Dustpan Addition

Martha Stewart Living, June 2006

It's hard to improve on something as simple as a dustpan, but we think we've found a way. Adhere a strip of magnetic tape, sold at hardware stores, toward the rear of the pan. Keep it in the garage, basement, or workshop. The tape will attract any small metal objects -- such as nails, brads, or screws that find their way onto the floor -- holding them fast as you tilt the pan to sweep up more debris.
