    Cleaning baseboards?

    Advertisements
    Figured I'd surprise my mom when she comes home from the gym and clean her baseboards. I don't wanna use the wrong products though and strip the paint. We have wood baseboards painted white. Does anyone know the best way to clean these? TIA. I've looked online but I figured you guys would know best.

    When we had white baseboards, I just used Clorox wipes.

    We don't have the wipes but we do have Clorox disinfecting bathroom cleaner. Would that work with a wash cloth?

    If you can get some, they are so handy. I use them on the ceiling fan, air vents, baseboards, tub rim, chairs, and the front door

    We normally use a little furniture polish on a rag. Or a little lysol and water.

    Dryer sheets work really well. Magic erasers also work. Clorax wipes work okay but I don't use them because my dog licks my baseboards and that doesn't make me uncomfortable.

    My mom used to have me do it and I just used swiffer wipes. But if its not just dust and its actually stuck on dirt, then she had me use Clorox wipes or a bucket of water and a wet rag

    I want all of them!!

    Don't magic erasers strip paint though? I remember being told not to use them on painted things...
