First figure out why there's stains.
I'd use Zinzeer 123 instead of any Kilnz product. There to watery and take more coats.

If the stain is dry and there is no further source, the best is either Zinsser Cover Stain or BIN shellac-based primer/sealer. Water-based primers may re-activate any extractives. The products I mentioned are available in aerosol cans, quarts, ones or fives. depending on how big a job you have.

This. Sorry Joe, 123 does not work well on water stains, nor does most any latex primer.

I second the use of Zinsser Cover Stain, an aerosol can is probably your best bet for small stuff.
