I took great pleasure sweeping earlier today. That’s because I have a new broom, a walis tambo (or whisk broom, according to Amazon.com), courtesy of my parents. My other broom had been slowly disintegrating over the last several weeks.
I love these Philippine-made brooms. I have hardwood floors and the brooms are perfect. I guess I could get something like a Swiffer sweeper, but the floor just doesn’t feel as clean to me afterwards. Also, it can get pretty expensive replacing those pads. Our walis tambo is more environment friendly.
