Okay the sanding screen would probably take the paint OFF! HaHa I use sand paper on a pole rig, it seems a bit gentler.

Well Most people around here have textured walls, so what would you use for textured walls?

I wish someone made a TSP like product that does not require the wipe off step. Just spray on, dry fast, forget it and Paint it!

Why is it that you feel you need to wash or sand the walls, smoke and or nicotine damage? I can't remember the last time we washed walls. Are the walls latex or oil? If they have satin or semi gloss latex on them now I would just slap another coat of the same product on them and be done with it.


In some cases like old thick glossy apartment painting we use 80 grit sandpaper to bite into the surface and provide key., also removes allot of surface impercections
Well i was taught that if the Painted surface/Latex or oil based should have any gloss/shine that they should be sanded so that the paint will have something to bond too, or have the best bonding surface/longest lasting adhesion.

Am i wrong HERE guys???
