Have you looked at your baseboards lately? Here’s a story for you. I was recently considering painting my living room. When I was looking at the walls I realized how awful my baseboards looked. And you know what? After I cleaned them up, the whole room looked so good that I decided I can wait at least another year before painting. Clean, fresh baseboards make a HUGE difference in the look of your room. Here’s how to get them clean quickly and easily — and keep them looking cleaner, longer; so you can avoid extra work (like painting).
