  4. Always perform a test of the product on a small area before use.


  1. Apply the mixture to the dry surface using a sprayer, floor brush, or paintbrush.
  2. Let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Reapply the solution if it dries during the waiting time; the surface should remain well-saturated with the product.
  4. Scrub the surface with a stripping brush and rinse thoroughly with plenty of water OR use a high-pressure water jet (1000 to 3000 psi) to remove the stain. Rinse until all foam is eliminated.
