We finished cleaning the kitchen, the walls and now we are working our way down the wall. Washing woodwork is my least favorite job. You can imagine, I have to wash woodwork more than twice a year with three large dogs.
First, I vacuum all the woodwork; baseboards, crown molding, door jams and chair rails.
With a bucket of warm water and a 1/4 c. of all-purpose cleaner, gloves and a soft cloth, I wipe them down.
I include a scrub brush in the bucket because sometimes dirt on the woodwork can be a little stubborn.
Again, I make notes on any woodwork that needs to be painted, have loose boards or needs to be fixed.
This job is done for another 4 months… thank goodness.
