Abstract (en)

This invention relates to a manually operated device for cleaning brooms or the like, comprising at least one surface (2) on which small sharp-edge particles are arranged which do not experience electrostatical effects, said surface being rubbed up and down on the bristles of the brooms to remove waste, threads and/or hair that are entangled and/or stick thereto because of the statical electricity generated by friction between the bristles and/or the surface to be cleaned. Said rough surface is an area coated with glass paper or emery cloth (2), whose small, hard, close grains act on the bristles of the brooms as a comb with very close teeth that get not entangled in any knotted or curled bristle because of the small size of its teeth. Down, threads, even long hair, and dirt particles removed from the broom does not stick to the rough surface (2) as the abrasive grains of the latter have a small height so that they cannot trap said down. <IMAGE>
