Removing Cobwebs from Your Walls

You may clean your regularly. You may have your routine. However, in your regular routine, you may notice, every once in a while, growing cobwebs in the corners of your ceilings, and light cobwebs along your walls. The thing about cobwebs is that you don't usually notice them immediately, and you may even just get used to them before you remove them. Even if you dust and vacuum and pick up your house on a regular and frequent basis, cobwebs still happen, and your house won't look as clean if you don't remove cobwebs from your ceilings and walls.

The tricky thing about cobwebs is that they are usually high up and hard to reach, making you less inclined to actually remove them. The key to removing cobwebs, however, is having the right tools. If you go to any store like Target or Wal-Mart, you should be able to find the perfect tool. In the cleaning aisle, you should be able to find a cleaning tool that's really long (it may even have an extension), and that has a fuzzy end. The length of the tool works so you can access places that are hard to reach, and the fuzzy end works to pick up the cobwebs from the ceiling and walls.

The best way this tool works is to twist the tool so that the fuzzy end best picks up the cobwebs. If you don't have or don't want to buy this tool, you can improvise by attaching a cloth or rag to the end of a long rod or dowel and wiping the cobwebs out that way. This method takes a bit of monetary investment, but is definitely the best way to rid your ceiling and walls of cobwebs.

One of the ways to better prevent cobwebs from collecting on your ceiling and walls (this also works to remove them) is to actually wash your walls. All you need is some soapy water, a couple of rags, and a ladder (this can be either a regular ladder or a step ladder). Take your ladder and put it where you want to clean. Take the water and rags up to the top of the ladder with you and just do some simple cleaning. Dip the rag in the water, and simply wipe down the corners, walls, and ceilings. This will probably work best if you do it after clearing the cobwebs out. This cleaning method also better ensures a clean house, ridding your walls of unwanted dust and grime from your walls.

I have found the best tool is just a piece of wood about 7 ft long and 2" by 1/2" If you rotate it around the cobweb ( a bit like making candy floss or cotton candy ) then the cobweb sticks to it and the other cobwebs stick even easier. It is much easier to remove from a plain stick as they can just be pushed off the end using a rag or piece of paper.
