Hi,My husband and I just bought a house where the couple smoked for 22 years in it. I tried to wipe down the walls, but to no avail it seeps right back through. What could I use that isn't extremely expensive to seal the walls. I'm looking for something semi-cheap because the house is 2500 sq.ft. and I'm going to need a lot of it.

Many people use a solvent based stain blocking primer to seal out smoke damage and smell. One coat should work and then you can use one or two coats of a good latex to finish the job. You will probably have to scrub the wood work also to get the smell out.

lisakirkendall, KILZ Original is about 11.50 in my area, drys fast and goes a long way. I think this is what I would use. Don't believe anyone when they say latex based primer sealers will hold back smoke stains...Mike
