Cleaning Sidewalk Chalk off a Brick Wall- SOLUTION!

A couple weeks ago I showed you the challenge I had of cleaning sidewalk chalk off a brick wall.

I mentioned the next method I would try to get this chalk off the wall was to scrub it with some baking soda- a recommendation my friend gave me.

So, one HOT morning, I grabbed an old kitchen rag, some baking soda, and our hose.

First I wet the wall.

Then I poured some baking soda directly onto my rag. I then I scrubbed.

And look-


And I didn’t even scrub hard!

I don’t know why this works, I just care that it does indeed work!


(Now I just need to do the rest of my wall- ugh!)

I’d say this challenge was a success, wouldn’t you?
