deglosser


Hello, am getting ready to paint my bathroom which presently has a semi gloss paint. The walls are heavily textured. Now I know I can lightly sand the surface so that my new semi gloss paint will stick to the old. I've been told I can use Krud Kutter's deglosser intead of sanding. Their website says that it will degloss and prepare the surface for painting. Anyone out there have any experience using this deglosser and can confirm for me that it can realisitically be used in lieu of light sanding? Thanks

you dont have to de-gloss those walls. I would wash them with TSP and prime with SW PrepRite bonding primer if you are worried. then paint away.

the only reason to wash is because bathrooms can get nasty and have contaminants on the wall that will affect adhesion.

I have never de-glossed walls prior to painting. I always used semi-gloss in kitchen and bath and either prime or paint over existing paint and have never had a problem yet. I usually wash walls with Dawn or Mr.Clean. Spic & Span has to be rinsed and TSP takes lots of rinsing.
