Sticky muddy surfaces are cleared using sharp objects such as knife then getting rid of the dirt before starting the thorough cleaning.

• Wash with the built-in concrete scratch mix. Ensure that you remove the concrete scratch mixture and fuse it with two tons of water. Scrub the garage floor and rinse properly. This leaves your floor amazingly clean.

• Let the concrete dry up and start taping. Ensure that your garage floor is well tapped using a scotch blue exterior tape to cover the edges to prevent the paint from splashing to the garage walls.

• Start painting your concrete garage floor using the required brushes. Then use rollers to spread the paint evenly throughout the surface.

• Pro tip, do a 4X4 square at a time, then sprinkle it with what comes in the kit (a lot of them come with sprinkles).  

Once everything is done, let it dry for a good 24 hours and voila!  A brand new looking garage.
