What is the best primer to use when painting kitchen cabinets?
According to the Dowdings, the best primer is INSL-X Prime Lock.

Plus, it’s easy to handle, and it’s a good bonding primer for paint to go onto,” says Chris..
What is TSP cleaner substitute?
If you are looking for a more natural trisodium phosphate substitute, borax can be a fine replacement. It doesn’t require all the safety measures of TSP and is inexpensive, easy to use and it won’t hurt the environment. Borax can kill fungus and strip away dirt and grease on porous surfaces such as wood and cement.
What happens if you don’t rinse off TSP?
Washing with TSP dissolves dirt, grease etc but it also etches to a degree. You rinse while its still wet because the dirt/etched paint is in suspension. Left to dry, the contaminates are still there, also depending on how much TSP used might leave a powder residue.
Is TSP a Deglosser?
TSP is in essence a strong detergent and should not be used as a deglosser. However, it is a good product for cleaning and preparing a surface for painting. Just like for any other painting job around the house it is important to work on a clean surface.
What is shellac based primer used for?
Shellac has been used for centuries to seal wood and other surfaces. Good for interior paint jobs, shellac-based primers are possibly the best stain-blocking primers, working well on severe water and smoke damage to walls and surfaces — they even seal in smells from smoke damage.
What’s the difference between Zinsser BIN and Zinsser 123?
BIN is solvent (methylated spirit) based, 123 is water based both are good stain blockers but BIN is better for resin (knots etc) only for spot priming when used outside (no idea why I painted a whole stack pipe in it no problem) while 123 is for large areas.
How many coats of primer do I need?
Generally, one to two coats of primer will suffice for painting interior walls, but how many you’ll need depends on the wall material, the paint color, and the type of primer used. Keep reading for the magic number of primer coats for all types of interior painting projects.
Can you use water based paint over shellac primer?
Can I used latex paint over shellac or oil based primer? Or oil based paint on latex or shellac primer? Yes, you can use ALL 3 types of primers over or under latex and oil based paint. Some glossy surfaces will benefit from sanding first.
Can you paint on top of shellac?
The trick to successfully painting over the shellac is in the preparation of the finish and the wood itself. Be sure to strip the shellac, clean the surface, and sand as necessary. Depending on the state of the shellac, you may even need to consider applying a thin coat of primer before you paint the final coat.
Can I use latex paint over shellac based primer?
B-I-N, developed in 1946, is the original shellac-based white-pigmented primer-sealer stain-killer. Great for use on all interior surfaces & spot priming on exterior surfaces. It is formulated to seal, prime and block out stains on previously painted or new work. Any oil or latex paint can be applied over it.
Do I need to sand before Shellac?
Shellac requires gentle but quick brush strokes. Moving with the grain, as shown in Photo C, overlap each stroke by half an inch. … After two hours, lightly scuff-sand the first coat with 320-grit stearated sandpaper to remove any dust or wood grain and smooth the surface.
Can you use shellac as a primer?
One virtue of shellac is that it dries faster than most other primers, greatly reducing the turnaround time between stages of priming and painting. Use pigmented shellac. Transparent shellac has little value as a primer. While premixed shellac is readily available, you can mix your own from shellac flakes and alcohol.
Why can’t you use TSP with Zinsser primer?
In doing an house where there had been heavy, heavy smoking (the nicotine was running off the walls) I emailed the Zinsser site asking why they do not recommend washing the walls with TSP first. Their reply was that the TSP could leave a residue that made the primer less effective.
Can I use a primer as paint?
Since primer’s function is mainly to bond and cover porous surfaces, it is not made to withstand elements like paint. Because of this, if you leave primer without a top coat (or paint) it will deteriorate and break down, probably in a chalk like form.
