Effective Ways to Spruce Up your Room
Cleaning the baseboards around your home might not be the most exciting concept, but it is the sort of task that can help your property to look homelier and more pristine when done right. If you think it's about time that the edges of your walls looked just as spic and span as the rest of your property, then the good news is that we've got a few great tips that could help you to get pristine baseboards in no time!
The Simple Solution
If you're not too concerned about how much time you're going to spend on tidying up your baseboards, then the easiest option for a thorough clean is to fill a bucket with warm soapy water, and soak a few magic erasers or sponges in there. You can also try using water and vinegar if you have some particularly tough stains to remove.
Make sure that you squeeze the sponge out thoroughly before you start wiping down your baseboards, otherwise you could end up with pools of water on your floor or carpet. If your baseboards aren't painted, then you'll need to use specialist wood cleaner to avoid excessive (and damaging) moisture.
If your baseboards just need a little extra attention to look their best, but there are no major stains to worry about, then you might consider simply using the "dry clean" method. Using a soft-bristled paintbrush or broom, gently sweep your baseboards over, to remove any dust and excess dirt. You can also give them a rub over with a cloth at the end to make sure you've removed every last bit of debris.
Once you're done, simply vacuum the floor around the baseboards to pick up any loose paint or dirt that you might have dislodged.
The Focused Option
Finally, if you don't want to spend your day cleaning all of your baseboards, but you've noticed a few marks here and there that you want to get rid of, grab an old sock, a spray bottle, and a clean, disposable toilet wand. Place the toilet wand inside the sock, and spray on your chosen cleaning liquid, whether it's wood cleaner, diluted vinegar, or gentle soap, and scrub the stains lightly.
This is a great low-cost way to remove
unwanted dirt, and you can always just throw the sock in the washer
if you want to use it again.
