If you must clean your walls use this ‘recipe’ to keep your walls free from grease, finger marks and dust for a beautiful looking clean.
- 1 Gallon of Water
- 1 Cup of Bottled Ammonia
- 1/2 Cup Bottled Vinegar
- 1/4 Cup of Baking Soda
Put the ammonia, vinegar, and baking soda into the bucket of water. Mix well. And then wash the walls from the bottom up because if you get drips on the unclean surface it will leave marks that are very difficult if not impossible to remove, just as with any other surface cleaner would.
