Going to paint my kitchen cabinets. Have any of you tried the liquid sandpaper and is it any good.

I have never once used liquid sandpaper, and have done tons of paint jobs that turned out great.

My advice? Take a cabinet door off, and carry it into a pro paint store like Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore. They can best advise you on the needed prep, primer and paint coat for a successful job you can be proud of.

Cleaning the surface with TSP and rinsing off with clear water wet rag, would be my first step (it will remove any grime and grease from cooking). If they tell you that you need to sand, you might invest in an electric sander and save some grief.
You are saving money on doing it yourself, so invest in the proper tools and quality paints.
