We do a lot of patch work using 20, sometimes the paint retards the drying time of the hot mud. Making us wait twice as long till we can wet sand it. Seems most common with fresh paint. Does anyone have a solution to this? I've tried dry sanding it before patching, using usg accelerator. Dirty water to mix and the same result. Any ideas or solutions would be helpful

I haven't tried heating the surface up first...I have tried dusting it with kilz no significant change. I'll try just bout anything. we usually result in blow drying it which I hate...
