Carpet Sweeping with a Hair Brush

Posted on: April 8, 2012

I have a basket full of old brushes and combs that I hate to throw away because as a child of the 60’s, we were taught to recycle and reuse everything.  Today I was doing a little Spring Cleaning and my worse chore is vacuuming the stairs. Although we remove our shoes in the laundry room the stairs are always dusty and quite noticeable to me everyday.

Lugging the Electrolux canister vacuum up and down and positioning it on the steps, hoping it doesn’t fall keeps me from using it every week. Today I used an old brush to sweep the stairs, eliminating the need to plug, lug and move the vacuum up and down and as an added benefit it was great exercise!

This is a great idea, I agree lugging on the vacuum cleaner is frustrating and you don’t want to
hurt yourself while cleaning. I will use this technique as well. Have a Blessed Easter!!
