Sugar Soap the swiss army knife of cleaning used as a commercial cleanser to prepare walls for painting or wallpapering, and is very useful in cleaning nicotine stains, grease, pet odors, germs and bacteria; in addition to sanitizing interior walls and floorboards. Because of its abrasive nature, sugar soap should not be used on painted or glossed surfaces as it removes the paint or gloss.
Great for Walls
Sugar soap excels at cleaning walls to prepare them for wallpaper or a fresh paint color. Mix 1/4 cup liquid sugar soap into 5 litres water in a bucket. Wipe the walls down with a sponge dipped in the solution, working from the top of the walls down. Wear rubber gloves as you work. Open the windows or turn on fans to speed up the drying time.
Toilets, Tubs and Sinks
The powdered form of sugar soap serves as a handy cleaner in the bathroom. Sprinkle a little powder into the toilet bowl, then sprinkle more on a damp cloth. Wipe down sinks, the tub and shower stall with the cloth, then rinse the cleaned areas thoroughly. Once the powder sits in the toilet for an hour, flush the toilet or use the scrub brush to remove stains before flushing.
