HELP!!!

So...i took a personal day off today in order to get a bunch of stuff done around the house. I totally cleaned out and organized our pantry first thing this morning....it looks great now!

Now.....I am on to baseboards! I am one of those people who likes to pretend like my baseboards aren't really there.....this meaning....i never clean them!! I just started cleaning and thought I would throw a question out to my bloggie friends:

What is the BEST way that you have found to clean BASEBOARDS?

I have been using a Magic Eraser...but just didn't know if there was a better way! I would LOVE to be informed!

On my agenda today :
  • Pantry organization
  • Master closet organization
  • Master bathroom organization
  • Baseboard cleaning
  • Running to the garden store to get flowers for our outside pots
  • Planting the flowers
  • Wall paint touch-ups
I am going to try to post a personal catch-up blog post tonight for you all! I feel the need to explain some things! :)

XOXO,

Hilary

How much can i hire you out for?

Your list makes the nesting mama in me excited. (and it added a few things to my weekend to do list too!)

I dry dust the baseboards first and then wipe them down with wet rag or sponge. I drag a bowl of water around with me. I HATE DOING THIS!! Good luck! Your list is daunting!!

I need an update on your life!! I know about the home renovations/organizations but I want more detail! I have missed your pretty face around here like crazy!!

My mom always made this my chore when I was a kid!
I think we just mixed Murphy's Oil Soap and water in a bucket, but now they make wipes so those would be easier.

I always just use hot water and either Murphy's Oil Soap, or sometimes a bleach-based concentrated cleaner (especially if they're scratched or something) :) Happy Cleaning

I haven't noticed a problem with my baseboards getting dirty, just dusty. So I use a swiffer duster on the long extender stick to dust them off. It's nice because you don't have to bend down, you just walk around the house with your "magic" wand.

I've used Mr. Clean Magic Erasers before and they work great!

I use plain old soap and water and so does my house cleaner! It works great!
