Cleansweep 5

"You could raffle off those Cleansweep Fives; I expect a museum would bid for them."
-- Draco Malfoy (CS7)

Cleansweep 5

The Cleansweep Five broom (QA9) was produced by the Cleansweep Broom Company, probably sometime in the 1950s, as the Holyhead Harpies‘ captain had one by 1953 (QA7).
