Dried or frozen?
How to keep bath brooms until summer, when it’s time for freshness?
vDried brooms are wrapped in thick paper so that they are less dusty and clean in a dry and cool place where there is ventilation. In a private house, dry brooms can be stored in attics without heating. If you live in an apartment, leave the brooms in a cardboard box in a dry and dark place. The main thing is not to get wet and not to start growing bud on them.
Brooms that are sent to the freezer after collection break less and lose leaves during operation, and after use are easier to steam clean. In addition, if the broom is not too bald, it can be re-frozen and reused after bathing (although other life may be and with a dried broom if washed with warm water and dried after bathing).
Softwood brooms that do not tolerate drying can be stored frozen. You can also freeze them yourself by sealing the brooms with nylon in advance.
Revive the broom
Before you go to the steam room, the broom - it doesn't matter, dried or frozen, you have to "revive" it.
To begin with, you need to wash a dry broom made of birch or oak with warm water, then put it in the sink with cold water for a few minutes, and then leave it in warm water for a few minutes. After that, the broom should be put in hot water (about 80 degrees) and left for about ten minutes - this is one of the ways.
