Especially for BCC fan Gareth Noall, the wonderfully spooky, yet equally enchanting Moondial by Helen Cresswell. I watched this a couple of months ago, and it still holds up. I recommend you getting it if you can! – Calum

This oil based treatment can cause many short and long-term problems for floors. If too much is used, the floors can become extremely slippery and difficult to clean. Because of the oil, cleaning with a water based solution is less effective. (Water and oil don’t mix) To remove the film, a de-greasing chemical is needed which can cause damage to floor finish.

After that, we applied the criteria to narrow the hundreds sweeping products into the three dozen we called in for testing, which we’ve outlined below. After using the tools at home for six months, and getting more opinions from friends and Wirecutter colleagues, we’ve gotten more intimate with brooms than you’d think was possible. Now I can identify the make and model of any broom I see on the street or TV—a new talent I hope to never lose.

The $25 Casabella Height Adjustable Butterfly Floor Duster also has a great frame, but its height-adjustable pole is heavy, awkward, and unnecessary. Its cover didn’t hold up well in the wash, either; the fuzzy white edges shed a lot, and it wasn’t as good at picking up dust after being washed.

These are the traditional and least expensive type of dust mop. Cotton dust mops have been around for years. Cotton is a natural fiber that works well to “push” large soils and debris but is not very effective for fine dust particles.

How: Houzz user Kara Gilbert sent in this photo of her organized broom closet with a shoe rack on the back of the door — perfect when you need to make a closet work as hard as possible. The shoe rack holds first-aid supplies and toiletries in labeled pouches, while bins on open shelving provide ample storage. A small wall-mounted holder keeps cleaning tools out of the way, and a vacuum with a small footprint sits on the floor.

The position of the ‘Children’s’ Wording was soon changed so that the screen read Children’s BBC in keeping with the correct on-air name. A short musical sting was introduced to accompany the animation.

Philippa Forrester had stayed with Children’s BBC and presented short bursts of Children’s BBC in the mornings as her studies permitted. She also provided holiday cover for the afternoons, becoming the first female presenter to do so since Debbie Flint.

Yep and per our expert- Yes and that’s a good thing! You want your broom to grab the pet hairs instead of them flying all over the place. When you feel like your broom is too full of pet hair, give it a quick wash in your sink or bathtub.

The OXO starts out a little staticky. We witnessed tiny pieces of cat litter jump straight out of the dustpan’s body and cling onto the slope above the red lip. It wasn’t the worst we tested, and by the third use most of the static had dissipated and debris was no longer hurling itself out of the dustpan. (We tried wiping down the most staticky dustpans with a dryer sheet, but didn’t see any improvement. The best solution we found is to keep using the dustpan until the static dissipates.)

Yet this space reopens to the public in the afternoons with a spirited bit of offerings: classic cocktails, with an emphasis on a greater selection of whiskey, scotch and Port. A menu of small bites is available as well.
