I’m a big fan of corn brooms, and this Sweepster broom is a modern version that’s lightweight and easy to use.
The handle is a good length, so it encourages you stay in good posture as you sweep up (no more slouching!).
I’ve been using mine for five months and although the odd bit of plastic does break off the broom still has plenty of life left in it - it’s certainly proving to be more durable that a corn broom and it’s just as effective at sweeping up in the wet as the dry.
It's great that you can change the stiffness of the broom by moving the plastic ring up or down the broom and I also like the fact that you can wash it - handy!
A normal corn broom is usually around £10 and I've found that they tend to last approximately three to four months. At £17.50 the Sweepster offers great value for money - it's showing no signs of wear so far.
