Washable Flat or Eggshell Paint?


I was going to paint the interoir of my house with eggshell enamel since I have two young kids, but I was just told today that there is new washable flat latex paint that is just as washable as eggshell. Any opinions?

Depends on which one you mean

Zinsser has it's Perma-White that's very washable, and it's "eggshell" is pretty flat
There's a Sherwin Williams washable flat that's not bad either
The eggshell is more washable though

Porter Paint makes a truely washable flat and a scrubbable eggshell. It is their Silken Touch line of paint. A typical eggshell will always be more washable than anyones flat, like Slick said.

Thanks for the quick replies - I am looking at Benjamin Moore Regal (I believe Matte finish is the washable flat).
