  1. Step 1: Dust the Walls

    Cover the head of your broom with a microfibre cloth and use it to dust your kitchen walls. This will remove cobwebs and dislodge surface dust and grime. Keep your eyes protected when doing this and ensure that there is no food and utensils on the kitchen counter. If you are allergic to dust, cover your nose with a scarf.

  2. Step 2: Prepare a Cleaning Solution

    Mix 3 tbsp. each of vinegar and baking soda in a bucket of warm water. Wear protective gloves to avoid direct contact. Soak a sponge in the cleaning solution and wipe your kitchen walls with it in a circular motion. Rinse the walls with plain water and wipe them dry with a towel. Use Step 3 if you spot tough stains on the kitchen walls.

  3. Step 3: Make a Cleaning Paste

    Mix 2 tbsp. of baking soda with warm water in a bowl to make a paste. Apply the paste on the stained areas of your kitchen walls and let it dry. Then, scrub it off and wash the kitchen walls with a dishwashing liquid. Wash off the soapy layer with a damp cotton cloth and wipe the walls dry with a kitchen towel.

You can also clean your kitchen shelves with a kitchen cleaner like Cif Kitchen Cleaner. Check the pack to understand the correct usage instructions.

These easy steps will help you restore the beauty of your kitchen walls. Don’t be surprised if your guests ask you how you maintain your sparkling clean kitchen.
