  1. Hi Melissa! I live in a older rental home and some of the walls have hardened yellow drip stains on them near what looks to be where something was screwed into the wall. Any idea how to clean that? I tried a magic eraser but they have proved to be quite stubborn…Your help is much appreciated! If you would like pics or more info you can reach me at the email provided. Thanks!

  2. The 2 different kind of mop to do one job would not work for me. I don’t have a sponge mop or a microfiber flathead mop. I already have a wonderful rag mop and Wonder mop for my floor. I have a tiny house and am not willing to have 4 different kinds of mops. Walls don’t even need to be washed all that often. Can you devise a more minimalist, quick efficient way to wash walls every couple of months??

  3. Thanks for the baseboard cleaning techniques. Mine went for a couple of years because I was busy taking care of my wife and could not get to them. So this video was very helpful.

  4. Actually, walls can get dusty!! Our previous house had bright yellow painted walls, which would dull over time at the top of the wall!!. I finally figured out it was dust and had to wash them down every 6-8 months. I could never get it off fully though and would alot of the time just smear it haha! Was frustrating as! It doesn’t seem to catch as badly with our wallpapered walls in our new house lol.

  5. I really enjoy There are lots of valuable tips and tricks. I also appreciate that you are Canadian and articulate.
