Hi it's me again. The nicotine house guy.
I wanted to start a new thread on how to clean the walls before I apply the primer/sealer.
I am glad I posted originally because I would have filled a bucket with water and probably dish soap and started scrubbing.
What is the best way to clean walls before applying the primer/sealer?
I hear a lot of TSP which I have used on outdoor patios before sealing.
I guess if I don't see bubbles then I don't think I'm cleaning. LOL
Big Bob posted spic and span. Funny because a friend's aunt died and I was hired to clean out the house(heavy smoker) and I mopped the walls with hot water and spic and span. Worked great. It was just by chance. That's what was in the cupboard.
Well, what you are looking for is no residue. Spic 'n Span is a good product that restoration guys have used for years because they use clean rinsing compounds in it. TSP is excellent in that regard too. Detergents are better but you have to use the right amount.
To extend that argument, Windex fits the no-residue bill too; it's why they use it on glass...
“The average American woman is about 25 pounds heavier than she was in 1960...Recognizing obesity as a disease will help change the way the medical community tackles this complex issue that affects approximately 1 in 3 Americans,”
Just be sure and rinse with clean water what ever you do.
Also,I hope you take our professional advise and use the Bin, as ccarlisle has posted . latex or oil primers are not gong to do what you need.
Aslo for the future. do not buy your finish paint at the big box stores.
