Caring for Your Broom

Henry’s brooms are designed to be functional and decorative.  Depending on how they are used and how you take care of them, they should last for several years.  There are two things you can do to take care of them.

1 – All of Henry’s brooms have a loop or a hook for hanging.  If you do not hang your broom from the loop or hook, it will bend out of shape and not perform as well as it should.

2 – It is helpful to get your broom wet occasionally. You can run the faucet over it or dunk it in a bucket of water two or three times a year.  After you get it wet, hang it up by the loop or hook while it dries.  Hang it so the broom corn fiber is pointed down.  The excess water must be able to drip out, NOT back into the tight area where the broom fibers are braided, woven or attached to the handle with wire.

Following the above two practices will extend the life of your broom.
