Why You Need to Clean Your Walls When You Spring Clean

Day 3, Walls

Fingerprints, spatters and cooking odors are just the start when it comes to dirty walls, to say nothing of children’s artwork in the form of crayon drawings. To restore your walls, clean them with the baking soda paste mentioned earlier, followed by clear water to remove the baking soda residue. Alternatively, a quart of warm water with a quarter cup of vinegar in it will work just as well.


For spot cleaning, use the vinegar and water combination in a spray bottle. Just wipe clean with a sponge or cloth.
