Horsehair is great for cleaning and grooming. The dense tuft made of horse’s tail does not create a static charge and the bristles adapt to any surface. It effectively removes dust, sand and dirt, and leaves nothing behind. Do not push the broom with force, but pull it to conserve the hair. On occasion you can wash and comb the horsehair, to maintain the quality of sweeping and to remove dirt. Please always store the broom by hanging! It measures 11.8" and comes with threaded broomstick handle.
