How to remove 1/4 round and base

I need to remove 1/4 round and base moulding from a bathroom. I want to reuse both mouldings after I put down the new flooring. How do I do this? Existing moulding was installed when home was built 6 years ago and it appears a brad nailer was used.

I have always used a Wonderbar or other thin small prybar for doing this. Use a thin piece of scrapwood under the bar on the wall and other trim to prevent marring it. If the nails come out with the trim, do not tap them back through the finished side. Pull them through the back side of the trim or molding to prevent splintering. Work the trim slowly and evenly to avoid breaking. Good luck.
