I started washing the walls at home, but didn’t get to finish. According to my husband and his grandfather, nobody washes their walls. I argued that there are plenty of people who do, but they weren’t having it.
Do you wash your walls? If so, what do you use to clean them?
Haha! I have to disagree. I cleaned mine before I had a real estate agent come through the house (not meticulously, mind you), and they were very impressed at how well the paintwork had been maintained.
I totally agree with donjo on this 1. I also would never iron pillow case either,as they iron them selves in the pile in the linen cupboard! I put them on the top of the pile after they’re washed & dried, & take the ones I need from the bottom of the pile, so they’ve ironed them selves. (Getting very much of the main topic. Sorry about that!)
No. I don't especially not now that it has been painted. I will however wipe over a dirty handprint or other marks on the walls, if needed. I haven't needed to since it was painted. I made sure that I asked the painter how best to remove dirty marks so as not to ruin his good paint job
When I lived in rented accommodation I would always wash the walls before I left. The only walls I wash now are the toilet walls as I think they get germy, or on occasion when I have repainted. I remember washing my all walls in this house once during a spring clean. But that was a long time ago. The outside walls of my house could do with a wash, but I shall have to employ someone for that as I have sore arms and a weak shoulder.
Yes. Warm water, splash of vinegar, spot of dishwashing liquid. I thought everybody did. I do, my friends do, my family does. Walls get very dusty. Spring cleaning always involved wall washing in my day. (OMG! I am old!)
