To learn what makes a good broom, dust mop, and dustpan, we interviewed Debra Johnson, a home-cleaning expert who has worked with Merry Maids since 1997. In addition to her firsthand cleaning expertise, she works with the Merry Maids Franchise Cleaning Council to research and improve the cleaning equipment the company uses. We also talked to Green Cleaning Coach Leslie Reichert, a housekeeping expert who teaches people how to clean effectively and in environmentally friendly ways. Then, we surveyed hundreds of Wirecutter readers to find out what they love (and hate) about their own brooms.

Steal space-saving design tricks such as taking advantage of wall space to hang tools and having areas beneath workstations double as storage. Here, the recycling bins tuck into the nook left on the exterior by the workshop table. Your turn: Show us your garden shed in the Comments below.

A new animated ident appeared in September 1991. This was computer-animated and was played in from recordable laserdisc, which was the format then being used to play the BBC1 and BBC2 symbols. The original version of the music used on the ident was not particularly distinctive and was replaced by a much more upbeat suite of music in April 1992. Some of the cuts of the new music included spoken lyrics, including Tell that aardvark it’s a wrap! and Essential viewing coming up. The new ident was augmented by the unveiling of new neon signage in the Broom Cupboard and on the set used for the morning birthdays links.

There are many different variations of dust mops, but I am going to focus on 3 common types. Cotton, Synthetic and Microfiber. I have used all of these over the years for dust mopping. Some are better than others, but this should help you know and understand the difference.

Shoe organizers, plastic bins or baskets and a few strategically placed hooks and shelves will help you to create a beautiful mud room area even if you don’t have a traditional mud room.

It’s hardly as if London would be alone in housing people so compactly. Tokyo residents live contentedly in spaces that make the Knightsbridge janitor’s room look positively palatial. If they can lodge in eight-foot-long ‘coffin apartments’ with no room to stand up, surely Londoners are grown-up enough to choose whether they want to spend the working week in a bedsit in SW1, or endure the hell of a daily commute from some far-distant postcode where they can actually afford a house.

We tested the Casabella against 13 other brooms by sweeping a half cup of flour, cat litter, and rice, and our pick was the most effective at sweeping all three types of debris. It left the least residue behind when sweeping up the tiniest particles of flour and litter, and was especially capable at getting dust up out of cracks in the floor. It was, simply put, the best sweeper we tested.

What really helped was when I learned that you can slide the grip further up the shaft to a more natural gripping position. It’s still a little shorter than I’d find ideal, so my hands are a bit close together for super efficient sweeping, but it hasn’t proved to be a major problem.

A new phone-in game appeared at Easter 1992 and remained a fixture for quite some time afterwards. It was devised and coded by BBC Special Projects and was called Maggot Moments. The star of the game, Mervyn the Maggot, was guided around a maze by callers shouting directions. The game ended when time ran out or when a marauding crow caught up with Mervyn, and prizes were awarded according to the number of apples munched during the game.

Even the smallest spaces can help you to get organized. If you have a narrow space beside the garage door, why not utilize that space with a metal cabinet or shelving system? The key is to use as much space as you can to get things put away. A rolling cart that will fit under a workbench is a great way to keep things handy when you need them and out of sight when you don’t. Via: BHG – Storage-Packed Space

Children’s BBC was produced on a shoestring budget and although two small studios were available within the Presentation department at Television Centre, the expense involved in their daily operation would be prohibitive. And so Children’s BBC was presented from a continuity suite, a small room adjoining the BBC1 Presentation Control Room (officially known as Network Control One, or NC1. This suite was the usual home of the continuity announcer, who would announce programmes out-of-vision and do his or her own vision mixing.

In fact, weathered surfaces are what make those old metal rakes and battered watering cans so desirable, oftentimes for uses other than those for which they were originally designed. The head of a rake, for instance, can double as a wineglass holder, with crystal stems steadied between the tines. Fitted with a dollar-store vase filled with fresh-cut blooms, an old, leaky watering can could serve as a rustic centerpiece on a patio table or a dining room buffet.

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.

and needed another like a hole in the head but after reading about the Casabella WayClean I wanted to give it a try. Ordered straight from Casabella and it arrived two days later.While it is a tad too short compared to the Black & Decker I really liked the way it cleaned my hardwood floors, so it’s my first choice.

The O-Cedar’s cover isn’t the easiest to remove—that honor goes to the Full Circle Mighty Mop and the Scotch-Brite Microfiber Floor Mop, which have convenient folding mechanisms but were worse at cleaning. Use caution when unsticking the O-Cedar’s Velcro—that can send a puff of pollutants into the air. (Other dust mops with full Velcro heads, like the Simplee Cleen and the Bona, had a particularly bad problem with this.) Once the Velcro is gently undone, slip the cover off the frame and throw it straight in the wash.

Both the dustpan and brush have matching holes to hang the set when it’s not in use, but they’re a little narrow and might not hang on thicker hooks. Without the brush, the Target dustpan can clip to our recommended broom, but it doesn’t fit as securely as the OXO Good Grips Clip-On dustpan and can warp the Casabella’s bristles.
