I have never really felt excited at the thought of cleaning baseboards. You know… All that bending and gasping for breath and the back pain for a good couple of days after that dreadful cleaning day. Whew πŸ™‚

But I have always wanted to see my baseboards looking clean. Just not at the expense of my back and knees.

So here is a clever way to get the job done without becoming a contortionist or ending up in the Emergency Room.

Here is what you will need:

Your Favorite Broom

Microfiber Cloth or Rag

Dusting Spray

Ribbon or Large Rubber Ban

The items you will need are very simple. You can opt to use a store bought dusting spray, or make your own.

Here is a tutorial for making your own Homemade Dusting Spray.


Castile Soap

Lemon Essential Oil

Olive Oil

White Vinegar

Jasmine Essential Oil


DIY Dusting Spray: A good combination for these ingredients would be 1 drop Lemon Essential Oil, 1 drop Jasmine Essential Oil, 1 Tbsp Olive Oil, 1 Tbsp White Vinegar and 1 Cup of Water. Mix them together well in a spray bottle.

Simply wrap the microfiber cloth around the broom. Use the ribbon or rubber ban to hold the cloth tightly in place on the broom.

Spritz your new microfiber broom combination tool with your super sparkly dusting spray. Don’t soak the cloth wet. You just want it to be dampened.

Now, sweep your baseboards to and from, top and bottom with your cloth and broom tool.

You should have sparkly clean baseboards in a few minutes.


Also, your back and knees should still be in sparkly good condition. Hoping they were before πŸ™‚ But if not, no additional damage should have been done by using this super easy baseboard cleaning method.
