Stain Eliminating Primer is a safe and effective bonding agent and stain eliminator in one! The primer can be used on a variety of surfaces including decks, concrete, walls, furniture, and cabinets. The primer is available in 4 different colors: Clear, White, Gray, and Dark Gray. Use the White primer under whites and light colors. Gray primer should be used under medium colors and reds. Dark Gray or Clear primer are used under dark paint colors or whenever you are distressing. We recommend using our primer under white or light colors to prevent wood tannin bleed through. And, it should be used under all One Hour Enamel Paint applications for superior bonding durability.


  1. The surface must be clean and free of dirt, grease, grime, wax, and chalk. Remove all loose or flaking paint by scraping, wire brushing, or sanding. Fill all holes and cracks and any voids or surface imperfections.
  2. Stir product with a circular, lifting motion until the product is uniform throughout.
  3. Wise Owl Stain Eliminating Primer may be applied by brush and roller or by spray. For best brush application results, use a quality nylon/polyester brush and a 3/8” nap cover. It may be thinned with up to 10% water for spray application.
  4. Dry to touch in 1 hour, reapply in 4 hours under normal drying conditions. Sealing some stains may require two coats and a longer reapply window to allow the primer to dry thoroughly prior to finishing. This dry time is what seals in those stains and tannins.
  5. After painting, wait 24 hours to apply the topcoat.
  6. Clean brushes and rollers in soapy water immediately after painting.


Priming is especially important if you are painting anything white that is a Depression-era piece. Woods that are notorious for bleeding are Mahogany and Cherry.

It is recommended to prime with Wise Owl Primer before using the One Hour Enamel for extreme adhesion of the paint to surfaces. This increases durability and longevity. Cabinets, tile, and floors should ALWAYS be primed without exception.

Clear primer will appear milky white in the can. However, it will dry clear.

Coverage per Quart is approximately 160 square feet.
