How do you wash walls without leaving streaks?
Washing the Walls
Use a soft sponge without dyes in it to clean the walls.
Dip the sponge into the water and wring it out.
Flat, satin and eggshell finishes in particular do best with as little water as possible, so squeeze out the water well.
On glossy walls, you can get away with using a little more water.
What is the best way to clean painted walls?
The best way to wash walls painted with latex paint is to use warm water and a nonabrasive all-purpose cleaner. Dip a clean sponge in the water, then wring it dry. Gently rub the wall. Pay special attention to areas that get touched often—such as around doorknobs and light switches.
