Don Aslett's Set of 2 Rubber Brooms w/Telescoping Poles
Should heed the reviews...
Horrible......had owned a similar broom from a big box store, and used it faithfully for over 9 years to clean snow from car. It finally rusted shut, so thought it was time for a new one. Saw the two-fer and it sounded like a good deal. Not at all.
Neither one would stay at the telescoped length; they just flopped back and forth. I will go back to the store I bought the original one from and hope they still sell them. These are going back!
I really liked these brooms when I got them. They cleaned well inside and out and were great for taking snow off the car. Unfortunately, one broke within two months of using it and the other broke two months ago. When you apply pressure the pole snaps off the bottom. QVC should not carry this product. Don't buy them,
NOT GOOD AT ALL!!!
I rarely write reviews but I just had to on these brooms. They are awful, they really are worthless. So sorry I wasted my money on these.
I had a rubber broom for many years and I worked it until it couldn't sweep any more so I was very happy when I saw them in QVC., so I ordered the item, Everything went fine for the first couple of months but it fell out of my hand going down the stairs (7 steps stairs) and the rubber sweeper broke off from the pole. The part you screw into the pole just snapped and broke! Can't release neither part from each end. Figure that out... So sorry to have purchased this and also very surprised since QVC usually has very good items. Not this time.
Threw Out My Old Brooms
These brooms are great. I had to spend a little time unscrewing and readjusting the handles for height, but once I caught on, I tightened them real good, and no problems at all. 1 is for indoors and the other for cleaning snow off the cars, and we no longer have to worry about scratching the car paint. Yesterday I had to sweep up a broken glass vase and this broom worked amazingly!
would be great
so anxious to receive but they don't stay together at the center so....going back. no packing slip include, nor a mailing/return label. any suggestions before return label arrives , let it be known. left one star or my review would not be accepted.
Super Rubber Rake
When I purchased these brooms I asked sales representative if it would work on my shag
area rug. She told me she did not think it would work on the type of rug...however, it works beautifully on the rug & I could not be more pleased. Please recommend this broom instead of rake which is normally used on this kind of rug.
Good depending on what the task is
Overall I gave these 3 Stars. I believe that it depends on what you plan to use the brooms for if you will be happy or not. I bought these for 4 different tasks, see below on how they did for each task.
1) Getting the cat hair off of large area rugs. This failed horribly at this. My husband and I both tried this and rewatched the video on how to do this, neither one of us got one hair up using this. It appears that it works well in the demo since they just put the hair on top of the rug, but not so well for normal hair on the carpet. Would not recommend it for this, and gave it -0- stars for this use.
2) Sweeping the garage. This it is great at. I’m exceedingly happy. It works just like shown on air, gets all the dirt in one sweep and leaves nothing behind. The big plus for this over a normal broom is there truly is No dust. For anyone with allergies or asthma like myself this is worth the cost alone., since no dust is generated. Gave it 5 stars for this task and would buy again just for this task.
3) Sweeping by the kitty box. Found it did OK but not great and would not use it for this. We have wood floors so it might be that it doesn’t work all that great due to the wood flooring. Gave it 2 stars for this.
4) Sweeping out the back of a truck. My husband said this worked great for this and much better than other brooms. He gave it 4 Stars for this task.
Not So Good
The idea behind these brooms is great...but the product itself is not so good. The telescoping poles do not stay locked into the extended position. You have to constantly keep re-adjusting the length. Very annoying. I thought Don Aslett's products were supposed to be good quality...guess not!
Arrived just in time to clean the snow off my Jacuzzi! It's the perfect tool for cleaning the cover!
Opened box to test the brooms. Green handle locked in both the up and down position. Blue one would not lock in either position. QVC sent me another blue handle. Same problem. These are trash.
The broom pole dont work
The broom pole needs to be replace or improved. Because it gets out from the bottom of the broom and in the middle dont stay still when in use.
