How to Clean Baseboards in 2 Easy Steps
By: Joe Truini
Let’s face it: Taking care of our walls and floors is easier than some other parts of the home.
Like baseboards — you know, those narrow strips of wood that line the base of interior walls. They can really take a beating!
If it’s not the dust bunnies and dirt that accumulate in these areas, it’s the small scuff marks that develop over time.
Fortunately, there’s a Simple Solution!
Joe Truini breaks it down into two steps:
- Mix one quart of water with about one cup of liquid fabric softener.
- Use a cloth or sponge to wash the decorative molding and baseboards.
So, why does this work? Well, the antistatic property of the fabric softener helps to remove the dirt and prevents static cling from attracting more dust.
And that’s today’s Simple Solution!
