I was hoping to find if there was a difference between vinyl sealer and clear coat.
Did anybody answer the question in red?

Hiya Sac...

Grant brought up the point that no one ever answered your q about vinyl sealer - you mentioned that you're using all water borne primers and finish - does this apply to the vinyl sealer and clear coat too?

Typically clear vinyl sealers are for use beneath hot solvent topcoats (not water-borne), such as solvent lacquers, some epoxies etc. They are sometimes used as "sandwich" type primers to protect a solvent sensitive coating from a hot solvent finish coat. If that's the case, it doesn't sound like your finish is a water-borne clear. If it is a water-borne clear, are you talking about a water-borne poly? ...or a water-borne lacquer (CAB lacquer)? In either case, a vinyl sealer wouldn't necessarily hurt anything, but is not water-borne, and is way over-kill for what you're trying to finish.

Now, to further confuse the issue - water-borne polys typically don't call for any type of sealer as there can be compatibility issues with those components that make a sealer a sealer...Plus, most (not all) wb polys are not really an easy product to spray - they can be, but the recommended method is usually brush app.

And if you're considering the CAB lacquer (water-borne), CAB's are not always the best recommendation for kitchen cabinets as they are not typically very resistant to oils and grease, and can soften from detergent cleanings (and in the method you've described, they really wouldn't need a sealer anyway).

Let us know what the clear vinyl sealer and clear coat actually is that you're considering - but with the information we currently have, I think I'd recommend the water-borne poly with no sealer, and brush applied as opposed to spray.

Anyway, could someone explain how to do the "scrub down" step? I have to paint my wooden cabinets too. I also want to clean my latex walls before repainting them. I don't know the best product to use.

I accidentally found "Liquid TSP Substitute...cleans surfaces in preparation for painting." Before painting over semigloss latex, I'm thinking I should clean with this stuff, sand, clean again with this stuff. I heard tack cloths have oil so I guess it's better to wipe the sanding dust off with a damp rag or this stuff. I wonder how many professional painters would bother.

Liquid TSP cleaners, Dirtex, Krud Kutter (maybe the same) are possibles. Be sure whatever you use you follow the directions as to rinsing, important, especially if it contains phospates.

Two washings seems overkill to me. Fortunately, I've never done a cabinet job so dirty that I had to wash first to prevent my paper from gumming up. Except that is in rental units where, mysteriously, that grease helps paint bond better. Real TSP etches surfaces as well as cleans, if you're a good rinser.

I would sand the cabinets, then wash.

Depends on how dirty they are, you don't want to sand the grease into the wood.
I recently painted my mother in laws cabnets that were probably never cleaned(properly) for 30 years.Sure did not want to sands then first

I, for one would.
