  • Depending upon the type of stain on your wall, you will want to use a heavy solution Quick N Brite spray or the cleaner full strength. For most heavy applications, a little bit of heavy solution spray will do the trick. For really stubborn stuff like pen ink, applying the paste directly will probably work the best.
  • Completely cover the stained area with Quick n Brite and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
  • If applying paste. scratch or use non abrasive sponge to work in and loosen stain.
  • Get your microfiber cloth damp with warm water, and wring out.
