Advice needed on paint prep...


Kilz has a strong Oder and will make you a little dizzy ,

A little dizzy, in a closet?

How about dead.

If you just get in there and scruff up everything and use the Fresh Start, you will be fine Do NOT use the Kilz2( JUNK)

Just remember that it along with your finish coats( latex) can take 30 days to cure to their intended hardness.

It takes less than 10 minutes to paint a closet. If you are going to be dead in that short amount of time, then maybe YOU shouldn't have been there in the first place.....But hay I'll give you points on DRAMA !

Kilz oil won't kill you in 10 minutes, but it will knock your head around a bit. There are a lot of quick drying oils on the market right now and since it won't be soaking into bare wood, the quick dry will be fine. Kilz Oil is a stain blocker and a brain eater so don't use that unless you have some stains to block.

All good advice. If you are worried about the odor of the Kilz - there are also low odor oil primers eg. Sherwin Williams Preprite and Ben Moore Fresh Start. I agree with Lou about the preference of using the oil primer. Good Luck!

Be sure, and this is very important, be sure, you have rinsed the tsp, at LEAST 2 times with clean water.

Thanks guys! Drywall prep is going well in the rest of the room so hopefully I'll be priming soon!

I just got done TSPing my entire living room; took me the better part of a day. It has a sloped ceiling that that is almost 18' at the crest and 15' at the ends. I used a 12' step ladder, a sponge mop for the TSP, and a sponge mop for fresh water. I only rinsed once (but kept the rinse water clean) Questions: how can I be certain that all of the TSP is rinsed off? What will happen if I didn't?
