We review the Broomy broom and dustpan kit
by Paige Estigarribia
The Dollar Stretcher was sent a Broomy to facilitate this review. The Dollar Stretcher received no compensation for this review. All opinions expressed are those of the author.
I admit it, sometimes I misplace my dustpan. It isn't one that attaches to my broom, and it tends to periodically disappear in my laundry room. And even when it's there, my broom is leaning against the wall, and my dustpan sits behind it. Sometimes my broom falls over, sometimes it gets in my way when I'm looking for other things, and it certainly takes up space. So when we were sent a Broomy, we were eager to try it out. Could sweeping really be a little more convenient...(and maybe even take up less space too?). Here's our opinion:
A Little About the Broomy
The Broomy is a broom and dustpan that have been innovatively designed to fit together as one piece for easy storage. The Broomy handles telescope. So you can extend or shrink them down to size, for use as a hand broom and dustpan, a short broom and dustpan, or a full-size broom and dustpan. It even has a hook on the back so that you can hang it on the wall, and it is small enough to fit in a drawer, too!
What We Liked About the Broomy
There was a lot we liked about the Broomy! First of all, we really liked how the broom and the dustpan fit together. They click nicely into place. No more worrying about misplacing the dustpan! We also liked how versatile the Broomy is. It can be used as a hand broom or a full-size broom! And when you use it as a full-size broom, you don't have to bend down! The handle is also offset to the side, rather than in the middle, so you can sweep under furniture easily. And we really liked how much space the Broomy saves! This would be perfect for apartments and RVs, or anywhere with limited storage.
What to Think About before Purchasing a Broomy
The only thing we had to get used to regarding the Broomy was the offset handle. It was a little different to use a broom with the handle on the side, rather than in the middle. But after a few sweeps, we got the hang of it, and it worked! The Broomy is available at the Viatek website and also on Amazon, so be sure to check those sites if you're interested.
And that's it! Overall, we found the Broomy to be an innovative addition to household cleaning convenience.
