How to use One Coat Stain Guard

Before you start

Make sure that the room temperature is above 10°c and open doors and windows for added ventilation. Protect the surrounding area and anything you don’t want to get paint on with a dust sheet.

How to prepare a wall

  1. Sand off any loose of flaking paint so you have a smooth surface to paint.
  2. If you want to change the colour of your walls, do this before putting on the stain guard.


  1. Give the stain guard a really good stir to smooth it out.
  2. Pour the contents on the tin into a tray and coat a brush or roller. Wipe away any excess paint on the rim of the tray.
  3. Apply the stain guard in the same way you would any other paint.
  4. Your paint will be touch dry within two hours and completely dry in 24 hours.

And that’s it, job done!

Don’t cover your stain guard with another paint as this will stop it from working.



Stains and marks can be easily wiped off the wall.

Brushes and rollers can be cleaned in warm soapy water.
