Fill in the Gap
Grime hides in your baseboards, often sifting down—and piling up in—that little gap between the board and wall. Try acrylic painter's caulk to close up the opening, Mills says. Use your finger to push it in, creating a smooth line. Once it's dry, paint it to match the baseboards. No one will notice it's there, but it will save you serious clean-up time over the years, he says.
