1. Preparing the Cleaning Solution
Kickstarting the process, I gave my kitchen sink a good wash.
Filling it up with hot water and dish soap, I was ready to tackle the walls.
2. Wetting the Paint Roller
Taking a cue from Rach's video, I dipped the paint roller into the soapy water.
I then wrung it out so it was wet but not dripping.
3. Wash Rinse Repeat
With the roller ready, I commenced the quick and easy task of rolling it over the walls. This method was really quick.
I then decided to stick it on a pole which allowed me to reach all the way up to the ceiling. (you can see the height I reached on my staircase).
I periodically returned to the sink to rinse out the roller and redip it back into the soapy water.
The roller was a champion at picking up dirt, making the cleaning process a breeze.
I completed cleaning the walls of my living area in a speedy 10 minutes, however I noticed the walls were quite wet and definitely needed help drying out.
So, to avoid any issues that could pop up with wet walls, a wipe with a cloth was essential.
I placed a dry microfiber cloth on my floor squeegee and dried off the walls.
This final touch not only ensured my walls were dry but also added an extra shine to the entire living area.
