Best Primer and Ceiling Paint for Smelly Old House
I am moving into an older home that has a lovely smell combination of cigarette smoke and cats (lovely I know). I am ripping out all the carpeting, am going to take down all the wallpaper and repaint the ceilings. Several people have said Kilz Primer is the best. I have read to clean the ceilings with TSP solution and some have said scrubbing bubbles.
My question is, is Kilz the best primer to cover the smell (after I wash and dry the ceilings)? And is there a "better" ceiling white paint than others. Thanks!
