Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PJCC Spray - Wipe - Works, where household cleaners did not!
First time around this Paint Prep Cleaner did what a multitude of household products would not do.
What I'm pleased by, in the humidity of Florida, is it didn't smell. In my rush to remove the nicotine smell and appearance in a house, I did a bad job priming a door. The area around the door handle will not clean up with daily household cleaners. This prep worked, spray and wipe.
Second task I gave this cleaner was nicotine build up on a ceiling. It was less successful, even after spraying and letting it set as directed.
Recommended for heavy grime but not for nicotine build up. This is the first time I've used a store purchased paint prep before painting.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MushroomHunter Not that effective
I guess I would recommend this product to someone painting walls that don't have years of living on them. I tried this in several areas and honestly couldn't see a difference between the areas I cleaned with it compared to those walls not cleaned up yet.
It has a pleasant scent, if you spray too heavily, it runs down the wall and you cannot get the drip marks off. I ultimately cleaned the walls with white vinegar and am in the process of repainting the whole first floor of my house.
Fortunately, I picked up a couple of gallons of Behr Marquis paint at the Home Depot and the walls are coming out beautifully; one coat of paint and the run marks do not bleed through.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CarterB Removes enough of the stains and grease to not show through new paint.
The cleaner is very easy to use, just spray it on the surface you want to clean. It does not require any diluting.
It does a decent job cleaning in that it breaks down the big stains enough including grease so that they won't show through when you paint over them. While you can still see the stain from grease after using the cleaner it now allows paint to bond to it and the stain can be covered up.
The stains don't totally go away so this product isn't useful for cleaning if you're not going to repaint. It does its intended purpose though.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by momof2kidz Disappointing when used on scuff marks
I had high hopes for this; I need to prep my wooden kitchen stools for painting, and the legs are covered with black scuff marks. I was hoping this product would remove them, but to no avail. I had to resort to my magic sponge. Other than the difficult scuff marks, it worked well, and is safer for the environment than traditional TSP. Recommended, but don't expect miracles.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kiki Works great!
I used this on some black hand scuffs that were on my ceiling for having lights and fans installed etc...i was always afraid of making them worse, i didn't really know how to clean them. I used this product on them and they have now disappeared! You have to wait till it's completely dry to see the results so don't over do it.
Also used on paint and followed direction to let it sit 10 mins - worked great on that too!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Camano Works well
I used this to clean a kitchen ceiling and textured wall for painting. It worked well on the greasy grime on the ceiling and cleaned up the wall nicely. A couple of stains required more than one application as the instructions recommend, and there were a couple of scuff marks that it wouldn't remove that I will sand off .
It has a pleasant scent that doesn't linger.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by maddiegirl Does the job on scuff marks, for sure!
In doing a kitchen project this cleaner really did the trick. I used it on scuff marks and it really did the job and when I went to prep by the stove, it really cut thru some grease that I didn't realize was really an issue until the cleaner starting doing it's job. Very pleasantly surprise. It's a good product & it does what it claims...so, that's always a good thing!

This product works really well. I have a swivel chair in in front of my computer and I am constantly rubbing it against the wall. Needless to say there are or should I say were black scuff marks against the wall. Unless you get right up to it with a bright light you can't see it. In my case is perfect since I have no plans on moving it.
