Hi, this is Ann Myrick, and today, I'm going to show you how to clean baseboards. What you want to do first, is you want to get the hose on your vacuum cleaner, and you want to vacuum the loose dust, that is on your trim, or on your baseboards, and after you've vacuumed really well, then you come back with soapy, I have a bucket full of soapy water here, and a sponge, and you're just going to go with your baseboard, and you're just going to scrub. I have a sponge, and then I have a little bit of a scrubber, so there might be areas, where you really need to kind of scrub, so you want to get all the dirt, and stains and then also, a toothbrush. Just a clean old toothbrush is great. You want to be able , you want to be sure that you mark it, so if you use it on the floor, that it doesn't get into the bathroom, and somebody else uses it, but you want to use a toothbrush, and go into all the little crevices, and really clean, and then go back and just dry with a towel. This is Ann Myrick, and that is how you clean baseboards.
