JML Rubber Broom
Advantages: Slim, neat design. Does every job a broom needs to do and more.
I needed to get a new brush as mine was getting old and had lot's most of its bristle's.
I am a little bit of a neat freak and as I have hard flooring on the whole downstairs of our home I needed a good brush that will work well from tiles to laminate and won't scratch.
I was in Focus DIY store buying paint and stopped at the JML stand that they have and noticed this broom. It caught my eye because it's quite a vivid Yellow and looked quite unusual as its quite slim and neat in design so I thought that I would give it a go.
Design of the Broom -
The broom has a long Yellow telescopic handle which can increase the length of the handle, you just need to loosen the middle of the broom, increase or decrease the length and tighten it up. This makes it great if you are small or tall and comes into its own for doing windows and your car. Windows! I hear you say. You can't use a broom on your windows? Well all will become clear later on.
The actual sweeping part of the broom is made from a durable rubber and the bristles are all made from the same rubber which while sturdy is actually quite soft and will not scratch the surface that you are sweeping.
As it's quite a slim design it means that you can easily store the broom away and it takes hardly any space.
The Functions of the Broom -
This isn't any old broom; this is a JML wonder broom (That was my Marks & Spencer Voice over there)
One of the many great things about this broom is that you can use it on carpets. The rubber prongs are quite tightly packed which means that it's great for sweeping fluff and pet hair of the carpets. I use mine on the stairs in between hovering time and it not only gets all the fluff or hair it lifts the pile up and keeps my carpets looking great.
I don't have any pets but my friend also has the broom.......and three dogs and two cats. It was my friend that told me to try it. She said that it's the best broom ever for removing pet hairs. She uses it on her sofa, chairs, carpets and floors and said while most people may grab personal effects and photos if their house was on fire she would grab her Wonder Broom. No, really she did. I nearly pointed out that there would be no carpets to sweep but thought better of it.
Unlike your average broom the rubber prongs don't harbour any germs or bacteria.
Sweeping the laminate and tiles is so fast and easy with this broom, you need to brush towards you rather than away due to the way the broom is designed as the bristles or on a slight slant.
I was amazed at how much the brush swept up. It literally picks up everything in its path and while yes that's what a broom is for you know how it is, you've usually leave behind a few bits of fluff or something. The broom didn't scratch or harm any the laminate or the ceramic tiles.
Windows and Cars-
This is where the broom comes into its own for me. I am quite little at 5 foot 2 and I always struggle to clean my car on the roof. Well not anymore thanks to the wonderbroom!
I have to be honest and say that I was a little unsure about using the broom wet on my car as I was quite worried that it may scratch the car but I'm pleased to say that it didn't leave a mark on my car.
The ability to use it wet is great. I just covered the car in shampoo and scrubbed away with the wonderbroom. I was able to reach all places and with the handy telescopic handle I was able to clean the roof of the car quickly and easily.
I have a conservatory on the back of my home and it's a pain in the rear end to clean the windows and using the wonderbroom did not save me a huge amount of time but it was certainly easier and less hard work and obviously I could reach the top. (Wink) It is also brilliant for cleaning the top of the conservatory as you can give it a good scrub and this also applies to the PVC, it brought mine up lovely and much easier than doing it all with a cloth.
I used it to clear the snow and ice of the path in the winter and it worked great and I could leave my shovel in the garage. It was also brilliant for getting the snow of the car roof and windows in the morning and left no makes or scratches at all and this also meant that I didn't have to drive to work looking like a snowman as usually I end up covered while clearing the car.
The Garden -
The wonder Broom is really handy for using in and around the garden. I have used it to give the decking a good clean and it got all the mud and marks off. It is great for sweeping up the grass cuttings or leaves and a general tidy up.
The best thing about the broom for me is that it does all those jobs in and around the house. I do give it a good wash in soapy water if I have used it outside and it still looks brand new. You can also put the head in the dishwasher to clean it.
I have recently bought the Wonder brush. This is a handheld version of the broom and I bought it to clean out the rabbit hutch and its brilliant. It gets all the mess out and then I can wet the brush and give it a good scrub clean. the brush is priced at only £2.99
Cost and Availability -
The Wonder Broom costs just £7.99 and is available from JML Direct and online. It can also be purchased in many stores that stock JML products including - Argos. Homebase. Wilkinson's and Asda.

Summary: A true multitasking product.
