    Base boards

    Hi, I'm doing lots of spring cleaning and would love to have some tips on cleaning base boards. Bending over is hard on my back for that long. Anyone have an easier way?

    Not much easier, but I just do about 3 or 4 feet and then go to something else for a couple of minutes. I keep coming back to them, bend over once and another break with something easy. Unfortunately, I have a short attention span...

    Hire a maid. Seriously, you can get someone to come in and do monthly cleaning of your house and it isn't that expensive.

    Good question .. but yeah I'm tempted to hire a maid for a thorough Spring cleaning here too. They can clean everything 1' and below next to floor and I'll clean up to 5' from the floor. lol
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    If it would only bring on Spring immediately, I'd lick the damn baseboards clean.
