White paint is a staple, so a washable version means you don’t have to make any sacrifices when it comes to style. If you have children, the benefits are countless. Crayon marks? Dirty fingerprints? Juice splatters? Fear not – with washable white paint, scuffs and stains can be easily washed off.
It’s also a blessing in the kitchen in places where you don’t have tiles or a splashback, and in the hallway where there is a lot of traffic.
Aside from choosing a whipeable and durable white paint, there are a few things you can do to keep your walls whiter for longer.
Firstly, keep your white walls dusted. Using a soft cloth to cover a broom or a bristle, gently dust your walls to remove a build up of dirt. This will allow your walls to dazzle more brightly, and will also prevent dirt from being smeared around when you clean your walls more thoroughly.
Once your walls are dusted, create a solution of warm water and a mild detergent, and use a sponge to gently wipe the surfaces. Leave for 5-10 minutes, and then use clean water and a clean sponge to rinse your walls. Avoid using too much liquid, as this can cause water stains.
