Lime Stationary Upright Sweep Set
Upright Sweep Set
Years ago, maybe 10 years ago, I bought one of these upright sweep sets and loved it. As the bristles on the broom part wore down I wanted to replace it but I could not remember where I had bought it. I bought replacements at other stores and was never satisfied and kept going back to use my old original from the Container Store. Finally, I received a sales flyer recently and saw this set on sale. I rushed to the store to get it, it's the best by far and lasts forever. Get one, you won't be sorry.

Great for lizards but NOT for dirt
I should have listened to some of the other reviews. I bought 3 of these to replace old ones that had cracked (different brand that I can't find). The others were the same concept but it was effortless to sweep up dirt and kitty litter. This one takes all kinds of contortions with trying to flatten the rubber edge in order to get the dirt into the pan instead of sweeping under it. It shouldn't be that hard and most of the time I have to give up because it just won't work. Even the broom seems a little warped.
On the plus side they work pretty good for scooping up the lizards my cat brings as "gifts"... but that isn't why I bought them. I'm very disappointed because this could have been the perfect product. It was a lot of money for 3 worthless gadgets.

conveinent and easy to use
I bought two of these upright sweet sets while they were on sale a few weeks ago, one for upstairs and one for downstairs. So far so good. They're easy to use and the size is great - not too short and not too tall. Plus the handle at the top of the dustpan is movable - so you can put it at a right angle which makes it easier to carry around and use.

I sweep more now!
I really love this upright dust pan and mini broom. My home is all hardwood floors. Before, I would sweep each room and leave a pile in the corner, but it would take me a few days (I know..) to get out the small dustpan and clean it up. I keep this set handy and it so easy to use that I donâ¿¿t procrastinate sweeping up my piles anymore. Also, I can quickly hit dirty spots (like under the kitchen table - I have messy kids). Overall my floors are cleaner.
The only thing I donâ¿¿t like is that the adjustable handle on the dust pan rotates down 90 degrees. It is supposed to be an advantage, but mostly, I find it bending when I donâ¿¿t want it to.
