- Pour buckets with the spout at the 12 o’clock position to avoid sloshing and spills
- When pouring stain into sprayers of other containers, always pour while standing over grass or a tarp, not over driveways or concrete.
- Use cardboard or spray shields to help control overspray.
- Because oil is lighter than water, wetting surfaces such as driveways, patios or plants prior to application prevents unwanted stains on such items. Ready Seal floats on top of the water, and will not soak into wetted surfaces. Rinsing areas again after staining washes away the floating oils.
- Never spray Ready Seal on windy days.
- Brush areas of fences or decks that are close to a house or garage first. Brushing out a few feet allows for prevention of overspray on brick or siding.
- Always keep a gallon of paint thinner or mineral spirits close by to clean any spills immediately.
- When spraying fences, buy a four-foot wide roll of construction paper and lay sections of it right up to the base of the fence. The paper will protect the grass next to the fence from overspray and spills.
