Walis Tambo is a Filipino word that refers to a broom which made up of reed (species of large aquatic grasses ). It's very soft and easy to glide on. I never got used with the usual broom that most americans are using. When I went to the Philippines for a vacation I brought two (2) walis tambo and the first one retired yesterday so I needed to use my last supply. For sure, there are being sold in any Filipino store and I expect that it's too costly so I might get another sets when I go back to the Philippines.
