    Yes, "confidentincompetent" it is rubbish for nicotine stains and water marks. However i used 123 a while back for touching up (30cm square) a water stained gyproc cieling. Then i emulsioned over the hole cieling and the touched up area had the stain still bleeding through and i could see an obvious different shhen coming from the patched area, grrrrrrrrrrr. I bloody had to scrape back all artex on cieling, then seal again with polycell stain block, then plaster over, then emulsion over. Basically the product turned to be nightmare for touching up and stain blocking. Though is is good for other things as you stated :cry:

    As I said third, I still use solvent u/c for stains mostly (thinned with white spirit so it dont look frumpy). Was brought up like that lol, ok these expensive blockers do work eventually they seem to be hit & miss and sometimes two coats are needed but, I feel more confident using me old u/c and know it will work first time. Time costs money for me. Poor old fing ain I lol.
