Cleaning your dustpan and brush isn’t the most glamorous of chores, but it is essential for keeping your home tidy. Not only does regular cleaning ensure that your dustpan is free of dirt and debris, but it also helps to extend the life of the tool. So if you want to make sure that your dustpan and brush are in top shape, follow these simple steps.

Cleaning Your Dustpan and Brush

First, use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe down the inside of the dustpan. If there are any hard-to-remove spots, use a mild cleanser or warm water mixed with dish soap. When wiping down the outside of the dustpan, focus on areas where dirt might have been left behind after sweeping. Wipe away any visible dirt particles with a damp cloth, then dry off with a clean towel.

Next, turn your attention to your broom or brush head. Take out any bristles that may have fallen out during cleaning and check for any signs of wear or tear. If necessary, replace these bristles with new ones—just be sure to match them up with those already in place so as not to disrupt their natural angle. Then use warm water mixed with some liquid dish soap and scrub away at the bristles until they look clean again. Rinse off any remaining residue from the bristles before drying them off completely.

Finally, hang up both pieces (dustpan and broom) in an area where they can air dry without being disturbed by other objects or people passing by. This will help keep them in good condition until you need them again for another round of cleaning around the house!

Cleaning your broom will also have the benefit of keeping dust out of the air and allow a diffuser to perform better!

Why Its Important To Clean Your Broom

Keeping your broom clean is essential for its effectiveness and longevity. Not only can you wash a broom, but you should clean it regularly to remove lint, dust and dirt buildup that can otherwise be difficult to remove from the broom head, handles and bristles.

This is especially important if you have a dirty broom or one with frayed bristles as they won't be able to do their job properly without being properly cleaned. To do this, use a bucket of soapy water, dip the head of the broom in it and swipe it back and forth against the bottom of the bucket. Allow the broom time to soak before rinsing it off with plain water.

How to remove lint from broom

Cleaning your broom bristles is an important part of maintaining your home. To keep your broom in the best condition, you should regularly remove lint build-up from the bristles.

This process can be done easily using a brush and some warm water. Simply dip the bristles into warm water for a few minutes, then use the brush to stroke away any lint or dirt that has gathered. Rinse off with cool water, and repeat if necessary until the bristles are lint-free.
