How to Clean Painted Walls Without Leaving Streaks


How to clean your interior walls clean after
being painted? Welcome to Burning Questions. I’m Mark and that is your Burning Question
for the day. [ music playing ] You just had your kitchen painted and your
son accidentally spattered jelly on the interior walls. What do you do to clean and remove it? Well first, don’t panic! So if it’s something that has just happened,
take a nice soft cloth with some warm water and wipe it off. No problem. But let’s just say someone did this while
you were at work or out for the evening. Now it’s dried and caked onto your freshly
painted walls. Again no problem. Patience is your best friend here. Take that soft cloth with warm water and apply
to the stain. Don’t scrub or use any abrasive motion. You will burnish the wall. Be patient. If it doesn’t come off, repeat until the
food or stain is soften. Remember, water is the most universal cleaning
solution in the world. Here is another tip. I highly recommend using the best quality
materials and finishes in high-traffic areas such as kitchens, hallways, and bathrooms. My reasons why are two-fold. First, when better quality materials are first
painted onto your interior walls, they tend to dry into a more durable surface and then
clean up better. Secondly, if for some reason you can’t remove
a stain, I find that higher quality paints tend to touch up better than their less expensive
counterparts. Just a friendly reminder to the family that
has the newest addition in their home, especially the four-legged type. Thanks again for joining us. Send in your Burning Questions and I will
put them out.
