Why does my flat or low sheen paint show handprints, marks, and shows the areas where I tried to scrub them off?
In general, flat and low sheen paints do not have a high amount of scrubbabilty. Areas that are of higher traffic or that are washed should be painted with a higher sheen product. At minimum, a “Satin” type or higher sheen is usually recommended in those areas for their overall durability. Johnstone's Washable can protect your wall from those everyday marks and spills that can be easily wiped away and is ideal for use in those busy areas of the home.
