Easy way to temporarily insulate gap between hardwood floor and baseboard


Odors are entering my apartment from a neighboring unit, and it appears to be getting in via a draft between the baseboard and hardwood floor in my apartment. The draft appears to be localized to a small area in my living room. I'd like to put something in between the baseboard and the floor to insulate the gap. Is there anything I can use that will provide good insulation but be easy to remove without damaging the baseboard or floor? The gap is about 1/8".

Also, if I did talk to my landlord about permanently filling the gap, what is the recommended way to do this with hardwood floors?

You could use "seal and peel" type removable weatherstripping caulk.

Some type of caulk would probably be the permanent solution as well.
