Sometimes, using a vacuum cleaner is impractical or impossible. There’s still a place in the home for the traditional dustpan and brush! This guide suggests which situations might require the specialist attentions of a dustpan and brush, as well as explaining how to get rid of dust quickly and effectively with these trusty tools. You’ll also learn our top five tips for getting the most out of your dustpan and brush.
When something made of glass is broken, use a long handled dustpan and brush if possible to keep your distance from the glass fragments. Alternatively, carefully crouch down with a standard set to sweep up the larger pieces. For the smaller pieces, you can use a vacuum cleaner, but only a brush will reach those out-of-the-way crevices and corners. If the floor is hard, rather than carpet, you can pour a little bit of water and sweep this along carefully to shift any remaining glass shards into your dustpan! This also makes it possible for you to mop the floor effectively. Ensure that you wear shoes while sweeping and take care not to step on the broken glass.
This will sweep up any leftover crumbs and dust, and cut down on the number of times you need to wheel out the vacuum cleaner!
A long handled dustpan and brush can easily do the job of sweeping up hairs and dust from your tiled bathroom floor.

Now that you know when, where, and how to use your dustpan and brush – go out and keep your household dust-free the natural and eco-friendly way!
