How to Clean Painted Walls

Maintain that freshly-painted look on your walls by keeping them clean and free of dust, fingerprints, stains and smudges with Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner. It's important to use a non-abrasive cleaning solution that won't discolor or diminish your paint. Whether your walls are coated with latex or oil-based paint, using Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner on a regular cleaning schedule can keep dirt off painted walls and keep them looking great for years to come.

Directions:

  1. Dust all surfaces to be cleaned. Then dilute 1 ounce of Simple Green to 4 cups water.
    Use a 1:32 mix ratio to avoid affecting the paint on your walls. Spot test a small, hidden area before use.
  2. Spray the Simple Green solution directly onto the area.
    Allow the product to soak for a minute or so on heavy soils such as scuff marks or crayon.
  3. Wipe down wall surface completely.
    Use a damp, clean non-abrasive cloth to remove dirt & grime.
  4. Dry walls completely.
    Use a clean, non-abrasive cloth to wipe down oil-based gloss or semi-gloss walls for a streak-free surface. (This step is not necessary on latex.)
