Neat Freak, or just a tidy housekeeper? At some point, whether it’s daily or once a month, everyone cleans their apartment. While vacuuming, dusting, and mopping come natural to us, other cleaning projects slip our minds, and those are the ones that, when we move out or choose to do our spring cleaning, we are surprised to find filthy. Baseboards are a commonly forgotten cleaning project that, when left alone, can build up unsightly bits of dust and other small particles that came through your apartment. Usually baseboards prove difficult to clean thanks to their location at the bottom of the wall, but we have a few helpful tips to lighten their burden on your cleaning habits:
- For the ones that are easily accessible, spray a sponge mop with your favorite all purpose cleaner, then run it along the baseboards.
- All-purpose cleaning wipes are usually quick remove grit and grime without too much scrubbing, so consider using those to get your baseboards shining.
- Use a dryer sheet to clean your baseboards or after you’ve scrubbed; they leave a light coating that helps repel dust.
