In our survey, we found that most people want a handheld dustpan, not a stand-up dustpan. Sixty percent preferred to use a broom to sweep debris directly into the dustpan—no brush needed. Among those who did want a brush, most like a long, flat brush instead of a whisk brush. Cleaning expert Leslie Reichert agrees, and told us she’d “never had much luck with a whisk brush teamed with a dustpan” and prefers “a very soft, thick brush.” Good brush bristles have a lot in common with brooms: They should be synthetic, flagged, and soft enough to grab dust but not floppy enough to fling it around.
Our pick’s best feature is its contoured rubber lip. The red thermoplastic rubber lip is molded to the polypropylene underside of the dustpan, which makes the edge sit flush with the floor. Most dustpans, like the O-Cedar Anti-Static dustpan, have a flat or wedge-shaped piece of rubber attached to the edge of the dustpan. This type of lip acts as a slope but leaves a hollow space underneath for dirt to get trapped, so the dustpan must be scooted back and the pile re-swept. Several panel members noted the OXO took only one sweep to get an entire pile of cat litter from the floor to the dustpan.

Same junk as before. The handle attachment point is the same and breaks after about a year. It breaks at the point where it swivels and mounts to the dust mop head. Also, the microfiber mop itself is re-designed and does not pick up dust and pet hair as good as the yellow mop head. I know this is trivial stuff, but when you use this product day in and day out, you want this simple item to just work…..and it doesn’t……

I have fourteen items hanging from one of these and I could hang a couple more from the back if I bought extra hooks. You could hang more if you put hookeyes in the handles of tools with wooden handles and hung them right-side-up. You could also hang more items if you got some more of the really long hooks–they only send one with the kit.

We know that every grain and seed, is a record of ancient time. A promise of all that’s yet to be and what I claim as mine….

Within all forms is locked the path of future, present and past. The Ancient Ones who spin our fates Lay Blessings on us at last. Having planted once my future goals. They now come to fruition. I spoke aloud and Goddess heard. Giving birth to my ambition. I work and weave new patterns to my life, I open my heart to greatest good. And banish pain and strife.

By Sword and chalice, hoof and horn. The Harvest now is birthed ~

Proper care and maintenance of microfiber dust mop heads is a little more involved, because microfiber is tricky to wash. Our expert from Merry Maids, Debra Johnson, has some advice on keeping it clean between washings: She takes the cloth outside or places it in a plastic bag, then shakes it to get dust out without releasing it into the air in your home.

I got a pink and blue mesh sack. Which is great because I got it for my boy and my girl! They love them. My son has it hanging next to his bed from the ceiling and he has been putting his hats in the higher tiers and his remotes and game controllers and tablet/cell phone in the bottom tier. Awesome quality and seems durable enough. Perfect size too for small things and stuffed animals. Would definitely recommend these and will most definitely be buying some more!!

The only way to improve a burger seasoned with McCormick Grill Mates Hamburger Seasoning is the same thing that improves any food:… bacon! Cook bacon on the grill with this easy-to-handle rack. The rack holds up to 6 strips of bacon and cooks them in a hanging position, allowing the grease to drip away from the bacon and into a well, where it can be emptied easily and prevent flare-ups while cooking on the grill. Your bacon will be browned and crispy without any mess! Drape bacon strips over the top of the rack so that the ends hang down toward the grease wells. Place rack on the grill over indirect heat and cook until the strips are crispy and brown. Use heat-resistant gloves and grip the rack’s handles to remove from the grill, and place on a heat-resistant surface. CARE: To preserve and extend the useful life of this BBQ tool or accessory, wash with a mild dishwashing soap, rinse and dry immediately. Do not use abrasive scrubbers. May also be washed safely in a dishwasher. WARNING: ENTIRE UNIT WILL GET HOT. USE OVEN MITT OR GLOVE WHEN HANDLING. USE CAUTION WHEN HANDLING HOT GREASE, IT CAN BURN AND/OR CATCH FIRE. read more

The OXO Good Grips Clip-On Dustpan has a few useful design touches that set it apart from the competition. Most dustpans have an edge-to-edge ridge, but our pick’s ridge tapers near the sides of the large polypropylene body to make it easier to empty the dustpan into the trash. This design foiled our original water capacity test—the liquid flowed out the sides—but solid debris was no problem. Our pick easily held a half cup of rice because of its large capacity and 1.3-centimeter-high ridge, a test some dustpans failed.

The plans are spot on. Appreciate the cutting notes for the boards. I used pre-cut 2×2 sheets of plywood from Home Cheapo. I added a set of wheels on the bottom. I have this in a corner by the front of my garage door and the wheels allow me to simple roll it out and access any tool I need. I had some left over stain so I used that you make it look richer. Too fancy for the garage? The thing is solid and does not tip or get top heavy, something that I was concerned about with the store models.
