Tool Tip: Step On It Dustpan0

 Mr. Clean Step-on Dust Pan

My wife gave me a hard time about this one. And I’ll admit, it seems like a gimmick. But here’s the thing – after any messy job, I often find myself wishing the cleanup fairy would come along, so I just could go have a beer. She never does. So, I’m on my own to make cleanup easier.

The physics of it are simple – sometimes debris is heavy, and it doesn’t sweep easy with one hand on the dustpan and one on the broom. Being able to stand on the dustpan means two-handed sweeping – allowing you to sweep, for example, more chunks of drywall and dust into each dustpan load. You get to the couch and that beer that much sooner, and your back will thank you, too.

Step on It Dustpan

For ten bucks or so when I was at the hardware store, and even cheaper here,  I could stomach the “Step On It” name and the Mr. Clean guy’s condescending grin. Gimmick or not, it works.
