I have concorbium mold killer, I was a bit concerned about paint adhesion over top of it though they say it's ok. What mold killer do you use? I use pine sol(pine oil stays on the surface a bit like tea tree oil I think) with a bit of bleach added for the initial killing. Effective but I don't want an oil under the paint, I have a commercial paint prep which is basically bleach according to the msds.

On a side note with tea tree oil, I find it funny that we are worried about vocs in paint, yet the selling point of Canberra gel is that it is so high in vocs.

I have thought about using alcohol instead, something to get the tea tree oil to blend better essentially, as it didn't actually dissolve in water but stays suspended. As a bonus alcohol helps remove water instead of adding it.
