When the moneys right:whistling.....I plan on painting the interior of my house. Starting with common areas like living room,dining room etc. Since I'm NOT a proffesional painter I have less than 100 medium to large projects from exterior to interiorunder my belt.

I generally use Behr and have hedvgreat results for the applications I needed it for. I have also used SW same thing.

Most painters I have talked to use SW.I suspect it's because they cater to painters and can handle multiple large jobs without shortages. Were as Home Depot caters to pros as well as every F:censored:KING Johnny(I took two 1 hour HD "classes" and watched a 30min how to DIY show and now I'm a pro extrordinare :rolleyes:) Homeowner.but I digress.

So I have never had ANY experience with the Dutch Boy Brand. Has the "Refresh" brand been on the market long enough for any of you to have experienced or heard positive or negative feedback? I'm not so much concerned about it being "the greatest paint on earth" as I am with the supposed " continuing odor control". Standard arm and hammer products USELY advertise a 30-60 day odor control. Re painting every 1-2 years I would consider it less than that not so much. Also any suggestion on it being used with itself as a faux type finish such as a sponge or pattern roller type?

My girlfriend and I are both smokers and try to keep the house not smelling like an ashtray.So other than the OBVIOUS of us being smart enough to QUIT:eek: we remain dumb asses and are looking for help in keeping the house up with "above standards" than that of an average smoker.

Any positive or negative feedback on this product would be GREATLEY appreciated!

Thank You in advance:thumbup:

And your wife's the superintendent and you're remodeling your house.
Arm & Hammer? I take it that there's baking soda in it? You'd be better off putting it in your tobacco. We are talking tobacco aren't we?

Sure. If you like Behr, you'll love it. Have you checked Consumer Reports?

Don't put much trust if any in Consumer reports or things of the such. I see WAY to much J.D. and associates awards and the such pinned on things I have had bad dealings with.(i.e. D:censored:LL computers. In my house that's a swear word!!!!) I put my trust in pros who deal with stuff day in and day out. but thanks I will check it as a form of reference!

Dude, I'm not even a painter and I know that Behr paint is crap.I have used it with poor results, heard from painters that it sucked, and viewed data that proved it as well. Only positive thing I ever heard about Behr was on a Home Depot commercial.
