Using Bathroom After Painting

retiredprofDecember 17, 2010

How long after painting a bathroom should I wait before using the sink and shower? I'm concerned about water and steam, but my guest bathroom is only a half bath.

Paint used was BM Regal pearl.

It varies a little, but I'd give most paints a day or 2 b4 a lot of steam hits them.
Keep direct water splashes away for the same time.

Complete cure for many Latexes is ~ a MONTH.
