Broom Care & Lore

Broom Care

Always hang your broom. Occasionally dip the ends of the broom into warm water to restore moisture. If your broom starts looking splayed, dip it in water, reshape and then tie with twine or a rubber band overnight. Be sure to dry thoroughly. A well cared for broom will last many years.
