Baseboards are often looked over when it comes to a cleaning day because bending down to wipe the dust off sucks. However, this tutorial by POV Tips&Tricks on YouTube shows how to clean the baseboard without bending. This hack is super convenient because I hate cleaning baseboards. For some reason, they get dusty easily and I would push back the days I need to clean them. It sucks because most of a house or apartment has a baseboard all around the trim of the place, so it sucks having to clean them all in the first place. You don’t have to clean them, but I’m a super clean person and it was a required cleaning chore growing up. This cleaning hack makes me happy because I know so many people who struggle with back pains and avoid cleaning their baseboards. I don’t have back pains, but I think it takes a long time to clean. Plus, this tip, it would make the cleaning process a lot faster too.



  • Microfiber Cloth
  • 2 elastic Bands
  • A broom


First,  lay down your microfiber cloth flat and place the broom on top.
