Dear teacher,
please help me.

I painted a lot today, but I didn't spoil my closes. I didn't have a single stain anywhere. Nowhere - no single stain.
My question is about the last sentence. If I want to emphasize that I did not have even a single stain, and if I want to keep this structure of sentences, could I add:"Nowhere - no single stain"?
Or maybe: "Nowhere and not one"?

Thank you.

I would simply rephrase your sentence.

I did a lot of painting today without spoiling my closes. Moreover, I did it without any stain anywhere!

I would use the exlamation mark to call attention to.

Try "clothes" instead of "closes".

Thank you. But I want to keep my structure of sentences:

"...not a single stain" I think you mean "clothes" not "closes".
