Dirty Dirty Fingers.....do I have to go gloss


Basement Stairs with the *ceiling* to the basement stairs is the stairs right above.

So as you walk down the stairs, it kinds comes natural to the hand that you *touch* the very bottom of the inclined ceiling at times.

Kids rec room so it sees lots of traffic..

We're planning to use Aura Eggshell on the walls. I've have great luck with the color and it's scrubbabiltity on it - which is minor, but it doesn't leave any marks afterwards.

Not a big fan of gloss but SHOULD I go semi-gloss for this application or am I wrong in associating *sheen level* with east of taking a sponge / cloth and doing a wipedown

Put something else there to grab instead.

Either one should allow cleaning. Your choice!

Ha. There is a brand new set of stairs and handrails to boot. Stairs are very solid. It's just *natural* to the hand that when you walk down, you just kinda touch the top, just because. I too am guilty of doing it.

The beauty of Aura is it is one of the most cleanable paints in all of its sheens- egg should be fine.

I agree with Brushjockey on this one. The egg-shell is fine. Aura is a top of the line paint and it's known for to be durable and scurbable. If you don't mind the little bit of elbow grease in getting the finger prints off then I say keep the sheen you have.
