Effectively Clean Your Baseboards—And Keep Them That Way

Written by 

Cleaning the baseboards isn’t a housekeeping task you probably address often, but over time they start to collect dust and looking dingy. Sometimes they just need a good cleaning, and it might not be as hard as you think. 

Whether you clean your baseboards or cleaning services do, there’s a great trick for keeping them looking fantastic between cleanings! 

Dust or Vacuum 

Dust collects on the top line of your baseboards easily, and not only does it create a dirty looking wall, it can also worsen allergies for those who are sensitive to dust and pollen. Before you can clean, the dust needs to be chased away. Do this with an old fashioned dusting or a small vacuum hose.

Wipe Down 

Get your favorite cloth (microfiber is best if you have it, but not necessary) and dip it in a cleaning solution. If you don’t have a favorite cleaner, try just a touch of dish detergent in a large bucket. Too many suds will actually attract dirt, so try to keep it extremely diluted. 

Ring out the cloth as much as possible, and don’t spray or pour water directly onto the baseboards to avoid saturation. Using the cloth, wipe down the baseboards, front and top. 

The Trick to Prevention 

Dryer sheets are known to prevent dust build up, and for the grooves in your baseboards, this is especially true. Rub over the baseboards with a dryer sheet to repel dust for weeks—and sometimes months—to come! 

When your baseboards are clean, you can feel confident that your house is clean from top to bottom!
