Re: Sealing Nicotine


Yep, one coat. It's a primer, so if you know what color was under it, you can make it out. However, the walls are white and I have no concerns about my paint colors covering.

Best part is it allows you to go right over glossy surfaces. Even Gripper is now saying you need to degloss, it used to not say that.

Don't know about sheen for sure. Won't be back there till Monday.

Re: Sealing Nicotine


I've got some smoker rooms to clean up.

So what is the verdict?

Krud Kutter plus:

Kilz MAX or Zinsser Smart Prime?

TIA

At the least, I would go with Krud Kutter for hardware that needs cleaning at the same time.

Re: Sealing Nicotine


I had trouble with the shellac cracking. It did cover but cracked.

Did another bad rental with smart prime. Covered stains real well again.

Re: Sealing Nicotine


Ended up with KILZ Max. Because that's what HD had. Friend has a $1000 gift card he wants to burn up.

Wanted 1 gal cans. Guy gave me them at the 5 gal price.
Get to the pro counter, gal knocks another 10% off.

Not too shabby.

Interested to hear how that worked out...

- Originally looking for a 'latex' solution here, meaning 'non-solvent'.
Though I don't know I could get the deal you did.
