“ An easy-to-use liquid that will firmly bond paint to any surface and prevent peeling. ESP is easy on the hands and has a mild odor. It takes the place of harsh old fashioned deglossers that have a strong odor, or sanding which is a time-consuming and dusty job „
When I moved into my flat I was deeply concerned by the hideous orange cabinets in my kitchen. These needed sorting! I knew you just couldn't paint over melamine sufaces because the paint would just chip or flake off. I'd learnt this on Changing Rooms! I also learnt how to overcome this problem...... ESP! Easy Surface Prep! So, down I went to Homebase and bought a tin for around £12. I got it home and followed the instructions. I found out that it is a cleaner and primer that allows paint to adhere to almost any surface. It also does away with the job of sanding on many surfaces. You just brush or wipe it over, and leave to dry. Then you can paint over it. I painted matt emulsion onto my kitchen cabinet doors, then after they had dried, matt acrylic varnish to protect. The result was excellent. No chipping or flaking. You can even paint ceramic wall tiles, at one time not advisable. I have also found ESP to be a good cleaner where white spirit fails. ESP is quite low odour so you won't find it too unpleasant to use. An absolute must for anyone planning to renovate or paint furniture, tiles or melamine.
