Only Product for the Job!
Shellac based Primer /sealer is the only product for use with mold, grease, ink or markers. I work painting apartments and the speed of drying time is awesome to be able to finish paint something the same day!! None of the other primers do as good a job!!
Probably the answer to your priming issue
Prep is still the most important part of finishing. Sand, Thinner, etc.
We had a ton of stained oak trim. Sanded the poly. Hit a bunch of it with mineral spirits. A coat of BIN. Then two coats of trim paint. Also used it on areas that have stains or weird stuff. Don't waste your money using this on raw drywall or clean trim. If there is wood stain or stains or just strange material, Bin is the answer.
Just What I Needed!
Used this product to rid our house of a cat urine smell, tried to have the carpets cleaned and that did nothing so we had no choice but to rip out the year old carpet and pad and seal the subfloor. Took 3 cans to do the livings room with 3 coats, but it worked like a charm I swear by this stuff!
