Sherwin-Williams' New Sanitizing Paint Can Actually Make Your Home Cleaner

Paint your way to a germ-free bathroom or kitchen.

We've written before about paint colors that can make your home look cleaner, but thanks to Sherwin-Williams' latest innovation, paint can now actually make your home cleaner. SuperPaint with Sanitizing Technology comes in 540 hues and applies just like standard interior latex paint, but there's more to this paint than meets the eye. It can help rid your walls of harmful bacteria, making it ideal for high-traffic areas like the entryway, kitchen, and bathroom.

This EPA-registered paint kills 99.9 percent of certain types of bacteria, including Staph and E. coli, within two hours of exposure. So if you just moved into a new home and want to ensure the bathroom is germ-free, a fresh coat of paint is a great place to start. Over time, if the painted surface is maintained and kept free of damage, it will continue to kill 90 percent of bacteria for up to four years. An added bonus: Since this paint is available in a satin finish, the slightly glossy texture is easy to wipe clean. A paint that sanitizes your walls, delivers a dose of color, and is easy to clean? We consider this a win-win-win.

Ready to paint your way to a cleaner home? First choose from over 500 colors from the Sherwin-Williams' Living Well Collection. Here are a few favorites for inspiration.
