On the last series of Grand Designs someone painted the inside of their house with so called odour absorbing paint. I have searched on the internet but can't find anything. Does anyone know what it is called and whether it is any good?
It was a very square house where he used a lot of commercial products. The house was painted white on the outside and just dripped dirt off it too. As it was open plan they had glass doors to the bedrooms where when an electrical current was put through the glass it went opaque. There was also a swimming pool very near the house and if I remember there was a big discussion about a block wall in the garden. It was on the latest series of Grand Designs.
I can tell you the stoshop paint does work. I got some a year or so ago, just got round to using it in one room, and when my flatmate smokes in there, which she does continuously, two hours after she has gone there isn't the slightest trace of smoky smell.
I'm going to paint the rest of the flat in it too. It means I can have the windows closed in winter to keep warm and not have to worry so much about airing the place.
It is expensive, but I'll save on heating costs and air freshener and all the minutes I spend opening windows and spraying air freshener. Well worth it if you are short on time I think.
My next plan is to see if I can tint the colour a little, without losing effectiveness.
