Introduction: White Wall Toothpaste
Having white walls myself I understand the struggle of trying to keep them clean. We end up going to stores to buy cheap chemicals to clean our walls. But we don't realize the damage it can to do to our walls and the danger it can hold for little ones and pets. After doing this experiment I realised that our walls are a lot like our teeth and they shouldn't be handled with harmful chemicals.
- 1/2 a teaspoon of Toothpaste
- 1 teaspoon of vinegar
- 1 teaspoon of Baking soda
Note: If you are cleaning bigger areas multiply the ingredients by however much you see fit
How It Works:
The toothpaste I used had silica and pyrophosphates bleaching agents. Bleaching agents can be found in toothpaste. They are also what help whiten our teeth. So It makes sense why the toothpaste removes stains from white walls. The vinegar and baking soda act as a base for the solution. When vinegar and baking soda are combined a chemical reaction occurs. This chemical reaction helped combine the toothpaste and made the process faster when scrubbing walls.
When I first started I used a baking soda and white vinegar mixture as a base. But this didn't remove a majority of the stains on the walls. I then added dish soap to the base. It was more successful than my first solution but I kept trying to improve it. I ended up swapping the dish soap out with toothpaste, and success! A safe scrub for walls!
