Before painting, prepare the equipment to peel off the old paint first. The following are ways you can do to peel off your old wall paint:

  • Dip the brush in the thinner liquid and gently apply it to the wall to be exfoliated

  • Let stand for about 5 minutes

  • After leaving the wall, it will release air bubbles, then use a scrap to peel off

  • Repeat this for the other part of the wall until all of the old paint in the wall has been peeled off

  • After that, flush the walls with water until they are clean

  • Then wipe the wall and wait for it to dry completely

  • Once dry, scrub the walls with sandpaper
