Reviving Faded Paint
Kleen Kote is a microemulsion cleaner that is great for removing old paint.
Kleen Kote displaces dirt and grime from cracks and pores when sprayed on a paint surface, and the emulsion dries to a virtually nonstick surface. It is not a permanent coating and can be removed with a detergent.
Cost $3 or less a gallon
Kleen Kote’s cost per gallon drops to $3 or less when diluted with water, making it very cost-effective, according to Deardorff. A 1-gallon bottle of the product costs $36, but a case of six bottles costs $205.
