You probably have everything you need for this hack laying around the house. Here’s a list of what you need:

How to Clean Your Baseboards without Bending Over
After you’ve gathered your supplies, here’s what to do:
Fold up your towel and wrap it around the bristles of your broom. Now, secure it with the headband. (You may have to tighten or loosen your headband to get the proper tension.)
Spray some multi-purpose cleaner or wood polish on the bottom of the broom towel and start cleaning.
This works extremely well for cleaning your baseboards and ceiling.
