Never Say Never
When I was married without children, I used to visit my friend’s house and notice all of the dirty handprints all over her walls. I thought to myself, “Doesn’t she see how dirty that is?!”. That’s pretty judgemental, hu? Well, 10 years and 3 kids later, I am my friend. I randomly find myself looking at my own walls thinking, “Doesn’t she know how dirty that is?!”… and then I realize, oh wait, this is my house!
I just had to find a solution that would make this horrific house chore easier and faster. Because who wants to spend hours wiping walls?! Not me! I’ve got better things to do!
Thankfully, there aren’t many tools involved in my nifty little trick. And you probably have most of them at home already in your closet! But just in case you don’t I have linked the products that I use when I clean my walls.
There isn’t much to this trick, but here it is!
- Fill your sink with hot water
- Add a little bit of cleaning concentrate to the water
- Dunk your mop head into the water
- Wring out excess water so the mop head is damp
- Attach mop head to the mop
- Wipe your walls with the mop
- Stand back and be amazed at how quickly you finished!
That wasn’t so bad, was it?! Now you can have clean walls, and do the things that you want to be doing. No more wasting time (and major arm strength) getting your walls to look the color they are supposed to be! If you try this out, come back and leave a comment and let me know how it worked for you!
