  • I hit them with the brush attachment on the vacuum every other week or so. They get washed down twice a year. Cleaning woodwork is my least favorite job. I'd rather scrub a hundred toilets!!

  • I don't clean them often enough lol! We have a dog and hard wood floors and that dog hair just LOVES the baseboards! When I sweep each day I run the broom along the baseboard tops, and about every 2 months or so I dust them down with an old sock on my hand and some lemon scented Pledge. Really makes that dog hair shine, lemme tell you!

  • Whenever we vacuum the carpets and we use the crevice attachment to get the edging, we go ahead and get the baseboards, too.
    We'll clean them up proper after we close the windows after pollen seasons (ie: summer for a/c and winter for heat).
