white paint turning yellow


Reading through this thread, and just wanted to clarify:
We have ALOT of trim to repaint in a whole house remodel project.
Here's what I'm doing:
1.)Trim has been taken down.
2.) Loosen dirt with a steamer
3.) Wipe off 2X with a strong ammonia & water solution
4.) Wipe off with plain water
5.) Prime with Gripper
6.)Finish with 2 coats satin Muralo waterborne (airless sprayer)

Will the ammonia solution cause any problems?
Do we need to sand between the primer & 1st coat or between the 1st and 2nd coat of Muralo?

Thanks!!

It used to be that oil finishes gave a superior finish to waterbased enamels but I am not sure any more. 100 percent acrylics will certainly hold their color and would certainly be an answer to the inside of closets even if you wanted to stick with oil on trim elsewhere.

I used less and less oil toward the end. I would clean and scruff oil finishes, apply an alkyd primer/underlay and then finish with nice quality acrylic semi-gloss. I added Floetrol and believe I achieved the same surface as I could with oil. Of course you have to work a little faster with acrylics but with practice that is no biggy.

Unless you wear the same pair for a number of days in a row. Then you want to alternate between front and back and inside out for a full four days before spraying with Febreeze. You should not have to wash 100 percent cotton underwear more than once every month or so.

Thanks!!
I'm thinking my question has gotten lost in the "on-going discussion" - I appreciate any help or feedback...thanks!

Couple of Q's back-
why have you removed the trim?
There are better prep cleaners than ammonia- Krud Kutter, Soilex, TSP or TSP substitute.
Steamer? Wow- they must really be bad. Might cause problems with the wood.
Gripper and Muralo sounds fine.

Umm - yeah...house was a bank repo (former NFL player and too much partying - who knows what all was on the walls, trim, etc. I'm steam cleaning everything! But we love the house!)

Ok, I can use another cleaner, no problem.

Brushjockey, I see you are in MN - I should just hire you!!

Im in S Mpls...

Also- Please answer why you removed the trim.. are you re rocking?
This will be a lot of work to get to refit right.
And one thing not on your list is a light scuff sand before priming- , but if you are reapplying the trim you will have nail holes to fill, caulking- all sorts of stuff.

We removed the trim for a number of reasons - renovated 1 huge bathroom into 2, so new sheetrock there etc., we are increasing the size of what doorways we can, so we need to recut alot of the base (shorter), casing, et al.

Some of the trim was "damaged" - but between the renovation and other changes, we have enough to match (some closet pieces will be used and replaced with a more simple moulding.)

This is just one floor of a 3 floor project - we may or may not remove it in other rooms. This is where we saw most of the "abuse and neglect", so there was considerable sheetrock repair done in all of the rooms as well. It seemed the trim was in the way in most places.

We are planning to fill all nail holes, etc. It's ALOT of work, but we have quite a bit of experience and time...

You need to increase the size of the doorways that a football player lived in?

How big are you

you like a sumo wrestler?
