Our baseboards are in dire need of a good cleaning and I just hate to do it. They are painted with white semi-gloss paint and they show everything. Having a Saint Bernard and 3 cats doesn't help either. Does anyone know an easier way to clean them than the "on my hands and knees" deal. Thanks so much.

I sweep mine regularly with a broom and use a mop to clean them!
Pay a neighbor kid 25 cents per foot to clean them. Hehe.
homeschoolin_mum has the right idea. I am a janitor and this is how I do them. Much faster and a lot less painful.
Place an old pair of sports socks, sprayed with a bit of vinegar and water. Then just use your feet to do a quick cleaning.
Use a sponge mop and put a squirt of mop-n-glo in the water and the next time all the gunk will wipe off easily.
Next time you paint, use glossy paint on baseboards for easier cleanup.
You can buy a tub cleaner. It is a plastic wand with a sponge and scrubber attached. I clean my kitchen floor under my table with them. My chair legs have the rubber caps and it leaves black marks on the floor. This way you don't have to get down on your hands and knees. I also agree with the gloss paint.
Would 409 cleaner give them a kick? I'll do anything not to have to get down on all 4's to clean them. I use a mop too, but it does get the ground in stuff up.
try mr clean magic erasers,they clean almost everything.
