Broom Making Crafty Tip  Whenever you are using natural materials such as broom corn, or some thin strips for basket material, it is commonly known to soak them in water for a while to make them pliable. Some of these materials may develop mold when damp. Soaking in a weak bleach solution may help. Try a sample of the material first, to see how it reacts and be mindful of your clothes and surroundings as bleach is harmful to fabrics etc.
