Vanish Paint and Graffiti Remover is a highly effective, economical, and biodegradable remover for bare brick, stone, and masonry applications. Vanish will remove all types of paints from porous stone and concrete surfaces including cinderblock, split face block, and exposed aggregate. Safe and effective to use on all types of natural stone (such as limestone, granite, and marble), stainless steel, trees, plastics, and playground equipment. Uses include the removal of thicker acrylic paints, paint spills, and larger tags sprayed up with a fire extinguisher or super soaker. Also recommended for the removal of unwanted, old, or vandalized murals. Alternative uses include removal of adhesive from carpet and tile floors and the removal of sealants and graffiti coatings which have deteriorated with age.
Features & Benefits
- Virtually odorless and non toxic.
- Stays wetter longer ensuring maximum dwell time, making it ideal for hot weather removals.

- No shadows, no damage, no harsh scrubbing required.
- Safe and effective for removals on asphalt /bitumen roads, as it will not affect the bitumen.
- 200 sq ft (per threecoats on typical graffiti) for concrete
- 80 - 100sq ft on sandstone, limestone or other soft absorbentsurfaces or on thicker paints where additional coats arerequired.
Product Use Instructions
For typical removal jobs on graffiti and other paint.
Apply several coats of VANISH by brush, broom or spray onto the graffiti and allow several minutes dwell time between coats at least, but the longer you can leave it on the graffiti as a wet mess, then the better results and easier it will be to rinse away (just like soaking a burnt saucepan overnight).
Agitate with a soft nylon brush between coats and rinse with a pressure washer, or scrubbing brush and water.
The main thing is patience.
Paint removal can be tedious if you try to rush things. After all, you only want to do this job once, if possible. Ideally use 1500 - 2000 psi with a 15º or 25º fan jet at about 6 inches from the surface. Do not blast or use ‘turbo’ type nozzles which risk doing damage. When rinsing dissolved graffiti with a pressure washer, try to remove a LITTLE of the graffiti from the bottom of the tag without wetting the whole area. If satisfied, then proceed to full scale. Wash the whole area from top to bottom.
Remember If the remover has not done its job then no amount of ‘blasting’ will fix the problem. Failures are usually a result of not flood coating adequately and not leaving product on long enough and cannot be resolved by blasting too close or at higher pressures.
For removing carpet and tile glue.
Apply VANISH and leave on as long as needed. Scrape up as much dissolved glue as possible before pressure washing with hot water.
1 Gallon of Vanish Paint and Graffiti Remover will remove approximately:
Varies dependent upon the porosity of the surface, material and the type of paint being removed.

Not sure why they did not include a spray apparatus with the bottle. It works great but most usually would be easier to apply with a sprayer. Not rocket science...
Great product, great customer service!
This worked great on some paint in a parking garage with a hot power washer.
Vanish was powerful enough to remove reflective traffic paint off our mural without damaging the sensitive acrylic paint underneath. We always carry Vanish on our maintenance trucks to remove difficult graffiti from concrete, murals and public art installations. It works quickly and keeps our crews from being exposed to harsher chemicals.
