Rated 5 out of 5 by from KILZ Stainblocking Paint & Primer My husband and I moved into our old farmhouse about a year ago and have constant projects going. KILZ stainblocking paint and primer has helped make our painting projects easier and quicker, especially on the water stained walls in our bathroom and water stained ceilings throughout the house due to a leaky roof that has since been repaired. I would recommend this product to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saving Time! I used the KILZ Stainblocking Ceiling Paint and Primer after I scraped the popcorn texture of the ceiling in my guest bathroom. The paint and primer was easy to use, provided excellent coverage, and my ceiling looks new! I saved a lot of time by using the paint and primer because I didn't have to prime, wait for it to dry, and then paint. It was a professional-looking job completed by myself, an amateur!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kilz is all we use! No matter what we're painting, we always trust Kilz for the job! We bought a house with hideous wallpaper that we wanted to cover. Kilz had no problem covering up the dark green stripes. The ceiling had grease spots in the kitchen and stains from a leaky roof. After we put on a new roof, it was Kilz to the rescue again to cover up the stains! I would recommend Kilz to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 50 years worth of nicotine build up...GONE We bought this after we purchased my grandparents long time home. They both smoked in the home for 50 years. The ceilings and walls were tar and nicotine infiltrated and so so yellow! This blocked the stain and odor and allowed us to continue with our remodel without a ton of coats of paint! We will be buying more as we move onto remodeling the next room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smoke stains gone We bought our house but had to paint all the walls due to the previous owners being smokers and it covered up the yellowing from the nicotine. I was so happy, it made our home look fresh and new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing better than a nicely painted room We moved into a farmhouse a year ago. At first we thought the house would be over our skill set but one job at a time we are getting closer to our dream house and Kilz has helped so much! Every bad wall gets a fresh coat of Kilz paint and it covers the toughest stains and smells. We painted every room in our house with Kilz paint and now there is no animal smells and all the rooms look great!
