Brooms are a slow-moving technology. They have been effectively the same—a handle with bristles for sweeping—for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. According to this fascinating broom history by J. Bryan Lowder, synthetic fibers were first invented in the 1940s, and started appearing in brooms in the 1950s and ’60s. We don’t see any crazy new developments like that on the horizon, so you shouldn’t worry about your broom becoming obsolete.

Came here looking for a mop rec because my current mop head broke after only a year, and, uh oh, you recommend the crappy one I am looking replace. It shouldn’t be that surprising that it broke considering the highest stress point (where the handle screws in) is made of fairly flimsy plastic. I’m looking to buy products that will last for the long haul and not end up in the landfill after a year or two and am willing to spend more to accomplish that. Curious if you guys came across any mop heads without plastic components.

This is the traditional garden standby. Shoveling material in and out is easy. Wheelbarrows tip up for easy unloading. The single-wheel variety requires some strength and sense of balance (let a load of dirt tip over sideways in the lawn and you will know what I mean). A heavy-duty two wheel model is available. Wheelbarrows are manufactured in homeowner and contractor grades. Contractor versions generally have a heavier duty tray support and a thicker gauge tray. Wheelbarrow trays are metal or plastic.

It is important to use the broom for right job. For the indoor purposes, plastic fiber brooms are efficient to use and cannot be damaged. If you use the traditional or conventional straw broom, then it will not be able to provide effective cleaning during hard weather conditions. If the straw comes in contact with the moisture, it will promote the growth of mold as well as mildew.

The best material for a reusable dust mop head is microfiber, because it’s the most effective at attracting and absorbing dust, and it lasts the longest when cared for properly. Cotton is the worst option because it can rot, it stretches when washed, and it must be treated with chemicals to attract and hold dust. Synthetic microfiber blends have none of those drawbacks. The backing of the dust mop head can also be cotton or synthetic, and you’ll want a synthetic backing for the same reason—cotton stretches when washed and rots as bacteria consume the organic material.

I realize the sweep side of the mop is supposed to be used to collect dust in one place before picking it up like Tony mentioned. However I find the non-locking of the dual action flip mop to be annoying as well. Can you share what this other dust mop you use is?
