Corn Broom Care

I have an older corn broom that I found in my basement that I am starting to use for throwing. Because it has been down there for so long it is very dry and brittle. What is the proper maintence and care for corn brooms. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

1. Open Garbage Can Lid
2. Place Corn Broom in Can
3. Close Lid

Applies especially to old dry corn brooms.

Soak the end in water for a bit and wrap a plastic bag around the corn part to it moist and supple again. I'd be tempted to dip it in lighter fluid and torch it though.

Have you checked your basement for other useful things like curling irons or carburator parts? LOL

Perhaps a good covering of duct tape may work best....that is providing it is not going to be used also for sweeping out your truck box or garage. fI that is the case, then I suggest going to RONA and getting a new one and torching the old one as suggested above . Of course Walchuk & Stoughton would maybe give you lots for it providing it is a Little Beaver model & so you may want to check out that option also.

Or perhaps Jimmy Hoffa?

Soak the bottom 2 to 3 inches in steaming hot water. Cover with plastic. Place broom up against wall overnight handle down, straws up to allow water to soak down broom.
Rinse, lather, repeat and you should be ready to go.
