Win OXO cleaning tools




I have reviewed for Oxo a few times over the past three years, I still use everything I am sent, they have a great knack of making the tools and gadgets just that bit better or more inventive.My recent review of the Avocado 3-in-1 slicer is just an example.


This time OXO asked if I would like to get cleaning with two of their latest tools. Well I don't like cleaning so any help is useful.

My first item was for quick tidy ups, OXO’s compact dustpan and brush set (£7) its a handy little gadget to have by your side. I have a family who like toast, now I like toast but I hate the toaster with a passion, it has a crumb tray that  does little to help. The crumbs still fall out the bottom and if I pick it up to move it even after cleaning it, there is still a shower of crumbs.

Must find a toaster that does not do this? I decided that the toaster would have the OXO compact dustpan and brush as its little helper. The family have been told it is to be used or the toaster goes and so far so good. The mini dustpan sits neatly in the draw under the bane of my life and I am far happier, its good for the table as well and small clear ups of my settee.


The next tool I tried  was the OXO’s new any-angle broom (£20on first try I was not sure I would get use to it as its so light I over compensated and I missed bits, now I would not swap it. Its got a lovely wide brush length,makes it so much quicker.I have a large expanse of wooden floor in the lounge and kitchen. It is so much quicker. 


Chris made me laugh as he said, " I love toomy ( this is what I heard) brushes!" I looked puzzled,he said "You can sweep towards yourself, so its a 'To Me' it's so much easier!"

He is right though I did think he had turned into one of the Chuckle Brothers!



The brush is so narrow, it gets under furniture with ease and even into tight spaces, in the picture above you can see the pivot, it easily clicks down to really get at dust bunnies under my settees. Its very very clever and great for all my floors.


If cobwebs form in corners you find hard to reach or dirt lingers between your kitchen units and appliances, . With a tap of the foot, the head pivots and locks into multiple positions including a 40 degree angle for accessing tight spaces between units and furniture. 





Available from Waitrose.
