Can you recommend a green/odorless alternative to Kilz?

Asked by Ann Morgan

I have severe allergies to all chemical cleaners/paints/fragrances. Need to prime moldy bathroom walls before painting with a "natural" paint. Also, what brand "green" paint do you recommend? Thank You!

Dear Ann,

Lime Prime by EarthPaint may be an option for you. It indicates Zero VOCs and no toxic chemical biocides.

All the best with your project.
