bathroom paint and bathroompaint additives


I am getting ready to paint my bathroom. I was planning on using some leftover BM Regal Satin on the walls and some semi-gloss on the cielings. Using the semigloss on the cielings ot facilitate frequent cleaning. I then saw some specialized Sherwin Williams bathroom paint. The guy at the store said it has additives to resist mold and mildew.....especially on cielings. Does this paint really offer advantages for walls or cielings? Also, they had a additive for like $5. Are these additives worth while? I was thinking of adding it to the leftover BMfor the walls.

Zinnser makes a product called "ADD-2". Its a mildewcide that can be added to any paint. Benjamin Moore also makes specific paints for bathrooms. The nice thing about Moore's is that not only does it resist mildew, it resists streaking from condensation on the walls. If mildew is the main concern of yours, just use the additive with the paint you already have, it will be fine

I think the additive a the SW store was the Zinser product. The SW store was willing to add it and shake the BM paint for me so I guess I will do that.

Good one, I do the same for people. That stuff is hard to mix in by hand.

The SW guy said it had to be shaken. As bond sais...."Shaken, not stirred"
