For indoors, choose one with finer bristles to pick up smaller dirt particles.
- For outdoors, go for stronger, stiffer bristles, which work better to clear porous surfaces.
- To sweep, hold the broom like a canoe paddle, with one hand on top of the handle and other hand towards the middle. Push your hands in the opposite direction to get the most out of every stroke.
- Sweep from the outside in so that you don’t miss any spots and move the dirt to the center of the room, where it will be easy to pick up.

- Store brooms with the handle down. It makes them easier to find and protects the bristles.

- Pick the proper dustpan. Minimize that annoying line of dust by choosing a dustpan with a rubber edge.
