Ask your question

  • If it’s on the roof it might be a bit hard and dangerous to get to. I’d recommend a flat mop with a movable head and some hot soapy water, I’ve attached a photo of what I’m referring to. They have similar ones at Target for $6.



  • A Vinegar/Water mix on a soft cloth works well or, believe it or not Windex!



  • The safest thing to use is the magic sponge by Chux from any Coles store it works perfectly and doesn’t damage its very easy to use



  • Whenever I want to clean walls or remove stains I use sugar soap (diluted) and some warm water (keep well away from children). I find on my walls it is gentle and effective. Whatever is used it is always recommended to try on a small bit of wall and then see how it looks and if it is effective. Might also be a good idea to do some google searches on this issue. Home maintenance and cleaning sites might be useful? Good Luck!
