Keeping painted walls clean

Painted walls are lovely and give a fresh, clean feel to a home but after a while, all sorts of marks will start to appear. The areas that are particularly prone to marks will be the stairs and hallways as people tend to touch the walls as they walk past. Don't worry these are easy to remove with Gyre and Gymble's #cleanwithfood method! 

Recipe

  • Water
  • 50/50 Castile soap and water with lemon essential oil in a spray bottle 
  • Bicarb soda
  • Microfiber cloth

Cover the affected area with a light spray from the soap / water mix to see if you can wipe the mark away. If this does not work then make a thick paste with bicarb soda and water. Smear a little of this mixture over the area that is marked and wipe gently off with a damp microfiber cloth. It is always advisable to do this first on a small area that is normally out of sight.
