How Are Brooms Made?

Brooms are made of stiff fibers attached to a cylindrical handle. The fibers can be made of plastic, hair, corn husks, or other materials. One of the most common natural materials for brooms is broomcorn, a variety of sorghum grass that has long, tasseled stalks. Broomcorn is harvested and dried, then bundled and sewn into a flat shape. The handle can be made of wood, metal, or plastic. Brooms are used for sweeping floors, walls, and other surfaces.

What is a Dustpan and How to Make it?

Dustpans are cleaning utensils that are used to collect dust and dirt from the floor. They are usually made of metal or plastic and have a flat scoop and a handle. Some dustpans have a hinged design that allows them to be attached to a long stick. Dustpans are often used with brooms or brushes to sweep up debris.
To make a dustpan out of sheet metal, you need to cut a rectangular piece of metal, fold up one end to form the lip and attach a handle to the other end. You can use scissors, duct tape, glue, and a drill to make the dustpan
