Sep 29, 2020Primer Tips

If you’re a regular reader of the KILZ blog or a seasoned DIY-er, you understand the importance of priming before painting for most all project types. Here on The Perfect Finish we’ve covered primer tips for kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, and even the outdoors! But there are a few spaces in the home that might be sensitive to solvent odors, and for those we recommend using KILZ Original Low Odor Interior Primer.

For use on interior spaces, KILZ Original Low Odor primer is an oil-based sealer, adhesion promoter and stain blocker with less odor than typical oil-based primers. Available in both liquid and aerosol form, KILZ Original Low Odor Interior Primer features fast odor dissipation technology which means no lingering odor†. Consider using KILZ Original Low Odor in spaces sensitive to solvent odors including children’s rooms, offices and small dining rooms.

The convenient aerosol formula of KILZ Original Low Odor Interior Primer is ideal for small paint projects like furniture upcycling and can also be used for spot priming and touching up interior surfaces. The liquid formulation can be used on most interior surfaces including wood, plaster, drywall, brick, masonry and properly prepared glossy surfaces.

Depending on the type of paint used for your top coat and the ventilation of your space, it is recommended when painting children’s rooms to wait 2-3 days before resuming use of the space.
