Product Instructions - White Lightning
It’s important that all paint projects begin with a clean surface and White Lightening is the perfect product to eliminate any dirt, grease or grime from your project assuring good adhesion of your paint.
White Lightening can be prepared in a pail or a spray bottle.
Pail: Add 2 TBSP of White Lightening to a gallon of warm water. Use plastic gloves with this product. Stir with your gloved hand to dissolve powder. Using a rag, clean your surface well, paying particular attention to any especially stained or dirty areas as well as nooks & crannies.
Spray Bottle: Add appropriate amount of White Lightening to water based on size of spray bottle selected. Shake well to dissolve powder. Use plastic gloves with this product. Spray surface to be cleaned and wipe down well with a wet rag paying particular attention to any especially stained or dirty areas as well as nooks and crannies. Label bottle appropriately and store away from children.
The advantage of the pail is that you can see how much grime came off a piece you thought was clean! The advantage of the spray bottle is that you have some already pre-made for your next project.
RINSE your project well with clear water and allow it to dry completely before you begin to paint.
Note: do not use White Lightening for normal cleaning. It is a degreaser and a deglosser, and it will affect the surface of anything you apply it to. This product is designed for use to prepare surfaces prior to painting or refinishing only.
