The product works very well, but needs more time to dry than prescribed.
I buy from TZP a lot, and this is the first time that i bought a product only to find it was less than half the price in a big box retail store. Do you price-comparison shopping on this!

*****

Had a bunch of old latex paint, needed to get rid of it. This stuff works pretty much exactly like they say it will. Each packet will harden about 2/3 of a gallon of paint.
Pour it in, stir it up well, and wait. It starts to thicken up in a few minutes, and will get stiffer with time. Be patient! It won't completely thicken immediately, so don't get all excited about having to add more right away. I left it overnight, and by morning they had pretty much all gotten hard ( or hard enough to dispose of, anyway..you could tip them over, no paint would run out). The only can that didn't was the last can, which I had a lot of paint, but only a partial packet of hardener left. Although that one still ended up getting stiff over the next few days.
Anyway, it worked for me.

*****

Does what it says it does, but I have found that I need to use a little more than the manufacturer claims I would need. You can find this locally, but it is less costly here on Tool Zone plus site, so buying a little more doesn't hurt so bad.

****

If you ever find yourself looking at a pile of latex paint that has grown in abundance through the years (when did I ever want to paint a room a color named "raspberry beret?"), and your local hazardous waste dump won't take the paint, because it isn't considered hazardous, then this paint drier is for you. Pout it in, the paint hardens, toss it in the trash. easy.

Worked very well, as described!
I washed my brushes in a small bucket then transferred the washed liquid in a bigger bucket.
Even though the washed liquid was a very diluted paint solution, adding the packet of Homax solidified the content of the bucket within 20 mins.
Very pleased.

*****

This stuff is amazing!!! I have used other paint hardeners in the past and also tried kitty litter but didn't work as well. Amount in package worked as described for amount of paint I had. A little expensive but the best solution I have found!

*****

This stuff works great! I had about a dozen cans of paint laying around from previous owners and were years old. One pouch of this and the stuff turned into cottage cheese! Cans that were more than 2/3's full, I added a bit of another and good to go. I would definitely buy again!

****

These packets are small, which I expected after reading other reviews. Be prepared to use several for a gallon. Stir fast, as the mixture becomes difficult to stir in only a few seconds. The reason I give 4 stars is because I don't know how hard the paint really gets even after stirring everything; it's a muddy mess that looks like it's going to solidify. I feel horribly getting rid of paint like this, so I'm going to try to find a more environmentally friendly way of doing so in the future.

*****

Worked perfectly for us. I did notice on the other reviews that it only worked for about a 1/2 gallon of paint. I just combined/reduced all cans to make sure I only used one package for one half gallon of paint. I was skeptical when I first poured it in and started stirring. But it had completely hardened by the next day. I tossed them in the garbage and there were no issues!

***

This stuff definitely works but I found that you have to use more than suggested to get the true hardening effect (maybe half again as much). Also, you really have to mix it well with the paint, which gets laborious as it hardens while you stir. If you want to cut down on labor, have a disposable paint stirrer handy. Don't use a chopstick like I did!
