Kilz' new Clean Start primer preps walls for fresh paint and is eco-friendly, too.

After clearing out the contents of our closets over the weekend in preparation for the crew of painters who will be coming to our home later this week, I found a small oily mark on the wall near the baseboard in one of the closets that must have been made by some wood stain I had stored on the floor. It’s nothing a little Kilz primer can’t cover, so I’m not worried about it. Thankfully the Kilz company has just launched Kilz Clean Start, a new zero-VOC primer, which means the product is not only superb for prepping walls for a new coat of paint, it’s now eco-friendly, too. Here are a few of the good things the new primer does:

Protects indoor air quality by eliminating VOCs (the volatile organic compounds or toxic fumes that are released into the air while the paint dries).

Delivers the quality performance expected from Kilz primers.

Allows for fewer top coats of paint, thus reducing costs.

Provides sealing and stain-blocking power.

Emits low odor during and after application

Cleans up easily with soap and water.

Provides a mildew-resistant finish and blocks tannin bleed.

Improves and strengthens top-coat paint appearance.

Perfect for DIY painters and professionals alike, Kilz Clean Start can be used on most interior and exterior surfaces, including woodwork, drywall, plaster, paneling, masonry, brick, painted metal and properly prepared glossy surfaces.
