Day #12 – Busy Mom’s Spring Cleaning Challenge

day12Day #12’s task is to Clean those Baseboards!

Grab a damp, soapy rag and get scrubbing.  It’s amazing what difference such a small detail can make.  This is also another safe task to include your kids on, no matter what age.  Kids love to feel like they’re a part of something, so give them a rag and let them trail along behind you!

Don’t forget to comment below when you finish!  I will be posting Before/After pictures on my Facebook page.  I’d be thrilled if you’d join me!

Extra Credit Ideas for the Super Motivated:

Baseboards get a lot of wear-and-tear.  Sometimes scuffs or scratches can’t be erased with just a wet rag. If you have a pint of white paint in storage (always an excellent thing to have on hand!), grab a Q-tip and use the paint to cover up some of those marks!

    Today was a minimum day for the kiddos, so I put them to work! Ha ha! We got them all done and super quick!

    The girls room was the last one to get completed on this task…I did it at the same time that I mopped their floors. It seemed like it went well with cleaning out in the corners of the floors. But, now all is done!
