Wipeable & Washable Paint

Wipeable & washable paint is paint that once applied can be cleaned using a cloth without scuffing the paint film. This makes it as easy as possible to keep your walls clean, which is especially useful in bathrooms, kitchens & children's bedrooms that may require more consistent cleaning.

We stock all major trade paint manufacturers, including Dulux Trade & Crown Trade, so you can get a high-quality paint at the best possible prices. Trade paint is much higher quality, has a higher coverage and generally provides much better value for money than the cheaper retail paints that you find in large DIY stores. Anyone can buy it, meaning you can get a professional product at trade prices.

If you require any help deciding exactly what product is best for you, get in touch with our team of experts who are on hand to assist you. Send an email to or send us a message on social media!

What Is Wipeable & Washable Paint?

When walls become dirty, they leave marks that cause a real eye-sore, often leading to a wall having to be repainted. This is why washable and wipeable paints were developed, that can be cleaned using a cloth to remove any scuffs or dirt. This is done by adding resins to the paint such as vinyl or acrylic that give it added durability, so that the paint film itself is not damaged when cleaned.

There is a difference between a washable paint and a wipeable paint. A wipeable paint can be lightly wiped with a damp cloth. These come in the form of vinyl matt paints, that are standard emulsion paints that have added vinyl in their formulation. This is more often than not found in the trade version of matt emulsions, which is why many people opt for trade vinyl matts when picking a standard matt emulsion to use on the interior walls & ceilings. These are suitable for low-traffic rooms that may need the odd clean down here or there.

Some other paints have been developed using acrylic resins that have even more durability than vinyl emulsions. These are durable emulsions that can be washed, or scrubbed without compromising the integrity of the paint film. These durable emulsions are perfect for high-traffic rooms such as hallways and high-moisture rooms such as kitchens or bathrooms. Examples of these paints are Crown Trade Clean Extreme Scrubbable Matt & Dulux Trade Diamond Matt.

Wipeable & Washable Paint Finishes

As with any paint, it is important to understand the finishes they come in. Washable and wipeable emulsion paints come in a range of finishes, that includes matt, eggshell, silk & soft sheen, which all vary in their level of sheen. The higher the sheen, the more reflective a paint finish is and the more durable it is. While gloss and satin paints are able to be cleaned, these are not emulsion paints to be used on walls or ceilings.

  • Matt - the 'flattest' finish of emulsion paint, making it the most modern and popular finish. It is perfect for covering imperfections on walls but is the least durable, which is why specialist durable matt finishes have been developed
  • Eggshell - with the same sheen as an eggshell, eggshell emulsion paint is perfect for a slightly higher sheen than matt, but less than silk or satin. It is ideal for bedrooms, living rooms and offers more durability than a standard vinyl matt
  • Soft Sheen - with a similar mid-sheen finish to satin or silk with a slightly more subtle finish ideal for interior walls
  • Silk - a mid-sheen finish that is traditionally used on interior walls & ceilings

Which Paint Brands Offer Wipeable & Washable Paint?

There are a wide range of trade brands that offer excellent ranges of wipeable & washable paints, that include:

Here at Painters World we only stock trade paints. This is due to the fact that trade paint is much higher quality and offers better value for money when compared to retail paint. You may be asking what is trade paint? Trade paint is designed to be used by professional decorators who require a high quality paint that will leave a consistently professional finish in as little time as possible.

Retail paints are generally lower quality as they are made to be as cheap as possible. This is because many homeowners would rather save money on the paint they use, but not to realise that a cheaper paint will end up costing them more in the long-run. Ultimately, for a small increase in price you can get a paint that will save you time, will leave a better finish and could actually save you money long-term thanks to its durability.

Anyone can benefit from the value for money that a trade paint offers as you do not need to be a professional decorator to buy it!

Wipeable & Washable Paint Colours

A question we get asked a lot here at Painters World is what colours are the paints we sell available in? Well, the majority of our paints are available in 'tinted colours', which means they can be mixed in almost any colour thanks to our paint mixing service. That means that you can pick the best paint for you in a colour of your choice. We can mix any RAL, British Standard & NCS colours, as well as equivalent shades of almost all major paint manufacturers, including designer shades. You can either type in the name of the shade you would like or search through our colour palettes and select the one you are looking for. We do not list all of the shades we can mix, so if you have a particular shade in mind, just type it in the box or send us an email so we can check whether we can mix that shade for you.
