Better than TSP in every way.

Can be used straight if need be.

A finisher I know couldn't get a finish to lay down on existing cabinets. She told me no way KK would work. Got a text from her the next day.

Sometimes cleaning and prep is the best answer. You'll probably save time over fighting with a bad surface to work with.

I use Krud Kutter.

Just dragged krud kutter through there today.

Was just talking about tsp with my dad the other day. He said he noticed alot of paint manufactures have either stopped recommending tsp prep. Or warn not to use it before their product. Screws up the bond of the new paint I guess.

Long ago oil base paints weren't effected by tsp prep.bit new latexes don't like it as I understand it.

I've always stayed away from TSP, Krud Kutter I've used for years they were bought by Rustoleum in 2014.

Re: Sealing Nicotine


Krud Kutter for greasy, oily, tarry interior walls. TSP leaves these surfaces too basic. I use micro fiber cloths for final tough cleaning, and throw them out as they get soiled.

Should have got at least a full size spray bottle. If you don't like it for this job, you'll love it for your place.

Re: Sealing Nicotine


Diffent but related .

In the bathroom of the place I am renting every month or two these oily streaks come down the walls and ceiling. Wipe off pretty easily bit more show up. Areas very. Nicotine? Oil base paint under?

Seems to happen with steam from shower. But then again. I shower daily so the two events could be non related.

It's nicotine. Take from an ex-smoker who saw enough of that in hs own bathroom.

This is why you should wash nicotine off, it reoccurs no matter what you try to cover it with.

Gunk from the air getting trapped by condensation / water on the walls.

If you have brownish oily gunk floating in the air you have more problems than the wall runs.

Re: Sealing Nicotine


I agree with washing walls and trim first with tsp or KK. If it is texture ceiling or any type of acoustic tile forget it. Two coats of oil primer can be needed if a freight train has been parked in there running for years.
Allowing the oil primer to dry overnight is key to getting it to seal the stains.
Enjoy, I hope I never do anymore of them.
