Pretty common problem that I normally would just scrub down with a good dose of TSP but in in my haste to get started I realized I had no TSP.
So instead of running off to the nearest box store I used oxiclean. Worked fine enough, but now it seems I have a slightly chalky residue on the walls ( oxidation layer Im guessing)

Question is: Will this interfere with Kilz /paint adhesion? should I rewipe the walls using water ( or some other solution) to remove the chalkyness or just skip the rinse and Kilz it?

Sounds good. Thanks for the reply.

I must have spent an hour searching the interwebs about the effects of oxiclean on latex paint to little avail. Their website was no help in explaining why exactly not to use it.

No harm in giving it one more cleaning I guess. Wouldn't recommend using oxiclean without a separate rinsing solution before painting. It did do a good job at cleaning though I must admit.
