A broom is a cleaning tool and improvised blunt weapon.
If the player is carrying both a bottle of bleach and a broom, when right-clicking a blood splatter, the option "Clean Blood" will appear. Cleaning bloodstains is currently cosmetic and will not affect the player's health. Both the bath towel and dish towel also have the same function, however they also have additional uses and will usually be preferred over the broom.
A mop serves the same purpose.
A broom can be used as an improvised weapon. It has particularly low durability and damage, but can hit two zombies simultaneously and has longer than average maximum range.
Brooms can be found in general stores, kitchens, and Gigamarts.
