We all know that with kids and animals around the house, it can be really hard to keep walls clean and mark free. Here’s some tips on how to clean walls!

Chux® Magic Erasers

Chux® Magic Eraser is a must-have for households with mischievous toddlers and scuff marks on the wall. Chux® Magic Erasers are made up of fine eraser-like fibres that penetrate surface grooves to easily lift and trap dirt without the use of any chemicals or detergents.

Ink (Pen and Permanent Marker)

Thanks to the artistic attempts of our little cherubs, this seems to be the creative medium that ends up most often on our walls. To remove ink from painted walls, there are a few methods you can try:

  • Spray some hairspray onto a Chux® Superwipe until it’s fairly soaked and rub it gently over the ink mark.
  • Try some rubbing alcohol/metho on a cotton ball and dab it on the ink stain until the stain is gone.
  • Apply some toothpaste to it, leave it for 10 minutes, then wash off with water (this method is also great for wallpapered walls).
  • Apply some eucalyptus oil to a Chux® Superwipe and rub directly on the mark.

Another waxy material the kids like to apply to our walls is crayon. We use Chux® Magic Erasers to get rid of crayon without taking off the paint.

Dirty Fingerprints and Scuff Marks

To get rid of dirty fingerprints, the best thing to use is a ½ cup of white vinegar and ½ cup of warm water and wipe down the walls with a Chux® Superwipe. Eucalyptus oil on a cotton ball rubbed on the fingerprints will also work well.

Grease Marks

The same vinegar/water solution as above may be used to remove grease stains from your walls (especially in the kitchen). Lemon juice is a great degreaser, so you can add a couple of splashes of that to the solution for the stubborn grease marks.

General Wall Cleaner

For a general clean and freshen up of your walls, you can try Shannon Lush’s technique. One teaspoon of lavender oil in a spray bottle of water. Spray it all over the wall and wipe off with pantyhose. Alternatively, you can buy sugar soap from any supermarket or hardware store to wash your walls down.

What do you use to clean your walls? Have you ever had a stain or mark that NOTHING would get out?
