Try this clever idea to fix your dirty wall.

Have you just painted your interior walls and they are very clean and super elegant? But it won’t last long! When your little son sees this wall, he will be drawn to it like a magnet because he thinks it is a great painting that needs a little personal touch.

Now start making pretty doodles to customize the wall. Yes, it’s a disaster waiting to happen. But luckily, you can save your newly painted wall without spending too much money. If you used oil paint, this cleaner can remove those scribbles, leaving your wall looking like new.

If you notice that your interior wall is stained, avoid spraying it with cleaning products of any kind, otherwise you could make the problem worse. To save your wall in a natural and safe way, just follow the practical tips of a professional painter.

How do you clean an interior wall with oil paint?

Oil paints are considered more durable than other types of paint. If this paint resists a vinegar solution, you can also use a mild cleaner. This is particularly effective when cleaning kitchen walls, which are often very greasy.

To do this you need:

  • Dishwashing liquid
  • Water
  • A cube
  • Vinegar
  • A sponge
  • milder Entfetter


Take the bucket and fill it halfway with water and a small amount of dish soap. Mix well.

Next, dip the sponge into the cleaner, gently wring it out, and scrub the dirty wall to remove any stains. Do not neglect the emptying phase so as not to dirty the wall with drops of water.

If you find that the stains are not removed, repeat the process until they disappear.

And the outside walls?

Are your interior walls too dirty and need a little refreshing? You don’t need to repaint them because it’s a great investment! If you find that they are just dirty, you can clean them this way. Dirt and dust disappear forever and you are left with a spotlessly clean wall.

For this cleaning process, start by wetting the walls. Next, mix 1/2 cup of outdoor degreaser, 1 cup of bleach, and enough water to place in a pump garden sprayer and spray onto the walls you want to clean. Leave on for 15 minutes before rubbing it in with a brush. Finally, rinse with a garden hose.
