Great coverage
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This primer did a great job covering up the varnish finish on these old kitchen cabinets I put in my shop. The color coat went on smooth and easy! The cabinets looked brand new when I finished. Only needed one coat of color. These cabinets are in my shop.

    Aerosol Can drips and leaks
    I'm a finish carpenter. The spray on KILZ is a great product, but the aerosol can is terrible. It drips and leaks all over my work. I love KILZ products, but this is unacceptable.
    Response from Franeelly, Kilz Customer CareApr 21, 2022
    Hi Tim - Thank you for reviewing our Kilz Original Aerosol Interior Primer. I'm very sorry to hear that the primer was dripping and leaking, and that it got all over your work! That is not normal. I recommend turning the can upside down and spraying the product for 1-2 seconds to attempt to clear anything that could be causing this. If that is still happening afterward, please do not use the container. I've reached out to you via email to learn more about your project and assist you directly. Thank you again for sharing your honest thoughts and experience with us. I hope to hear from you soon!
      Loved it
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this to remodel my kitchen and cover the old stains around the stove, it worked miraculously!

        Absolutely AMAZING!
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Had a tenant renting my 50 year old, 5 bedroom house and they had 3 large dogs plus 2 cats that they apparently kept indoors and it appeared that they never let their pets out to relieve themselves... nor did they ever clean up the mess the pets made. I tried everything from vinegar, baking soda, industrial cleaners and more but nothing worked to get rid of the awful pet odors. I almost gave up until I came across articles on the internet regarding the success people were having using Kilz original oil based primer to basically encapsulate the problem. People, IT WORKS! I used a 3/8" nap paint roller and basically paired the wood sub floor. It went on smooth & fast and dry time was less than 45 minutes. I only applied one generous coat and when I came back the next day, the place had the new house smell... and still does 2 weeks later. What a fantastic and amazing product! I don't know who to thank but am grateful I read some of the comments & reviews online otherwise I never would've known. Of course obvious thanks to Kilz for such an amazing product as well!

                Easy to use
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used Kilz primer on seeing recommendation on a Facebook post after having to rebuild our travel trailer. Easy to spread. Easy to clean up. With covering the old paint. It also sealed in musty odors that the camper absorb from the previous owners. Will use it again.

                  Goodbye bad smells!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought our first house which is a 1976 fixer upper and the interior had crazy colors in each room but worse than that was the mixed smell of pet urine and smoke. We cleaned what we could but it only helped so much. We used kilz original and bc it was one of the few primers that said it helped with odor as well as color block. The product is oil based whi h makes it a bit more difficult to use and a bit strong of a smell but wow! It sealed everything and now it smells like a new house and looks like one too! We painted one room without kilz and we regretted it when we could start to smell the smoke through it. Another time I went to buy this product the store was out of stock and I got a different brand and it was so much worse in quality and leveling. I returned it and drove to a further store to buy kilz.

                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I painted my wooden fireplace and wanted a smooth finish. Two coats of Kilz, a coat of finishing paint and I have exactly what I imagined!
