  • Graffiti Removal: Poultice[4.6mb]

    Please see the 'Nitromors' trial to find out what happened next.

  • Graffiti Removal: Nitromors[4.9mb]

    Conclusion
    This second trial using Nitromors, following the first of the powder poultice, had proved similarly ineffective.

    However, we persevered with new trials, ultimately managing to gain a good result by the repeat application of Stonehealth No6 Paintstripper. This proved to the client's satisfaction, so the faintest residual shadow of a stain remained unresolved, however slight its trace.'
