Washing Walls The Easy Way, (great For Horizontally Challenged)


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I was mopping our wooden floors with the sponge head that is best for wood, and noticed a bunch of smudges on a wall. In a hurry, I simply tried the mop, with the Lemon Pine Sol, and it came off the first time. I ended up mopping all of the walls. The dust I did not see, came off really well, and the rooms sparkle. And the house smells great. I had to do extra scrubbing where there were food spots, but that was all there was to it. If you have carpet, be careful to use less water on mop.

    This is the same method I use for flat ceilings, just be careful not to let metal part of sponge mop scrape off paint. Then do around edges of ceiling on chair or step ladder, takes little time.

    Please do be careful if you have carpet, and around sockets. Squeeze out as much water as possible, so it does not get on your floor. If you simply want to freshen your walls, any mild pleasant smelling cleaner would do, just use very little, so you don't have to rinse after.
