    "Hi. I was asked by the Client to use Ronseal Self Cleaning Masonry Paint (they went for standard white). It was south London, next to a very busy road and judging by the surrounding houses - everyone had mix of rain and pollution staining their walls.

    After two solid coats I have to say that it did the job and of course got bit greyish and spotted in few days but after first rain it went back to brilliant white, just like after the painting.

    Worth trying."

    "You'll have to sand down that part of the wall but as it may be uneven you might have to do the whole area that is needed ."

    "The best way is to use ronseal stabilising fluid. It’s a clear solution that is just brushed or rolled on it sticks like pva so easy enough to apply"

    "Use a stabiliser or sand down and do the wall again in resin paint or silicone-based paint so the rain does not soak in and runs off. Then you can clean it as needed."
