I agree

Does that apply for bathroom ceilings as well?

There is a 5 year old thread on bathroom ceiling paint but wondered what is best now. It is part new ceiling and part old and I just sealed/primed with Zinsser 1-2-3.

Flat or semi-gloss and specialized bathroom or ceiling?

Thanks

The current issue of Consumer Reports has a great article on paints. Might be worth looking at.

For a bath with a shower, I would also or put a couple coats of satin or eggshell up there.

Thanks for the reply. I was going to get it, but decided to add the cost to my donation to the Christchurch earthquake relief. Perhaps you could recommend a magazine for disaster relief as your contribution.

From my reading on that paint, there have been several comments on the length of time required to get rid of the smell. Have you had any problems that way?

Its the mildewcide in the paint that makes the smell linger. Some people are more sensitive to it than others. Are you having problems with mildew? Aura Bath & Spa is very good for a bathroom, with minimal odor if any, plus it will resist streaking in dark colors....Perma White is only available in lighter colors.

NC, thanks for the reminder of the bath and spa. I have to do a bath ceiling prone to mildew and was thinking of the perma-white. This ceiling, which has no fan, but no steam damage, has mildew. I know it will come back because of the environment. I'm taking your word, do I use bath and spa or the perma-white? I need the strongest product of the two. Pressure's on. I know how to get to North Carolina.

If there is no problems with streaking, maybe check out Eco Spec Silver. Its an anti-microbial finish containing silver...meaning mildew cant grow on it.

That might be the best option

Out of the other 2 products, they're both really good. The Bath & Spa will have less odor and more color options

Keep looking for me in North Carolina....I'll be safe here freezing my butt off in Michigan

You got me on that one buddy. My very first thought was NC means North Carolina, and still does, even after I learned it stands for North Cromwell. I've even been to your website. Funny how the mind works.

Anyway, the ceiling will be in white dove, BM. The doctor likes to take hot, steamy showers. Looked up the silver, I like the sound of it. Will it stand up under the use it will get? The current ceiling doesn't seem to be anything higher than an eggshell and it held up, except for the mildew. I'm always concerned when I use anything with "Eco" in front of it. Lettuce juice is no substitute for chemicals.

In darker colors the Bath & Spa will be much better. Keep in mind to that most paints that contain mildewcides are sacrificial. The mildewcides wear off over time...The Eco Spec Silver doesnt wear out.

All of BM's new products are more environmentally friendly. They all use their new 0 VOC 100% acrylic tint system.

It sounds like that bathroom needs a fan, or a bigger, higher CFM fan...or they just simply need to turn it on when showering.
