Tips For Cleaning Crevices, Moulding & Other Tight Spaces
Dianne shared her tips for cleaning crevices, moulding, and other tight places around your home, where it is hard to get your hand to clean dust, dirt and grime that seems to flock to these little spaces.
I use old toothbrushes to clean around the hardware and framing/moulding at doorways.
I use a sponge to get most of the hand and finger prints off of the painted surfaces, but sometimes the grime is in that odd angle around the doorknob assembly.
I keep a small supply of "soft" bristle toothbrushes for cleaning painted surfaces and for cleaning the carved places on my furniture before applying a new coat of polish.
This is usually just a dust buildup and the soft bristle brush will clean it out without damaging the finish and the wood.
Thanks so much for sharing these tips Dianne.
