Put a plastic bag on the broom, all housewives do it: more than just vacuum cleaners

To sweep better you don’t need a vacuum cleaner, just a broom and a plastic bag. Here’s how to do it.

Keeping the floor at home clean is always difficult, especially if there are small children in the house. Dust, hair, dog or cat hair accumulate on the floor and sweeping it every day and in the wrong world is really boring and wastes a lot of time. That’s why there is a method that will help you sweep faster, a homemade trick.

Every day you take care of household chores and there is always some trick that helps you put in less effort. From natural and DIY products to additional items. In any case, we always try to alleviate the tedious cleaning, both dusting and sweeping and washing the floors.

Broom and plastic bag: the trick that changes your cleaning

Many times the broom does not sweep well and causes hair and dirt to adhere to the bristles. But get a plastic bag and this won’t happen again. The only thing left is to put the broom in it and start sweeping.


What you will notice is that this way hair and animal hair will stick to the broom but will not get into the bristles so you will not be forced to remove the dirt with your hands. The material that plastic bags are made of helps adhere hair and fur which you can then simply scoop up and throw away.

How to always have clean floors

Cleaning floors is not always just about dust and hair always on the floor, but you have to choose the right broom and in addition to using a bag as we suggested above, you can also continue using traditional brooms. The choice, however, is not random. In fact, there are several types of brooms, with soft or hard bristles.

Normally the bristle broom allows you to remove the largest dirt from the floor but does not completely eliminate the dust . And in fact, brooms with soft bristles tend especially to raise dust that then ends up on the furniture. For this reason, after having picked up the package it is always better to vacuum.


The vacuum cleaner has the ability to collect even the smallest grains of dust , with this device you will have no problems raising dust and the floor will be clean. But there are also defects here: the vacuum cleaner is heavy, it makes noise and the cable does not always reach everywhere, although lately there are more and more wireless models.

However, if you don’t have a vacuum cleaner, you may want to consider wiping it down with an electrostatic cloth after you’ve removed most of the dirt with the regular broom. These cloths basically do the same thing by capturing all the dust residue that will remain attached to it. And what’s more, when placed on a flat, bristle-free broom, they can reach anywhere, even under the bed or sofa.

In general, using all three methods will allow you to have clean floors everywhere, even in the most hidden areas. It is also important to go room by room and then close the doors to prevent dust from flying around the house and clean the floors every day, especially the rooms where you eat and food debris may fall on the floor.
