How to






Masonry paint removal

Masonry Paint Removal using Safer* Paint & Varnish Remover and Masonry Wash


Safer* Paint & Varnish Remover


Masonry Wash


1. Apply Safer* Paint & Varnish Remover generously, with a paint brush.
Use the brush to lay the product on, do not brush out.
2. Allow 30 minutes dwell time.
This is ample time to remove most water based paints.
Test scrape a small area.
If not fully softened, leave for extra time, test scraping at 10 minute intervals.
Always leave our products to soak fully into and soften the coating to be removed.
This means that a minimal amount of mechanical scraping is required,
meaning that the underlying surface will not be damaged.
3. Scrape away the softened paint.

4. Use Masonry Wash as supplied.
Do not dilute.
Scrub firmly enough to generate a foam which will cause deep cleaning of the surface.
Ensure that bristles are not so stiff as to cause surface damage.
5. When surface cleaning has been achieved, rinse thoroughly with clean cold water.
Ensure that no traces of chemicals remain.
Allow to dry.

Dear Customers,

The word Safe has been changed to Safer*.
All products are SAFER* than products based on highly flammable methylal or toxic methanol.
This change is to comply with European Advertising regulation requirements.
Our products remain the same fast acting, non-toxic, low odour products which have been enjoyed by our customers since 1998.
Thank you for your continued custom and support.
