit of laundry soap and hot water works well. It’s not OK if your broom stays wet, however. Bristles left wet for too long can curl or unravel, and can also experience a buildup of mold, mildew, or bacteria. Dry the bristles with a hairdryer on low, or simply leave the broom in a sunny, airy location with its bristles aiming down so the water can both drip and evaporate away.

We also tested the brooms at home to see how they’d perform in three situations most homeowners would encounter. We worked on three types of outdoor surfaces, smooth, rough, and decking with crevices, and three common types of debris—leaves, pine needles, and sand. I swept leaves on a deck, a mix of pine needles and leaves on an asphalt driveway, and mixed sand and gravel on a garage floor. On a deck, leaves tend to stick in cracks between the boards, and need a stiff broom to move them. The pine needles leave a trail of dust, testing the brooms’ ability to penetrate shallow cracks in pavement and to move fine particles. The sand and gravel tested the brooms’ performance on heavy, dense debris. Many reviewers mentioned sweeping snow in their comments, so, before winter set in, the sand stood in for heavy, wet snow. The best brooms swept through all these tests with flying colors, dislodging leaves, pushing dust out of craggy pavement, and forcing sand to the far edges of the garage.

Mop no more than once a week. If your floors get particularly dirty thanks to children, pets, or lots of foot traffic, you may need to mop them every week. However, for most houses, try to mop your hardwood floors around twice a month.[1]

Take cleaning seriously and dress for the job. Avoid loose clothing that will catch on handles or interfere with tools. Comfortable clothing that provides a free range of motion keeps the cleaner on the job longer, and more happily. Washable clothing is a must; a white cotton T-shirt or top will be easiest to keep stain-free.
