Nicotine Ceilings already painted


I have been asked to paint a textured ceiling which is HEAVILY nicotine stained. The problem is that the ceilings have been painted twice with a latex paint and the stain obviously has bled through. I figured a couple coats of Zinsser oil base followed by a latex flat should do the trick but I wondered if anybody knew of a primer, equal in stain blocking power but without the heavy, eye burning, sinus clearing, I'm getting high smell.

just suck it up and do it right ,zinsser oil cover stain . open a window and vent it outside with fan. for nicotine its the only way . the big boxes sell it for about 22 dollars. you can use a old brush and roller cover and pitch when done .dont rush dry times then 1 or 2 coats of latex. p/s one good coat of cover stain properly applied will be fine .

If you had caught it before it had been painted, I would tell you to wash it with a TSP solution, rinse and then use Zinnser's B-I-N. That is what we did in the foreclosed house we bought that had been smoked in pretty heavily. Can't even get a whiff of smoke anymore. It was a lot of work washing all the walls, ceilings, and trim, and then having to prime and paint them but it worked fantastic.

I have always used Sherwin Williams Pro Block over nicotine and other interior stains. I've never had a problem using this primer to block stains. I know some will say different, as they are use to using oil and shellac for stains, but there are some great latex stain blockers on the market.

It is virtually the only primer I use for interior. Unless I was going to paint plaster or a wall that previously had wallpaper on it. I can use problock primer on a ceiling followed by one coat of promar 200 flat and the ceiling will look great.
