How to remove Stains? Stains such as tea, coffee, ketchup, lead pencil, sketch pen, lipstick, fruit juice, hand stains, body grime can be removed with a clean rag/sponge soaked in approximately 5% detergent solution (5 gm of solid detergent in 100ml water). Liquid detergents can be used directly. (It is to be ensured that the detergent does not contain bleaching agents to avoid discoloration of the painted walls)

Wax crayons and writing ink marks can also be removed with detergent solution. However, best results are achieved with a clean rag soaked in white spirit or mineral turpentine oil.

Light waterborne stains of masala powder, curries etc. can be removed with a rag soaked in detergent solution. However, oil borne stains of masala, turmeric and curries may be difficult to remove completely.

  • Stains are easier to remove if the wall surface is smooth
  • Stains are easy to remove when fresh. May not be completely removable after 7 to 10 days
  • After cleaning the stains, wipe with a clean dry cloth while the surface is still wet

Surface Preparation: New concrete / plaster surface should be allowed to mature properly. Ensure surface is clean, dry, free from all loose particles, dust, dirt, grease before application. All surfaces should be thoroughly rubbed down using a suitable abrasive paper and thereafter wiped off. Suitable remedial measures should be taken in case of water seepage / leakage problem. Fungus affected areas need separate treatment.
