TSP vs. Regular cleaning solutions


What's the difference between washing the wall or woodwork down with tsp versus other stuff prior to painting? Pinesol, Mr. Clean or the like? And is there a certain period of time during which the tsp cleaning needs to take place prior to the painting? Within days? hours? a week?

Thanks

TSP not only works very well, but more importantly will not leave any residue behind. Products line Pinesol, Murphy's oil, etc all leave a residue that will prevent the paint from adhering properly. After you clean there is no set time period. If the walls or woodwork get dirty between the time you clean and the time you are going to paint, clean again.. =)

CORRECT!!! TSP is the best pre-wash/cleaner for painting purposes. No residues are left behind.
