We recently bought a house in which the former tenant had smoked continuously in two upstairs rooms. The smell was practically tangible in those rooms.
We bought Kilz original because it had been recommended by several people, and specified smoke as one of the odors it would cover, and it certainly did.
After washing the walls, applying 1 coat of Kilz and 2 coats of flat paint, (and of course, cleaning the other surfaces in the room) you can't tell that the smoker ever lived here. I have a pretty sensitive nose for tobacco smoke, and even when the sun shines in and heats the room further, there is no whiff of smoke.
Thank you Kilz!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sharky It works great for "other projects" too.
I, on occasion, paint rocks. I use mostly glossy acrylic paint. I have not been satisfied with using other primers. My husband suggested Kilz.
I tried it and "Wow" what a difference. Nothing compares to it. I am now painting all the time and loving every minute. Kilz dries fast, and is smooth when dry.
I no longer have any problems with my glossy acrylic paint adhering to my rocks. If I make a mistake and wash my paint off the rock, Kilz primer STAYS ON. Thank you.
A can of Kilz lasts much longer than any other primer I've used.
I cannot find anything I don't like about this product.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Diana61 We purchased a home with horrible pet odor. You couldn't enter the premises without a face mask. Seriously!
We used bleach, vinegar, and urine out... but, we could still smell the lingering gross odor. We used Kilz on the walls and repainted. What a difference! However, we would like to ask if we can use it on the concrete floors that was under the carpeting. The concrete has absorbed the pet urine and feces and we still can't quite get the odor out by cleaning. We plan on recarpeting over it. But, we also want to know if we would ever be able to place tile down if we use this oil base kilz? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by billzip88 Turned a nightmare into a beautiful room.
The house I bought had a horrible devil red front room, with several coats of paint. I knew the only way to cover it would be Kilz Orginal. From past experiences with paint problems I knew this could be fixed with Kilz. I know have a beautiful room. Eveyone who knows the before and after cannot believe that mess could be covered. I tell every one it is because of my old trusted friend Kilz. It was a nightmare to be in that room. I live on a very small income. If not for Kilz, I would not of had enough money to buy all the extra paint to change that color. It is truly a magical product!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mamakoi Hides stains and orors like a champ!
I use the Kilz Original whenever I paint a room. We have a couple of older dogs who, no matter what you do, love to lean against the wall or cuddle up tight into a corner. Unfortunately, they don't always smell like rosebuds! I make a point to prime at least the bottom part of the wall (up to the chair rail) where they have touched it. Even though we wash the walls regularly, this is a sure fire way to take care of any doggy stains and odors that may be left.
I have used the product for years. I can remember using it when we got black marker on a wall while moving. It's a product I can rely on.
