How to clean wallpaper at home

If stains appear on the wallpaper, and repair is not yet in your plans, you can save the situation with improvised means. One available ingredient will get rid of grease, fingerprints and other contaminants.

You just need to prepare an effective paste. The House Digest publication gave the details.

The necessary ingredients are:

  • baking soda;
  • water.

Mix one tablespoon of baking soda with one teaspoon of water in a container. Apply the mixture to a clean sponge or cloth and gently wipe the soiled area of the wallpaper. The product needs time to work. Set a timer for five to ten minutes, depending on how bad the stain is, and then gently remove the mixture with a clean cloth or sponge.

You can also prepare a mixture that is more diluted in consistency. To make a detergent solution, mix two tablespoons of baking soda with five liters of water. Soak a clean cloth in the mixture, then gently wipe the wallpaper. Important: do not soak the cloth completely, as this may cause the moisture to damage the surface of the wallpaper.

To remove particularly stubborn dirt, you should repeat the procedure several times, but the wallpaper should not be rubbed too hard. And most importantly - first test the remedy on an inconspicuous area.

By the way, paper, fleece and vinyl wallpaper are sensitive to water and cleaning agents, so that they should be treated from stains very carefully. Vinyl, for example, can be both on fleeces and paper-based. If it is a foamed vinyl that forms three-dimensional patterns on the wall, it can be sensitive to friction and cleaning agents. How to clean different types of wallpaper - read in the material.
