Get that swiffer out and attach an old clean rag to it and use this to mop down those walls...

Just tried it. Washed down my daughter's wall to prepare to paint it. It didn't get rid of some marks (looks like they were made from pencil at first, but maybe some kind of medal), but overall, the wall does look brighter.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 ounces borax
  • 1 teaspoon ammonia
  • 2 quarts warm water


  1. Dissolve the borax and ammonia in a big bucketful of water.
  2. Scrub a really dirty wall from the bottom up.
  3. If you scrub from the top down, the dirty water will run down over the dry, soiled wall leaving hard-to-remove streaks.
