Postby Chantal » Fri Jul 27, 2007 10:47 am

When i paint the skirtings & woodwork with white gloss it goes yellow within a couple of months.
Is there a special paint that I need to use?

I think Dulux have an anti yellowing paint if they don't let google be your friend. Basically the cheaper your paint the quicker it will go yellow, I always use Dulux trade paint and haven't had any problems, having said that it does depend where your painting is situated ie direct sunlight or near a cooker or any other heat source.
