Don’t Let Accidental Glue Marks on Your Walls Slow Your Christmas Decoration Plan

Putting up Christmas decorations is a lot of fun and gives your home a festive look. It’s one of those times when the whole family comes together to make the house look warm and inviting. However, while sticking your decorations on your walls, you could be left with some glue marks that take the attention away from your décor and on to the dirty spot. What’s worse, if you do not act soon, the glue will attract dirt and make the stain even more difficult to tackle. We give you a few steps you can follow to remove that sticky residue from your walls.

Step 1: Make a Cleaning Solution

In a bowl, combine 2 cups of warm water, 1 tsp. of dishwashing liquid and 1 tsp. of baking soda. Mix the solution with a spoon. Then pour it in a spray bottle.

Step 2: Place a Cloth

Before moving on to the cleaning process, place a cloth on the floor to catch any water drips.

Step 3: Spray

Apply the solution on the affected areas. Let it sit for 1 minute to loosen the glue residue. Then, wipe clean with a damp sponge. Repeat 2-3 times to remove the stain completely.

Step 4: Dry

Take a clean, dry cloth and wipe the area thoroughly. Allowing it to air-dry is the best option.

With these simple steps, you can decorate your home with your favourite Christmas decorations. So, go ahead and adorn your walls without worrying about any sticky glue manning your efforts.

Key Step:

Always test the cleaning solution on a small, inconspicuous area of the wall first to test its compatibility.
