Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made my rental apt habitable rented a cheap apt, all I could afford, bought a can of kilz and a can of interior paint to spruce up the place. Kilz knocked it out of the park! old stains disappeared, seemed smooth out the finish as well , so when I applied the moderately priced paint the walls looked perfect and the stains didn't reappear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Removes stains, odors and mold We had to buy Kilz 2 years ago when we moved into our home. The carpet installers came for install the new carpet and when they ripped up the old the old owners had dogs that ruined the hard wood floor with urine. The padding was still saturated with urine running out of it as they rolled it up. They had to stop and my Dad and my husband when and bought kilz and had to paint the entire upstairs with kilz to kill the urine smell and mold. Kilz saved us from having to rip up the hard wood flooring and spending a lot more money to start from scratch.
