What's The Best Washable Paint


Can you all share what washable paint do you think is best? From what I have used over the years, I think ColourTrend ceramic matt.
Wanna know more opinions.

I use a lot of Glidden Professional Ultra-Hide 150. The Low Luster is great, have it in my own house bath and it cleans right up.

I only pay $17 for a gal here and Sherwin Williams can't touch that price with Duration!

I use SW PC Alkyd for my trim/moldings and usually Super Paint for walls. Pro Mar 200 is good also, imo. 400 for ceilings only.

SW comped some Emerald for our office interior. I dig the Matte finish. Since they comped some, I bought some for the Police Dept remodel because its scrubbale and low VOC. I also used some Pro Classic Hybrid low VOC, both are good imo.

you can scrub it and the paint stays on, and we all know if here is a marke in the middle of he wall even 5 years later you only have to paint that spot .this flat blends in perfect.

Yea its sad Mike about today's world, but I would not let that stop me. I would still do it to a new guy and laugh when I see him complaining when his ass is on fire.

Re: What's The Best Washable Paint
