How to Clean White Walls

Here’s a Step by Step Guide on How to Clean White Walls Effectively

Before you start cleaning, remove loose dust and debris from the walls. Use a soft-bristle brush or a clean microfiber cloth to gently brush the walls from top to bottom.


Fill a bucket with warm water and add a small amount of mild dish soap or a gentle all-purpose cleaner. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the paint.

Prepare the Cleaning Solution

If there are any noticeable stains or marks on the walls, spot-clean them first. Dip a clean cloth or sponge into the cleaning solution and gently rub the stained area in a circular motion.

Spot Cleaning

Once you’ve spot cleaned the stains, it’s time to clean the entire wall. Dip a clean sponge or cloth into the cleaning solution and wring out any excess liquid.

Cleaning the Entire Wall

Don’t forget to clean the baseboards and corners of the walls, as they can accumulate dirt and dust. Use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe these areas thoroughly.

Pay Attention to Baseboards and Corners

To prevent water spots or streaks, it’s important to dry the walls thoroughly. Use a clean, dry cloth or a microfiber cloth to gently pat the walls dry.

Drying the Walls

If you notice any areas where the paint has faded or been damaged during the cleaning process, you may need to touch up those spots with a matching paint color.
