Cleaning Your Baseboards with Fabric Softener

Cleaning Your Baseboards with Fabric Softener

There are few things in life that we enjoy less than cleaning our baseboards. It takes longer than we’d like, involves crawling around on the floor with a bucket and rags, and the worst part is that it needs done every other week! Luckily there’s an awesome home hack that can turn it from something you need to do every other week to something you can leave for a few months.

Using a dryer sheet to clean your baseboards is the perfect way to keep your baseboards free from dust and pet hair. It works to get rid of static, which is one of the main reasons that pet hair and dust are drawn to them. Even better, it also coats the surface with an anti-static barrier, helping keep your baseboards dust-free for much longer than normal cleaning.

Alongside being perfect for banishing dust, it also works really well to keep them free from pet hair, dirt and the various other things that are brought in to your home. If you have pets and/or kids you’ll know how much mess they can make without even trying, so anything yo can do to fight back is more than welcome!

You can either get down on the floor and wipe them down by hand, or attach the fabric softener sheet to a mop head and work your way round the baseboards. Either way you’re saving a ton of time in the long term, and you’re taking a regular cleaning job and turning it into something you only need to do every couple of months.
