OXO Extendable Sweep Set Review & Giveaway

 I am all for any product that makes the housework easier, its a boring job but it needs doing. Having 4 children means I spend lots of time sweeping up little piles or mess. Since I was diagnosed with sciatica I have found using the dust pan and brush difficult as bending down really does me no favours.
The brand new product from Oxo Good Grips is the perfect solution, the Extendable Sweep Set
is priced at £30 and I love it!
Its packed with some really great features which make the boring job of sweeping the floor so much easier, I would say more fun but nobody really likes cleaning do they?
The first feature I like is the extendable broom handle, you simply twist at the orange point on the broom and you can slide to pole out from between 88cm up to 135cms, so its perfect if you are like me and Dave, he's really tall and I'm quite small. The top of the broom has a really soft easy grip handle, making for a comfortable grip when using the broom. The broom is also light weight aluminium so weighs nothing at all, when retracted it clips neatly onto the dustpan for easy storage.
The full sized broom and large dustpan make it perfect for sweeping large areas, the whole of our downstairs is wood flooring and we can just go from room to room with the sweep set without having to empty the dustpan constantly.
The broom head has a slight angled edge, making it great for getting in and out of tight corners and the feathered soft tipped bristles actually grab dust and dirt instead of pushing them around the room.
One thing I always notice with my current broom is that my hair is constantly tangled up in the bristles and its not a very nice job pulling it all out. The teeth on the rim of the dustpan are for pulling the broom through and it releases all the caught up dust and hair, its ingenious and I think all dustpans now need one!
Miss S is a paper ripper, whenever she sees paper lying around she has the compulsion to tear it up! The long handle broom was perfect for sweeping it all up and the large dustpans was more than capable for holding all the paper.
The dustpan locks into an upright position which is great for storage as I mentioned above, but it is also great for emptying as the contents don't just fall out as its locked into position. I love this set and its made my life just that bit easier. If you have back problems especially you will love it as it eliminates any bending or stretching. But even if you don't it just makes the job that bit easier.

I can't stand brushing up and having the stuff blow everywhere out of the dustpan again! I was just talking about these dustpan designs the other day and saying how they should all have that undercover bit to hold everything in!

    75. I hate sorting the washing in general, I can never seem to carry it back up the stairs when it's washed and wet as easily as I can bring it down to load the machine. Dropping socks everywhere. Then it takes ages to stretch out properly and hang up, ages to dry, then popping it all in the ironing basket, it's just such a never ending process!
