Nighttime Salt Trick for Your Broom: Prepare to Be Amazed

Materials Needed:

  • Broom
  • Hot water
  • Distilled white vinegar
  • Salt
  • Bucket or bathtub


  • Fill a bucket or your bathtub with hot water. The water should be hot enough to help dissolve the salt and vinegar effectively.
  • Add approximately 1 cup of distilled white vinegar to the hot water. You don’t need to be exact; an estimate will do.
  • Be generous with the salt. Add about half a cup of salt to the water-vinegar mixture. Salt helps harden the broom’s bristles, increasing its longevity.
  • Submerge the broom in the water, ensuring that the bristles are completely covered. Let it soak for at least 30 minutes. You can also leave it overnight for better results.
  • After the soaking time, shake the broom to remove any loose dirt and debris.
  • Allow the broom to air dry. To speed up the drying process, you can place it in a way that any moisture can flow down to the tips of the bristles. For example, you can hang it upside down in your shower.
  • Once the broom is dry, it should be revived and last longer, thanks to the vinegar and salt treatment.
