Preparation of Surface
-Ensure that the surface is smooth for optimal end-result (textured or mottled surfaces may show up behind the tile stickers and may affect the tractability of the stickers).
-For optimal tact, ensure the surface is dust and grease-free.
-Surfaces can be cleaned with a weak dishwashing liquid solution or alcohol cleaning solution before installation.
-Some painted surfaces (for e.g. chalk paint, water-resistant paints and oil-based painted surfaces) may resist the sticker; Miss Lolo cannot be held liable for any surface preparation. Vinyl does not adhere to silicone.
Caring For Your Wall Tile Vinyls
-Although vinyl is suitable for kitchen and bathroom environment use, ensure that this surface is not exposed to repeated direct steamy areas and wipe dry with a soft cloth when wet; corners of sticker may lift after prolonged and repetitive exposure to water.
-Keep the area dry. Prevent hot oil spills behind splashbacks and wipe down lightly with damp cloth; in the worst-case scenario, use only mild soap solution.
-Only soft damp cloth to wipe clean.
Installing Wall Tile Stickers
-Separate the backing paper at the top end and fold back. Line up your sticker to position (you can also use masking tape to secure its position).
-Re-check the position of the sticker and start by sticking down the exposed top strip.
-Now pull the backing paper down with your one hand while rubbing a squeegee with your other hand to stick down the vinyl onto the surface (you can also just use your hand or anything flat, but ensure that it does not have a hard surface as this may scratch the vinyl).
-Work outwards to ensure a bubble-free application. Use a pin to prick out air bubbles and rub it out.
-Ensure that corners are stuck down properly from the beginning to prevent corners from lifting at a later stage. Once dust gets in, your sticker will not stick down.
-Some tiles are slightly beveled and you may have to cut the sticker down in size by using a projecting blade.
-Should a corner not stick onto a beveled edge, dampen the area and secure sticker down with masking tape.
-Allow to dry for about 2 hours and slowly remove the masking tape.
