L1 paraplegic with Spina Bifida sweeping from a wheelchair

As you can see today here my day is not starting out too well! I dropped, what was going to be my entire breakfast, on the floor so now I have to clean it up! This is Kristen with Living Able! I want to show you guys some tips & tricks for sweeping up your floor. I know that most of us are dealing with just a regular broom and this "fancy" dust pan here. That is such a pain to pick up off the floor right? I am going to show you how this can be done pretty easily. Before I show you how I use a traditional dust pan I want to show you what I would prefer to use. What I would recommend using would be a dustpan like this.

It is like a dustpan with a pole. So you don't have to lean all the way to the floor to pick up your dustpan. Which could lead to you falling out of your chair. You could spill your trash again etc. With the dustpan I like to use. As you can see it sweeps into this dustpan really easily. I am able too easily pick it up and dump it out.

With your traditional dustpan you put it on the floor. Then the first obstacles is to keep it from sliding around as you are sweeping into it. I put it into a corner and then I am a going to sweep the kitchen going towards that corner. So I would start in the furthest part of the room and work my way towards the corner. Get what is behind the dustpan. Then move it back into the corner. Finally, you want to pick up the dustpan right? But you don't want to struggle with leaning over because you could fall out of your chair. So what I am going to do is slowly pick it up with my reacher.

There you go! The floor is perfectly clean! For more tutorials please SUBSCRIBE and share with your friends! Have a great day!.
