This soft cotton dust mop is a hardwood broom on steroids.  This is the same type of broom you see used on wooden basketball floors, gyms etc, but scaled down for residential use.  If you have large, open hardwood floor areas in your family & living spaces, this is the soft dust broom you will want to make quick work of nearly all debris.  The 24″ cotton mop head is removable for cleaning and the handle is telescoping from 42″ to 72″.  Priced around $40, this is a great cleaning investment.

If you hate feeling grit under your bare feet after you just swept the floor, the Quickie Angle Cut has split-tip poly fibers that ensure nothing is left behind when you’re done. It’s very narrow, though, so expect that first pass to take longer than usual.

On a recent afternoon, Flemming joined Fowler and Hamilton on the curling ice here at Westmount Golf and Country Club for a demonstration. They wore matching windbreakers with “SmartBroom: Sweep Better” on the backs.

The O’Cedar 24″ Multi-Surface Push Broom ($23) is not totally perfect, but it is the best outdoor broom for most people. Out of all the brooms sampled, it was the closest to flawless. It has a lot going for it: a sturdy handle, excellent balance for its three-pound weight and 62” length, and an ability to easily move all kinds of materials with its 24-inch-long, 3.5-inch wide head. The head and bristles are synthetic, so you can sweep up wet or dry debris. In the head, an outer row of fine fibers combines with an inner core of coarse fibers. The mix makes it flexible enough to catch bits of dust, but it still has the stiffness and strength to move piles of sand, leaves stuck in the deck, or flighty pine needles. The black metal handle has a hook-hole at the end for storage, and the handle is secured to the head with a unique anti-rotation socket that prevents it from working its way loose (a common source of irritation with these tools). In a product category where a lot of items share a similar set of features, an unusually solid socket really sets this tool apart.

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.

As mentioned above, when used properly, a broom can last years without failing. That said, there are some basic steps you need to take to ensure that your broom and its dustpan work well throughout the course of their working lives.

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.

Yes. The head is totally dishwasher safe, and it can also be washed by hand in the sink, hosed off outside, etc. The handle will collapse to about 34 inches and expand to about 60 inches. You can set it to whatever length you like best within that range. You will be very happy with it’s ability to remove hair from any type of flooring.

Installation is extremely easy and fast. All you need is to fit the provided six screws with anchors and your broom holder will be ready to handle whatever you want to place in the ball grips. You can pull down the holder’s retractable ball rolls for use or push them back if you do not need them. Its versatility and space saving features allow you to install it wherever you want.

Thanks to its 24 inches broom head, this broom can be considered on of the largest out there, especially in this price range. This makes it a very popular choice of broom and one of the best-selling brooms out there today. Soft and reflective bristles on the outside effortlessly sweep away every speck of dust and dirt, while the broom’s inner bristles take care of bigger and heavier dust particles.

The Libman 18” Push Broom ($27) is a decent choice. Light and “bouncy,” it’s easy to push, with noticeably stiff bristles. However, it left enough fine pine-needle debris on the driveway that clearing the mess took three passes, and when I swept up sand, it left a line of sand on the floor every time I put the broom down. You can do better.

The Libman’s 12.5-inch sweeping surface is about an inch and a half wider than the Casabella’s, and both heads have similar depth. Our runner-up has 2,184 bristles—that’s about 25 percent fewer than the Casabella—and those bristles are arranged in 78 diagonal groups with about 28 bristles per group. The Libman’s wider head hastens sweeping, but its lower bristle density and less effective arrangement mean you have to make more sweeps to pick up the same amount of debris as the Casabella. Bottom line: The Casabella is easier to use.

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” 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.

Beyond costs, the Swiffer is just not as effective at cleaning as the O-Cedar dust mop. The Swiffer is effective at picking up dust, dirt, and cat hair, but it can’t get into cracks or corners as well as our pick because it uses flat sheets instead of a textured cloth. Plus, the O-Cedar Dual Action Flip Mop’s head is almost twice the width of the Swiffer’s, so the Swiffer takes nearly twice the time and energy to clean the same space.

When we first dove into broom research, we discovered that no one else reviews brooms, dustpans, or dust mops—individually or as a category. We found a list of best-selling brooms, a slideshow of “the best brooms,” and a Tip of the Day from Consumer Reports that points out that brooms don’t use electricity, but vacuums do. (The more you know!) With so little information out there, the only way to find the best cleaning tools was to get down and dirty with a few dozen of them.

You can ensure your home is clutter free and well organized by using RockBirds T56 broom holder. It is sturdy and versatile allowing you to organize more than just the broom and the mop. It gives you the chance to hold up to 11 items: Five in the friction grips and six on hooks. You can pull the hooks down if you so desire or push them back if there is not need to use them.

Even a great broom needs a dust mop to help finish the job, and the $19 O-Cedar Dual-Action Microfiber Flip Mop is the best we tested. It held more dirt than any other dust mop in our test, by picking up the most debris—this was the only one that could grab a full tablespoon of flour—and by cleaning the most surface area before requiring a wash. Its large, double-sided head is big enough to work quickly, yet nimble enough to get dust from corners, with a 17.5- by 5.5-inch footprint that cleans as much area as six Swiffer sheets (and more effectively, too) between each wash. The chenille microfiber surface is the ideal blend of dust mop materials, and it’s held up well over months of cleaning and laundering. After about 100 washings, the head will need replacement, and the O-Cedar’s $7 to $10 refills are cheaper and better than the competition.

I’m assuming you already purchased a broom, but as an FYI for anyone else reading this, I ordered from Amazon on May12th and received it on the 25th, even though it said 2-5 months. Amazon is generally really conservative on their estimates.

And while it might sound ironic after mentioning the potential longevity of a broom, one should also not overlook how readily they can be disposed of and replaced. As mentioned, even the most expensive broom and dustpan set you are likely to purchase will cost only thirty or forty dollars at most; you can get several years of use out of the set and then dispose of and replace it.

Casabella— is a company headquartered in New York, and founded in 1991. They sell household cleaning tools and supplies, as well as kitchen gadgets. They try to make tools for everyday tasks that are functional, but also attractive.

The head is small—just 12 inches—which means it will take longer to sweep large garage floors and decks than it would with the O’Cedar broom. But some users consider that small footprint a benefit. According to one a Garrett Wade reviewer, it’s “much easier to handle than a push broom.” If you’d prefer an easy-handling, good-looking natural-fiber broom over the efficient-but-astroturf-green bristles of the O’Cedar, this is your pick.
