Start by mixing water and a teaspoon of Dawn dish soap into your spray bottle. Do the same with with one of the buckets but use hot water. Fill the other bucket with just warm water. Soak a flat mop head on each bucket.
Spray the wall from top to bottom. Grab the flat mop head that was soaking in the bucket of dawn in warm water, and attach it to the handle. Go straight up and down the wall – kind of like you are painting. Continue this process across the entire wall. Make sure to clean the flat mop head after several passes.
Grab the clean mop head that was only in the warm water and wring it out really well. Give the wall a quick rinse, straight up and down.
Grab a dry microfiber cloth and just go through all over your wall. You might need to quickly scrub a few areas sometimes, depending on the texture of the wall. You can’t quite get in there with the flat mop if the wall is textured, so use a microfiber cloth instead.
