Wilkinson Dust Pan and Brush Set
Advantages: Easy to use, dustpan gets low to floor, brush is strong and effective.
Having a hard working husband, a cat and a large extended family means that I never quite feel like the battle for clean floors has been won. I can vacuum my floors, mop them over and then ten minutes later someone will arrive for a surprise visit and I'll soon be left with mess, crisp crumbs or other general rubbish that comes with having small children in your home. Because of this I have a long handled dustpan & brush (for sweeping up a few crumbs and bits) and then a small handheld dustpan & brush, this one, that I normally use for breakages or sweeping up items that I need to be sure are completely removed from the floor (play doh for example). I'm not entirely sure how much I paid for this, around 75-80p if I remember correctly quite a while ago now, however you can pick this up for just 84p so it is a bargain still anyway.
This dustpan & brush is simple to store. The brush clips in to the dustpan by going over the handle of the dustpan and it takes just a couple of seconds to put these two items together for storage to ensure that they are always ready to use when I want them. I have had a dustpan & brush previously however I lost the brush eventually and after finally buying this set, maybe six months ago, I found the brush when tidying up my hall cupboards by which point I'd already thrown away the dustpan! I like a dustpan & brush that goes together and this is very handy for me to just grab from my cupboard under the sink and set to work when something needs sweeping up. You also have a cut out in the ends of the items so that you can hang them up if you want to but this isn't something I've ever thought of doing as I have lots of space in my cleaning cupboards.
These items are made from plastic but they are nice and strong. The dustpan sits close to the floor and it is easy enough to brush items on to it ready for putting in the bin. The rubber edge helps with this and mine hasn't become worn or damaged despite regular use after the last few months. The pan sits low to the floor and tight against it and I don't have to grip it too hard to brush everything in to it with a step inside meaning you can lift the pan up and the items you've swept up will be protected from falling back out all over the place again. The brush itself is strong and the handle is easy to grip too. The nylon bristles are lasting well and they are strong and long too. I have only had a couple of bristles fall out the whole time that I have used this and the bristles haven't started to flair outwards lots yet either. This brush works very well at sweeping up everything that I need to whether it's broken glass or just some bread or crisp crumbs. I am able to clear up most mess in just one trip to the rubbish bin because the dustpan is quite a reasonable size and this pleases me no end.
Obviously because this is a dustpan and brush you need to get down low to use it, however, I do have a long handled dustpan & brush if I don't need to bend down and check that everything has been cleared up. I mainly use this for sweeping up crumbs around my coffee or dining table after the kids have visited or when I am clearing up something that I need to be certain has been fully removed, such as glass, in which case I would always get down to almost eye level to ensure that no small shards have been missed before then running the vacuum over to be sure. I am going to give this dustpan and brush 5 out of 5 stars as it is everything that I expect from a dustpan and brush.
Summary: A fantastic dustpan and brush for under £1.00 from Wilkinsons!
