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 cans. 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 cans (especially reds) Feltpen Fadeout might be needed to achieve quick and perfect results.

Always remember these 3 Golden Rules of graffiti removal:
1) IF GRAFFITI IS NOT COMING OFF EASILY, YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG! You may require a change of tact or use of another product.
2) IF YOU CAN’T REMOVE A LITTLE BIT OF GRAFFITI, THEN YOU’RE NOT GOING TO REMOVE A LOT! TEST FIRST before applying product to an entire job. This way you can determine if you’re on the right track before embarking on full scale removals.
3) IF YOU’RE WORKING HARD, YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG! Forget the scrubbing, blasting and any other abrasive measures. Put simply, either your products are working or they’re not. Any problems can be taken care of with the right technique.
