Best paint for over the shower??

gardenandcatsJuly 2, 2011

We are repainting the bathroom. I have a bath room fanwhich we always run, but still find I have a minor issue with mold mildew right above the shower /tub. What paint would be best to help retard this from happening?

Have a paint store mix some M-1 Mildewcide into your last coat of paint.
Or....use Zinsser's Kitchen & Bath paint in Satin or S/G.

>>>> Also-
* Run that fan for 10 minutes AFTER shower as well!!
* Don't have a window open in cool weather during showers. It makes matters worse!!

Are the problem walls exterior per-chance?
