For a super-thorough baseboard cleaning, you do kind of need to involve rags, water, soap, and a decent amount of elbow grease.

But if you just need a quick spruce because you’re having an impromptu dinner party or something, there’s a faster way!

Grab a dryer sheet from your laundry room and give your dirty baseboards a quick wipe. The anti-static properties of the sheet will help repel dust so your boards will stay cleaner, longer.

The more often you wipe the boards down using this method, the less dust will stick to them. Over time, you’ll stop hating the task and focus your loathing on something else, like toilets.

Back-Saving Tip: If bending down to baseboard level is the most irritating part of the chore for you, affix the sheet to a Swiffer duster to make it easier on your back.
