Do not use scalding hot water to prevent burning yourself.
Now make your wall cleaner: add one tablespoon of Tide Powder Laundry Detergent to the bucket. (You can use any scent or brand you like for this step, as long as the detergent is in powder form.)
Use the mop to mix the solution together while wetting the mop head.
Place the mop head in the spin module.
Rinse the mop head really well by using the foot pump. Kick down seven times to get the mop to the correct wetness. (No drips here!)
Mop your walls in an up and down motion. To get tougher spots, try circular motions as well.
Rewet and rinse your mop as often as needed. Since the mop head is barely wet, there is no need to rinse or dry your walls. It's safe to use on painted walls.
