How To Wash Your Walls

Professionally cleaned house with clean walls

A couple of months ago, we shared the importance of cleaning your kitchen cabinets, even though it’s often the last thing we remember to do.

Similar to the cabinets, when was the last time that you took time to clean your walls?

You might be thinking that we’re crazy because who takes the time to clean their walls, but just like every other area of our house, our walls need the same attention.

Throughout this article, we’re going to be sharing the step-by-step process to make sure that your walls stay sparkling clean.

1. Grab The Supplies

More than likely, you already have these supplies lying around your home.

You’ll want to grab a duster, liquid dish soap, water, soft cloths, two buckets, baking soda, and a foam craft brush.

Next, you’ll want to put a few drops into the bottom of one of the buckets and then fill it with warm water.

In the second bucket, fill with water only so that you can rinse the soap off later in the process.

2. Dust The Wall

Before you can begin to clean your walls, make sure to dust them so that you don’t create mud instead, leading to a bigger mess.

Take your duster and go over every part that you plan on cleaning.

If you plan on cleaning more than one wall, do each of the walls now. That way, you don’t need to worry about starting and stopping in between each one.

3. Find A Test Patch

If you have never cleaned your walls before, or if you’re using a different soap for the first time, find a small part of the wall that’s out of sight.

Take the soap mixture and the soft cloth and test it there.

If you don’t notice any changes in the paint, continue with the rest of the wall.

4. Start Cleaning

Now you’re all set to begin. The first part is to take your cloth and gently move it in a circular motion throughout the entire surface.

If you notice a stain, get your baking soda, water, and foam craft brush.

Mix half of a cup of baking soda with a quarter cup of water and mix with the brush to form a paste.

After the paste is ready, brush it over the stain and let it wait for around five minutes. Wipe off with your cleaning cloth, and the area should be good as new.

Once done cleaning the walls with soapy water, take a clean cloth and start rinsing it with your second bucket of water.

Continue this until all the walls get rinsed, and then dry with a clean towel.
