What is a primerand for what it is used

Primer or primer is called a building material with which help increase the adhesion of plaster and the future finish finish( paint, wallpaper, decorative plasterrka and the like).

If you do not use this substance while performing repair work in your home, the walls may soon begin to crack, and the wallpaper will fall off. This will not only reduce all the efforts of the person to "no", but also, significantly, affect the quality of life and comfort of the person living in this house. That is why specialists in the field of construction strongly recommend that the walls be treated with soil before starting their finish.

We remove stains from the primer from surfaces of all kinds

So, after some time you found stains from the ground on linoleum or tile, which were not noticed during the repair. What to do?

The main methods of cleaning different materials are not universal and should be selected selectively for each specific case. But remember that as a result, with diligence, you can clean any surface.


To begin with, you will need to acquire actual tools, dissolving agents, rags.

If the stain is more or less fresh, then you can wet the sponge in plain water, and gently wipe the stain. If the substance has dried, apply the same primer and allow the surface to absorb moisture. The spot swells and it can be wiped off with a damp rag. If the stain is so dry that this method does not help, use the blade. It will help remove the residue of contamination. Move them in one direction without excessive pressure, so that there are no scratches left on the glass.

Particularly heavy stains can be removed with the help of glass cleaning compounds. For example, Dopomat or Hodrupa. This is a concentrate with low foaming, which is diluted in a ratio of 10 ml per 1 liter of cold water.

It is also useful to have an abrasive sponge, a T scraper, a detergent, and the like. All this can be an excellent help in the fight against stains from the soil on the windows.


How to wash away dirt from the ground from tiles or tiles? Specialists recommend, if possible, first to test one of the methods suggested by us on a sample of ceramic tile, which is finished your floor or wall. So it's easier to find the best option for removing the primer.

To perform the job you will need the following tools and tools: cleaning agents for tiles, soda, scraper, acetic essence, rags.

If the primer is dry, the stain can be removed using the same material. The stain soaked with a primer will become softer and swell, then it can be wiped off with an ordinary rag. In the end, the place needs to be treated with an abrasive sponge soaked in water. Spots are rubbed off gradually, so do not get upset if this does not happen instantly.

Soaked and already swollen stains can be wiped off the tiles with any rags.

If the contamination is so old that it can not be wiped with water and fabric, then you can use the scraper. It is purchased in a construction shop. Such a tool helps to remove the remnants of the primer from the tiles by cutting them into small pieces. Pre-moisten the stain with water, and then with translational movements cut it with a scraper at an angle of thirty degrees.

Next, take a detergent and a sponge to remove small particles of soil, which can cause damage to the tile in the future.


It is better to remove a fresh stain from the primer with linoleum as quickly as possible. If this does not happen, soak the contamination with water and cover with a wet rag. After two or three hours, the spot should soften. It can be erased with an abrasive sponge and then wiped dry with a rag.


Acetic essence - a wonderful option for quick and easy cleaning of plastic surfaces from the remnants of the primer. However, remember that in this case it is important to take precautions, because the vinegar essence, evaporating, releases harmful substances into the atmosphere. For this reason, you need to work in overalls, gloves and a mask. And in the premises of a residential destination you will need to organize good ventilation.

Do not use aggressive

agents to remove the primer from plastic. From a plastic surface( for example, from a window sill or tabletop), stains from the ground can not be removed with acids, otherwise it will simply melt.

Mixture primer is very corrosive and leaves indelible stains if not taken immediately. Nevertheless, if you see the spot in time and wipe it correctly, you can save any surface from contamination.
