Use zinnser BIN primer sealer. If you Google you can read reports that it covers even cat odor ! I have had friends that used it and they say it is great. Also I saw a reference on GW to a thread that said be sure and use ammonia to wash the wood 1st , if you are going to wash it. Also clean up for BIN is ammonia...use GOOD ventilation with these products ! c

Bathroom reno and smell - Can we get rid of it

posted by: kimmieb on 08.05.2010 at 10:25 pm in Old House Forum

We are in the process of gutting our guest bathroom in a 1950s ranch. When we started the demo i. e. taking the tile off the walls and the wallboard, there is a really strong "old" smell. 3/4 of our house is from 1953. Is there a way to eliminate that smell that seems to be coming from inside the walls. You know that grandma's house musty smell. Just looking for suggestions.

what 10k can buy for a bathroom?

we are in planning stage for master bathroom re-do. my budget is 10k. It will be a DIY project, but we will have plumber to move plumbing. the only fixed item on my list is TOTO one-piece toilet ( we have AS one right now, and I hate it. it seems taking forever to finish flushing and have to flushing few times to stop water from running.) we installed TOTO toilet in hall bathroom, and very happy with it. This will be 3/4 bath with shower no tub. I would like a towel warmer, but it seems very expensive. Any thought on what to get for master bath?
