I had my floor sweeping utensils in another thread, about cleaning the kitchen. I'll make more photos of another floor and then put them here (too). Soon(ish)

Swept some floors!


Floor after fluffying-up some wool for filling a pillow


Swept up all of that stuff and threw it out in the garden


Floor of my sleeping room after removing the carpet (look well!)


Tools for sweeping the floor


Trying to sweep the floor and make a photo at the same time!


Look, all this dust came from that floor! Now the floor is clean.
To see more of it: photos will be posted soon in the BB for cleaning a rug

My floor's gotten out of hand.

I was taught that to sweep a floor, you start with the ceiling and move down.  Gravity takes care of those cobwebs, detritus you wipe off the table, and litter that spills out of the litter box.  Once you've got that all sorted, sweeping time!
