Proper Prep for oil stain on wall
Fresh painted wall...
There is a tight spot I needed to stain/seal (stair) that is tight against a soffit /ceiling. I got some stain there.....

What is the proper prep to clean the wall for another coat of paint.

Wipedown with mineral spirits.
Let dry.
Primers in my stash - BM Fresh Start Premium, BIN Red (oil) and Blue (water) primer

Wipe stain dry. I would use BIN (shellac based), shake the pooh out of the can. I have attempted to cover great many things with oil (coverstain or other) and or 123 water or latex based. BIN is savage stuff. best job at really truly covering stains especially when going over with lighter colors. I may then let the bin dry proper and touch it with few coats of the top coat. All types of chemical reactions happening. Long as you can't see it through the primer the topcoat should cover it.

Just my 02 cents.

One coat of Bin should do the trick, you may still be able to see the stain but the Bin will block it.:yes:

Am I better of doing a light scuff with 80-100 Grit , very light mud pass, red bin and they dry

i agree just try the bin and see how you feel, any more mud just creates more room for noticeable difference in texture.

Bin is some stinky stuff but that shellac works wonders.
