Answer: 
The best way I've found to kill mold and stay healthy, is to use equal parts white vinegar and hydrogen peroxide and spay it on the mold. This is safe, non-toxic and effective! This mixture kills the mold by changing the ph environment that they need to thrive on. Its much more effective and safer than using bleach!

Answer: 
First, I'd take care of the moisture problem that caused the mold, then kill the mold with a spray-on bleach product and allow it all to dry. Never paint over wet or moist areas--never! Molds, fungus and mildew reproduce using spores that can survive anything but bleach.

Answer: 
Hello and thank you for your inquiry. If your walls have mold, we suggest treatment to remove the mold completely first before you prime. Once the surface is mold-free and fully dried, we suggest either KILZ 2 or KILZ Premium to prime. Both of these products have a mildew-resistant finish. Hope this helps and best of luck on your project!

Answer: 
The surface needs to be clean and free of all mold and mildew – cleaner with bleach or some other mold/mildew-killing chemical. This can then be applied to the surface to seal it. Go to solutions.kil.com for more info.

Answer: 
Primers should not be used as a top coat. We recommend that you apply a topcoat after you use a primer. The purpose of a primer is to give a good base for the top coat. If a primer is left on the surface without a topcoat it can yellow and chalk over time. Also, if a primer is not re-coated after a few weeks, you might experience issues such as poor adhesion and peeling when you decide to repaint. It is Read More

Answer: 
Hello Kat,
We appreciate your question. No, sanding would be needed to remove the gloss of the shellac or varnish. We recommend a 220 grit for this purpose, though a grit as low as 120 could be used as long as it doesn't remove the existing finish. Then, please clean the surface with a non-soapy detergent or a TSP substitute. Well wishes for your project!

Answer: 
Your best results are going to come if you sand the table, because sanding will eliminate any surface film of dirt, oil, or grease, and together with a rougher surface,, you'll get better adhesion on the primer. So if sanding is out of the question, at least thoroughly clean the table with TSP, or better yet use a deglossing product.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 313 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Paint contained clumps of solids that could not be mixed into the paint even with and electric paint mixer. the paint had to be strained to get rid of the clumps. this paint may have been on the shelf too long. It is messy to strain oil based coatings. I think I will go to regular paint store for special coatings as the turnover there is greater for items like this. October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The only primer we use! We love killz primers, they work beautifully in one coat. It's the only primer we use! October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great This product works very good. It's oil based so have brush cleaner handy . Used it to prime old bedroom doors before painting. Also used it on the crown molding and walls. The doors look new now as dose everything else. September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kilz Worked as expected... did everything I needed done. October 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worked as stated Worked as stated on the tin, cant ask more than that September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Removed popcorn ceiling and used this to cover the water marks. I used this product to cover water marks on the ceiling after I had removed the popcorn texture. Rolled on easy. The only downside to this product is that it seems to take a long time to dry and it has a very strong odor. Use in a well ventilated place. September 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kilz it the first time. I like deep colors, I'm going to a lighter shade and want to get it right the first time. So Kilz has always worked for me in the pass, so I'm not going to change a good thing. October 4, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product KILZ is a good product. However it doesn't cover in one coat on rough surfaces like OSB. It is also very hard to clean up! I tried mineral spirits and it worked ok. I really needed acetone but didn't have any. I think it is too expensive for what it does. I bought cheap latex paint for 9 bucks a gallon at another store and covered the OSB in 2 coats. I wouldn't use it again on OSB. Ok for smooth surfaces. August 23, 2016
