Great for floors, under furniture and hard-to-reach corners. Washable, flagged-tip bristles sweep even the finest of particles and are unaffected by water, alkalies, acids, grease or oil and won't wear down, break or fall out. Solid bristle block means no chance of separation from shroud. Deeper thread insert to prevent breaking of handle tip. Sturdier, thicker handle adds extra durability. Wider 14" sweeping surface for faster cleaning. Plastic angled shroud has patented handle-locking mechanism.
