I received a wonderful tutorial from a reader and though you would all like to hear it. I really need to try this cleaner!
I came across a great natural cleaner for walls and thought you might want to share it with your readers.
This stuff works great – just as well as the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser – at a fraction of the cost! It cleans fingerprints, scuffs and even cleaning the grout between floor tiles.
My husband purchased a small bottle of spray grout cleaner from a hardware store for about $18, which we compared it to the baking soda/water paste, and the results were the same!
The chemical cleaner that he purchased said that the floors had to be rinsed several times and to try to use in a ventilated area. Who wants that on their floor – especially if they have small children or pets in their home!
How to do it:
Mix enough baking soda & water to form a paste and then scrub walls clean with a cloth. Wipe the surface with a wet rag to get rid of the baking soda residue.
When I made the paste for the floor, I did so in a small bowl, applied it with a baby spoon, scrubbed with a nail brush and then wiped away with a wet towel. After I finished, I mopped the floor and it looked brand new!
This is by far my most favourite homemade cleaner. It even gets the scuff/paint marks from toys off the walls!
Thanks for sharing, Jessica!
