Save money on brooms and make them more thrift friendly by
protecting the bristles. Always store your broom with the bristles pointed
up. Keep plastic bristles clean by soaking them in soap and water for 15
minutes. Rinse in water to clean off the soap, and hang to dry.
Here are a few more frugal tips for your brooms.
- When possible use one of your
vacuum attachment to remove floor debris. It will do a
better job of
getting into corners and sucking up all the dirt and dust on the floor, and save
wear-and-tear on the bristles of your broom.
- Avoid getting your broom wet.
- Brooms with plastic bristles
will last longer and they will not shed.
