Can this be used to paint over tile on bathroom and shower walls?

Asked by: Lydia
Lydia, The PermaWhite is an excellent choice for bathroom walls and ceilings but it would not be recommended for application inside of a shower on the shower walls. The Tub and Tile Refinishing Kit would be a better choice for this application.

Can this be applied if mold is already present?

I do plan on cleaning the mold off frist before I paint.
Asked by: Grant
If the mold and mildew is cleaned and removed before application, yes. Zinsser Perma-White Mold and Mildew-Proof Paint can be applied. Depending on the type of surface you are applying the product to, we recommend using Zinsser Mold Killing Primer first. This product is designed for non-porous surfaces and is ideal for application under Zinsser Perma-White.

1 gal. Perma-White Mold and Mildew-Proof Satin Interior Paint (Case of 2) is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Advertised as paint + primer in one. Product did not cover the sq. footage it should have and end... Advertised as paint + primer in one. Product did not cover the sq. footage it should have and ended up having to use almost twice the amount spec'd. Cleanup is not the easiest and the paint seems to eat through the adhesive of high quality painters tape. The walls look nice after the struggle however but have much work to do cleaning up stained trim and base board molding due to "bleeding".

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bathroom paint I used this as a primer coat before painting colors on top. I recently bought a house that had mildew in both bathrooms. Neither bathroom has a fan. The paint was kind of thin. However, it turned out nice as a basecoat before applying a thicker paint overtop. I wouldn't recommend it as the only coat on the walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job for many years Used this product around 2002 to paint small bathroom with terrible mold problem. I used to have to scrub the ceiling with bleach solution every 3 months (I wore goggles and tried to keep my mouth closed!) We had the tiles around the tub/shower removed, closed off the window, and had an acrylic surround put in. We painted ceiling and walls with Zinsser. (Tinted for walls.) It held back the mold for ten good years on ceiling, held up even better on walls. New house has ugly colors in bathrooms, will be using this again. Only caveat is that if you have it tinted, since the bright white has a blue (cool) cast, the tint might not be true to what you want. OTOH, altho it didn't quite match the tiles, hey, mold doesn't match anything!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I FINALLY HAD A CHANCE TO COME BACK AND CORRECT MY REVIEW FOR THE RECORD.... Like I stated in my first review on March 9, 2015 (Joe123) that I am not a professional painter, I scoured the internet to help with my problem that I faced that night. I found a recommendation to use "TSP" or trisodium phosphate to wash the ceiling. I went back to Home Depot only to find something called "TSP Substitute" (made by the same manufacturer as the original I saw online - which is supposedly a safer product to use and for the environment). I bought the dry powder version that gets mixed with water per the instructions. I first sanded down the monstrosity it originally left as best as I could and wiped off the sanding dust. I scrubbed the ceiling REALLY well using a solution of TSP Substitute and an old wash cloth, and then wiped it clean using a second bucket filled with rinse water and a clean wash cloth. I let the ceiling dry overnight (not a humid time of the year yet) and went back to cut in the ceiling as before. This time the paint behaved really well and as it should. After the cut-in work, I rolled the ceiling and it did not pull away any of the overlapped paint. Coverage appeared to be very good - not too thin or too thick. By the way, I did not realize that a Rustoleum company representative responded to my earlier post and they offered a product support phone number to discuss my issue. It was probably due to the fact that I unselected the response option for the email I provided when I posted the first review. Had I received timely notification and made the call, we probably would've discussed this method as a possible solution. I've revised the overall rating, quality and value to the above and hope this chain of reviews helps someone else. It's not to say that I won't experience poor durability or longevity, or see spots show up on the surface since it has only been a few months. If I don't come back and comment on this case within a year or so, consider it performing very well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TERRIBLE! POOR ADHESION OVER EXISTING PAINT! FIND ANOTHER PRODUCT! I'm not a professional painter, and I'm not an endorser of any paint manufacturer, product or anything like that. I'm an average Joe that needs to paint a relatively small bathroom ceiling where I recently added LED ceiling lights and my wife now would like the ceiling color changed as well. I chose this paint since it says that it is great for mold/mildew areas such as bathrooms, and I wanted to use what appeared to be a great product for the job (I don't want to be doing this again anytime soon). To note, I don't have prior history of mold or mildew in this bathroom. The existing ceiling paint (Glidden satin, approx 3 years old) held up very well. I began by reading the instructions and the label says the paint can be applied over existing painted surfaces as long as it is cleaned and sound. This paint does not need primer. I cleaned the entire ceiling with a household cleaner to remove any grime, then I sanded it lightly using a piece of sandpaper over a drywall sanding block. I wiped the ceiling down using a damp cloth & water to take off the dust and came back to paint a couple days later. I began painting by cutting in the ceiling at the walls and noticed this paint was not adhering to the existing finish very well. The problem occurs when I overlap some strokes - the brush pulls away areas the first strokes just put down. I know I shouldn't "over tool" the paint when applying by brush, but this is ridiculous. I got very frustrated, so I decided to stop and read the instructions again, check the internet, and clean the ceiling once more. Well, it still occurred and I'm beyond my limits of dealing with it. I didn't get to use the roller yet, but I'm worried what condition the ceiling will be left in after those overlapping movements. I've never experienced such terrible performance, and I've used a lot of different brands over the years. In my opinion, this is a very tricky paint to use over a sound existing finish. I'll be getting another brand - something that I've used before and know works well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Something wrong too watery I had purchased a gallon of semi gloss for a bedroom and after returning home found the paint as thin as water straight from the can. IT should be as thick as oil based.... I returned it to the store only to find the next can the same way. I am hoping the formula was not changed... I used to really like this paint. Either way it was a complete waste of my day.
