It's rather a pain to pull out the big vaccum cleaner every time I notice a piece of lint floating across my hardwood floor. So I make good use of the Oxo dustpan with inclusive form-fitting brush I bought last week.
Oxo is a company that puts a lot of effort in making its products ergonomically comfortable and with wonderfully expressive style, striking form, and crisp design in the details. Molded in blindingly white plastic, the smooth rounded curves have been styled with voluptuos charm. I would have to say though, that the bristles are not quite stiff enough so you end up flexing the bristles and hitting the hard plastic portion of the brush on whatever you're dusting. But otherwise it works flawlessly. Note the serrated edges of the dustpan that you can use to cleannoff the bristles.
