Surely your ACE at least has some TSP?!?!?!
This requires a good rinsing or 2 tho....

The small box of Dirtex powder (along with other Dirtex items by Savogran) is on their ACEnet.
I could post SKU's Sunday if you'd like.
(WE'VE had it for Yeeears...)

DON'T USE the trigger-spray Dirtex, OR the aerosol version on walls!!!! These are a different animal, and can't be used for paint-prep.

I also searched several local hardware stores and the big boxes recently and couldn't locate the Dirtex other than the spray ones... used to be easy to find...

Faron, those are fighting words!..just kidding.

TSP is too risky. We know it hinders adhesion if not properly flood rinsed and wiped away. The most common failure is at baseboard joints and other nooks and crannies on any paint project.

If you can not find Dirtex, Jasco TSP Substitute works as well and it's no rinse when applied according to directions.

When washing walls, you need two buckets, one sponge and two towels.

One bucket with solution and one bucket with rinse. Rinse will be changed often. Dip sponge in solution and wash. Rinse sponge in rinse bucket *before* going back to solution. Wipe wall with towel to dry and continue the process.

Most local (independent) paint stores carry Dirtex in my area. Ace and Do-It-Best Hardware carry it as well.

Michael,
BRING IT ON MAN....BRING IT ON!!!....(hee-hee!)
(wow....a bit over the top there Faron...)

Shoot! I forgot to get the Dirtex SKU's today!!

If there's one cleaner a Paint-store should have, it's Dirtex!

You're not a paint store if you don't offer Dirtex. :)
