I use this dryer sheet hack to speed clean baseboards

The inside of my cleaning cupboard is full of products from polishes for wooden furniture to different floor cleaners for tile and wood alongside glass sprays and bathroom foams. Yes, there are products to clean nearly every surface of the home. However, one area that always collects dust, no matter what I do is the baseboards with the result that before visits from friends and family (especially the more eagle-eyed members of the latter) I spent ages down on my hands and knees scrubbing the baseboards with soapy water.

Yet it wasn’t until I told my mom about my bugbear that we realized she’d had the answer all along with a dryer sheet cleaning tip which not only keeps my baseboards clean but also makes my entire house smell beautiful.

This is the trick my mom didn’t know I didn’t already know that now means I can get baseboards clean in double quick time.
