How to clean white walls

White walls are a stylish and sophisticated choice for home design. The only drawback is their impracticality. As soon as you barely touch the surface, stains, marks, or even chips appear on it.

Experts have shared an effective and inexpensive home method that will quickly restore white walls. This method is suitable if you don't want to arrange a full-fledged repair and repaint all surfaces. The details were provided by Informacion.

An important note: this life hack can only be used for white and smooth walls, as colored textured surfaces can be severely damaged in this way.

This simple method is especially useful for those who rent a house and want to leave the walls in perfect condition before moving. Alternatively, the life hack will be useful for families with small children who like to paint the walls.

Step 1: Preparation

If you used double-sided tape to hang decorative items on the walls, a hairdryer will help remove it. Soften the tape with warm air and wipe off the remnants with a spatula. Don't worry about any stains that may remain - we'll tell you how to clean them later.

Step 2: Filling the holes

Fill the holes in the walls with putty. Cover all the bumps and cracks with it. This will prepare the walls for the cleaning process.

Step 3: Preparing the cleaning solution

The necessary ingredients:

  • Dishwashing detergent
  • White vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • Water

Pour hot water into a container. Add a little dishwashing detergent and white vinegar. Mix thoroughly and supplement the solution with a teaspoon of table salt for a whitening effect.

Step 4: Cleaning the walls

Using the stiff side of the sponge, scrub the stains in a circular motion until they disappear. Then remove any residue with the soft side and in a vertical motion. If the wall is very damp, wipe it with a cloth, although it is advisable to let it dry naturally.

Step 5: Ventilation

After cleaning all the walls, ventilate the room well to remove any residual odor from the detergent. This way, you can quickly clean white walls without resorting to repainting.

By the way, cleaning experts advise you to learn a few important life hacks that will help you keep your home clean. Read more in the article.
