Tackle It Tuesday - baseboards

One check mark off the spring cleaning list...
Ok, I know that pregnancy makes you "dumber" but I honestly have no excuse not to have figured this out earlier than 12 wks ago...
VACUUMS HAVE ATTACHMENTS....
THAT WORK REALLY WELL FOR SMALL SPACES! (i.e. baseboards!)
I have on my spring cleaning list to take a wet sponge to my baseboards b/c well, the vacuum doesn't get close enough to get down in the crack where the carpet meets the baseboard. Plus the baseboard has accumulated a layer of dust on it.
Well, DUH. I just had an "ah-ha" moment and attached the long, thin attachment to my vacuum and it's perfect! Baseboards throughout the entire house are now dust free! (finally!)

(This is a half-done, half-not done photo - but now they're all dust free).

p.s. My vacuum has some amazing sucking power. If you haven't already, check out what I've previously vacuumed up (without any attachments) :)

Great tackle!!

My vacuum doesn't suck strongly enough -- that's one of my pet peeves! (But not enough to make me go buy a new one. lol)
