Wash---let dry--lightly sand the walls--it's surprising how many little bits of crud will be stuck to the surface. A latex primer is a very good idea.--Mike--

CVC- the best primer for after stripping is Zinsser Gardz. It is a clear bonding and penetrating sealer, and is actually superior to oil for this.

good luck.

is that a laytex product ?? So its not white colored ??

Also I have other walls that I stripped before and washed down and painted with laytex paint, they look fine but If I want to repaint I can just go over the flat laytex on these walls right ?? I assume that IF I painted these walls and the paint is fine then it must be stuck and there must not be any glue on the walls right ??

The problem - that's being solved with the gardz - is that glue reside, particularly thick spots, are reactivated later either by the moisture in the paint or even humidity getting through a paint to the glue . It will expand , crack and look bad. Gardz (or oil) will create a vapor barrier that moisture will not penetrate.
Your previous rooms might be ok to repaint, but as stated, as long as nothing is making a barrier to any glue, it could be problems in the future. It's a crap shoot.
Gardz is unpigmented, a waterborne product that is very thin. It will also dry and be ready to recoat in an hour.
It's the stuff. Believe me now or believe me later.

And it's Latex, not laytex.

On of them has 2 coats of two different colored paints doen a few years apart and never had a problem.

Humm...So...IF I repaint the other rooms that are painted I still should use Gardz before recoating ???

Also any other product I can use other than Gardz because noone around here has that Zinnser product
