Remember these things on the day of Dhanteras
On the day of Dhanteras, after purchasing a broom, one should first worship Goddess Lakshmi and then tie a white thread to the broom. By doing this, Goddess Lakshmi's blessings remain upon you.
The broom should never be kept upright. It is considered inauspicious to do so.
The broom should always be kept at such a place in the house where no one coming from outside can see it.
Before Dhanteras, along with cleaning, the old broom should also be thrown out of the house. A new broom should be kept at that place.
