How to remove graffiti from porous brick stone & masonry surfaces

For graffiti on porous bricks, block walls and stone, use our Bare Brick, Stone & Masonry Graffiti Remover (BBSM).

On typical graffiti, simply flood coat three times (at roughly 3-minute intervals), wait another few minutes then rinse with a small pressure washer.

Agitation as you apply this product can be of great assistance. Continued experience with the product will enable the user to judge how many applications are necessary for varying surfaces and particular spray paints. On older/thicker graffiti, patience is the key. Keep the graffiti wet with the product, as long as possible before rinsing.

For some inks/dyes and some spray paints (especially reds), Feltpen Fadeout might be needed to achieve quick and perfect results.
