Back pain can make bending over to sweep unbearable, but luckily the Casabella Quick ‘N Easy Upright enables you to keep floors spick-and-span without putting strain on your spine. The dustpan stays upright on its own, so all you have to do is corral the mess.
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.
Hi there! As Tony said above, we didn’t include upright dustpans in this guide because our survey showed that readers don’t want one. We also decided to dismiss them for a few other reasons: Handheld dustpans are much smaller and easier to store when they’re not being used. Handheld dustpans also provide better leverage, so you can get the lip flush with the floor, letting less dust slip past when you’re sweeping. And finally, getting up close and personal when you’re sweeping means you’re much less likely to miss finer particles, leading to a cleaner house.
Wall organizers help you take advantage of the space around a room and even overhead, so you can find what you need at eye level or above and keep clutter off the floor. From peg boards to bike hooks, Ace can help you find a place for everything in your home, basement and garage. For additional storage solutions, you may even want to consider incorporating heavy duty shelving and water-resistant totes.
Glove sizing is not universal, so try them on. Look for specific men’s and women’s sizing. A one size fits all approach may be fine for some jobs, but gloves that are too big can slip off (often at the worst time). A glove that is too small or doesn’t fit right can cause something you are trying to avoid – blisters.
If you don’t have the time to spare and read the buying guide and sift through the reviews compiled by our researchers, but you still want to find what the best broom and dustpan is, this short paragraph can help you. After a close examination of all products, we have come to the conclusion that the OXO Good Grips Sweep 12125800 is the best due to its ease of use and features. Perfect for a quick clean-up, without having to worry about difficult to reach places, this convenient product can easily extend to the size of a full-broom in order to face with ease any sweeping task. The feathered texture of the broom makes it efficient in grabbing dust and dirt. If the OXO Good Grips Sweep 12125800 is unavailable, we recommend the Casabella Quick ‘N Easy 20703 as a good alternative.
The biggest flaw is a complaint you see popping up in roughly 10 percent of the Amazon reviews (and a few at Home Depot, too): the 60” steel handle snaps off at the head. That may be because the screw-end of the handle isn’t made of steel; it’s plastic—a lighter plastic than the “resin” plastic head. This particular break makes it difficult to replace the handle because you can’t unscrew the portion of the handle that’s still stuck in the broom head. You could probably use pliers to twist it out, as Wirecutter editor Harry Sawyers suggested to me, but you really shouldn’t have to do that to a broom, even if it is cheap. The steel handle has plastic threads, and you could potentially replace this handle with a new one that uses metal threads, and still come out at a lower price than the O’Cedar. Or you could get lucky and buy one that doesn’t unexpectedly break.

The $10 Casabella Wayclean Wide Angle Broom is the best indoor broom we found. It’s the single best sweeper, with a bristle quantity, design, texture, and density that no other broom could match. The broom’s 2,880 bristles (by our count) are packed more densely and distributed more evenly than other brooms we tested. Combined with their flagged (split) tips, which excel at picking up fine, dusty debris, the bristles cleaned spills of cat litter, flour, and rice better than any other broom. Those PVC bristles are also thinner than those on other brooms—at 0.491 millimeter thick, they’re half as fat as some competing bristles, which makes the broom feel soft and pliable. The Casabella also has the best balance and the most comfortable handle of any broom we tested—and it is the least expensive broom in the mix. It doesn’t come with a dustpan, but we have that covered.
Don’t put your broom away wet. Corn brooms will mildew or rot, and they shouldn’t be used to sweep wet debris in the first place. Synthetic brooms won’t rot, but they can end up smelling… peculiar. Dry out your broom before you put it back in the closet.
The dustpan is equipped with a pivot that will make you say goodbye to those frustrating moments when you accidentally spill the dust you have just collected. Just move the dustpan in an upwards position and you are set to go.
The Casabella excels, in spite of the Libman’s wider head, because the Casabella’s sweeping surface is exponentially denser, with more even distribution and a higher total bristle count. Plus, each of those 2,880 bristles has a flagged end to help it trap dust and hair. Cleaning expert Leslie Reichert told us flagged bristles are best for indoor cleaning and dry messes because they “pick up small particles much better and don’t tend to leave much behind.” In practice, the Casabella took fewer sweeps than the Libman to gather a into a pile and left less residue behind, which balances out the Libman’s advantage of having a wider head.
Our pick is well-designed, great at sweeping, and comfortable to use. (It’s pretty cute too, not that anyone is buying a broom for its dashing good looks.) On top of all that, it’s the least expensive broom we tested—only $10, and that’s cheaper even than the other brooms that also lacked a dustpan. Our survey found that most people are willing to pay up to $20 for a great broom. The Casabella costs only half that, and it’s the best of the bunch.

Bought 4 of these and 2 are stuffed with garden tools in the new shed. They need anchoring to a wall or stud to support top heavy tools and the tools have to go through both openings in the top and bottom grids. They are a great value for their intended use.
