Where/how do you store your mops, brooms, etc.

Recommended Posts

We moved a week ago, and we really do not have a good spot in our laundry room for keeping tall-handled things. There is no closet, and I am going to put a rolling hanging rack in the only tall spot that has no cabinets. Can I keep the mop and broom in the garage? Any clever way to store these items?

 

Thanks.

I have a flat metal strip with springloaded grippers on it. You push the handle of the broom in and it holds it off the ground, flat against the wall.

For something a bit heavier, hubby had a bigger plastic strip with metal (covered in rubbery stuff) "S" shaped on a hinge. You put your kayak paddle or mop or whatever in the curve and the downward pull makes the S move close to the wall and the rubbery stuff won't let it slip.

:iagree:

 

I use the rubber coated s-hook thing the previous poster described. It is in the garage, but just outside the back door. When I need a broom or mop, I just reach into the garage and grab it. It actually works pretty well!

Sounds great, but I am not "getting" it. Is there a name for such a thing? Can someone post a picture? I am not sure I would even know what to ask for at Lowe's? :001_smile:

Broom holders. I think we got ours from Lowe's or Home Despot. I will google.

Don't get the ball kind "magicholder". Hassle, slip, hassle, slip. Bulkier, too.

 

Imagine this one with only the two end holder-types. You push up lightly from below and then let the broom down and the S tightens it against the wall.
